  • 1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 medium eggplant, diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 slices of rustic bread, cubed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (or 1 teaspoon dried thyme)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Dice the pork chops, sweet potatoes, and eggplant.

  4. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat.
  5. Add the diced pork, season with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.
  6. Cook until the pork is browned and fully cooked, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  7. In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of olive oil.
  8. Add the sweet potatoes and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  9. Add the eggplant, mushrooms, and corn. Cook until all vegetables are tender, about 8-10 minutes.

  11. Return the cooked pork to the skillet with the vegetables.
  12. Sprinkle the sugar over the mixture and stir to combine well. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  13. In a separate pan, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.
  14. Add the cubed rustic bread and toast until golden and crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  15. In the same pan, fry the eggs to your preference (sunny side up, over easy, etc.).
  16. Divide the pork and vegetable mixture among four plates.
  17. Top each plate with a portion of toasted bread cubes.
  18. Place a fried egg on top of each serving.
  19. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if using.
