A spin on the Filipino all-day breakfast tocilog (tocino, sinangag at itlog), egg noodles are substituted for the rice. Sweet-sour achara (pickled green papaya) adds a delightful contrast in flavor, texture and color.Remember to cook the tocino over medium-low heat to prevent the sugar in the marinade from scorching before the meat is done.

While the tocino cooks, drain the achara. Save the liquid.
Drizzle the achara liquid over the noodles and toss well.
Divide the cooked noodles among four shallow bowls.
Divide the cooked tocino into three portions and spread over the noodles.
