This English breakfast-inspired meal is as photogenic as it is delicious. First, potatoes are spiralized and baked until crispy. A baked tomato is a classic component of English breakfast; in this recipe, it sits atop homemade guac with a sprinkling of aromatic walnut Parmesan. Some freshly prepared simple guacamole helps to keep this little tower intact and is a creamy and delicious addition to balance out the crispy potatoes. It makes the dish perfect for a brunch with friends or family or it can be served for lunch, dinner, or as an appetizer.
