This Spanish baked egg and potato dish makes a lovely presentation when cut in squares. The tangy and crunchy jicama relish adds great flavor and texture.

Ingredients

6 large eggs
1 tsp. salt
1⁄2 tsp. black pepper
1⁄2 cup olive oil
2 large potatoes (about 1 lb.), peeled and sliced into
1⁄8-in. thick rounds
1 large onion, diced
1-2 red bell peppers, roasted, peeled, seeded, and sliced
Chopped cilantro or parsley
1 1⁄2 cups diced, peeled jicama
1 cup diced, peeled orange
1⁄2 cup diced red onion
Lime juice, to taste
 

Steps

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat eggs with salt and pepper until frothy; set aside.

2. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy, ovenproof skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add potatoes and coat well with oil; sauté 10 min. until just starting to brown lightly.

3. Add onion; sauté 5 min. until golden. Stir in peppers and pour in egg mixture; reduce heat to moderate. Cook 2-3 min., stirring the cooked egg portion from sides of skillet and shaking the pan occasionally to prevent sticking. (Egg mixture should still be runny.)

4. Place skillet in oven. Bake eggs 15-20 min. until set and no longer wet on top. Sprinkle with cilantro or parsley.

5. Meanwhile, combine jicama, orange, and red onion in small bowl. Stir in chopped cilantro and lime juice to taste. Cut tortilla into squares and serve with a side of jicama relish.

From Bush’s Best®.

Imitating restaurant trends has long been a way to increase participation in K-12 meal programs. As consumer drive for ethnic flavors continues to ramp up—it was named as a top trend by the National Restaurant Association earlier in 2018—it’s no surprise that school meal operators are looking to bring those qualities to the lunchroom. And ethnic inspiration isn’t the only restaurant trend popping up on school menus. Plant-forward cuisine and customizable options are also proliferating.

Though consumers are interested in improving their food choices, they can be easily scared away by dishes that sound too healthy .

For instance, according to Technomic’s Healthy Eating Consumer Trend Report , 30% of diners ages 18-34 said they would choose an indulgent menu item over a healthier one because they thought the indulgent item would taste better.

To diners, good tasting and good for you don’t usually go together. With that in mind, today’s chefs are meeting that challenge by marketing delicious, flavorful, indulgent dishes that also happen to be healthy....
