Steamed Egg over Roasted Vegetable Israeli Couscous with Bacon and Parmesan

I love eating eggs with leftovers. As I was eating dinner last night I envisioned the leftover couscous with a steamed egg and a bit of bacon, parmesan, and parsley sprinkled on top. I made it for lunch today and it was AMAZING.  I will seriously make this recipe again and again. I wish I had more leftover couscous so I could make this dish for lunch again tomorrow. I highly recommend this recipe!

 

If you don’t have leftover couscous, see recipe here.

Cook the bacon in a small skillet over medium heat. Remove from the pan when it has cooked through and place on a paper towel to drain. Once the bacon has cooled, chop or rip it into small pieces. Remove all but a quarter teaspoon of bacon grease  from the skillet. Add the leftover couscous to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes.

While the couscous is heating up, boil some water in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Add a poaching cup to the liquid and spray the cup with cooking spray. Crack an egg into the cup, making sure not to break the yolk. Cover with a lid and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the egg white is solid but the yolk is still soft. Remove the poaching cup from the pan of water.

Place the couscous into a bowl. Sprinkle with bacon. Place the poached egg on top followed by a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
