Sautéed Kale, Roasted Sweet Potato and Poached Egg Holiday Toast by cristinasciarra

This is the perfect breakfast if you're feeling like you've been overindulging -- especially with the sweets -- but still want something comforting and substantial. Chunks of sweet potato roasted in a little maple syrup, and kale wilted with onion and shallot make a nest for a soft poached egg, and all of this perches atop a chunky slice of toast layered with tangy pecorino. When you cut into the egg, the yolk becomes a silky sauce for all of the other elements. - A&M

There's a hint of maple syrup in the roasted sweets -- but not enough to make them cloying.

We softened a mix of onion and shallot in a pan large enough to be able to hold all the kale.

Giving the kale a rough chop. Who wants to deal with a whole kale leaf on their toast?

And then the kale -- a full bunch (ours was medium-ish).

A little apple cider vinegar and some salt and pepper to finish it off.

We eschew the swirling method when we poach eggs -- but it's up to you!

See the tiny bubbles on the sruface of the water at center stage? That's what you're looking for when you poach eggs -- the barest simmer.

Meanwhile, Amanda whips up some beautiful toast and layers it with paper-thin slices of pecorino.
