NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 4 carrots, diced
  • 4 parsnips, diced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 6 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 5 -ounce package baby arugula or mixed greens (about 8 cups)
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
  • 4 large eggs
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Toss the carrots, parsnips, red onion, garlic and 2 tablespoons olive oil on a baking sheet; season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Roast, stirring halfway through, until tender and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate using a slotted spoon; discard all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings from the skillet.

  • Whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and the vinegar in a large bowl. Add the roasted vegetables, bacon, arugula, parsley and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper and toss.

  • Heat the reserved bacon drippings in the skillet over medium-high heat. Crack in the eggs and fry until just set, about 4 minutes. Serve over the salad and top with more parmesan.
