Roasted Portobellos, Chard, and Fried Egg Stackers
with bacon

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min

Instead of a risotto, our paleo members get to make a colorful stacker made up of roasted portobellos, fresh sliced tomatoes, bacon sauteed chard, and an ooey gooey fried egg.
Smarts: This would make a fancy brunch dish if you were hosting a smaller brunch. It's a much healthier benedict!

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F (or 218C) degrees.
  2. Place portobellos onto a sheet pan and brush mushrooms with some oil. Sprinkle with thyme and some salt and pepper. Transfer to oven and roast for 12 to 15 minutes.
  3. While mushrooms are roasting, heat a large non-stick frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain all but 1 tbsp (15 ml) of fat (for 4 servings; adjust accordingly if customizing) from the pan. Add garlic to bacon. Once you can smell the garlic, add chard stems and saute for ~3 minutes. Fold in chard leaves. Saute until leaves are softened. Finish with vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Wipe pan and return to medium heat. Add cooking oil and then crack eggs into the heated oil. Fry for ~3 minutes and then lower heat and cover with a lid and cook for another 2 to 4 minutes depending on level of yolk done-ness desired.
  5. Once mushrooms are done roasting, layer with tomato, chard and bacon, and top with fried egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper (and top with any other desired condiment). Enjoy!

I made this before but added it to this week's menu. I didn't do the chard but added spinach to the risotto. Very good.

I ditched the mushrooms and added pancetta. Didn't care for the garlicky chard, but I would definitely make this risotto again.

Guests were impressed with this somewhat foolproof risotto method. Said it was very much like traditional. I used a cast iron fryer skillet and a mix of veggie and chicken broth. I used more garlic for the beans and chard (we like it very garlicy) and next time I might throw the beans in a bit later. Mine started falling apart a bit earlier than I wanted. If I were to make this side again with something other than risotto, I'd probably serve with crusty bread toast points.

This was awesome! I always use a traditional risotto method and use white wine and Parmesan. I also added more mushrooms.

Added cheese and served it with thinly sliced steak for the male crowd.
