Sweet Potato Egg Breakfast

Sweet Potato Noodle Egg Nests

I’m pretty sure that my spiralizer is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets of all time. I have made noodles from different fruits and vegetables: broccoli stems, zucchini, apples, and cucumbers to name a few. For this recipe I wanted to try something new; try to incorporate veggie noodles into a breakfast meal! Thus came the sweet potato veggie noodle hash browns! Add an egg and you have a great protein + carb mix!

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled with ends cut off.
  • 4 eggs (2 per person)
  • 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil

Directions:

  1. Attach the sweet potato to the spiralizer and begin spiralizing! For further instruction watch this YouTube video. Divide the noodles into four piles (should be about a small handful or <1 cup).
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the noodles to the skillet, making sure to keep them in four separate piles. Gently hollow out a circle in the middle of the pile for the egg to settle. Let the noodles cook for 3-5 minutes, until golden brown on the bottom and form holding.
  4. Gently flip the noodles over and continue to cook for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy (like hash browns).
  5. Crack eggs into middle of hollowed area of noodle and cook 2-3 minutes, or until desired consistency. If you don’t like a runny yolk, you may want to flip the “egg nest” over to allow the yolk to cook.
  6. Serve immediately and enjoy! 

Santé!

Goat cheese and sweet potato frittata

Frittata with Spinach, Goat Cheese, Sweet Potato, and Caramelized Onions

I could have called this my kitchen counter frittata…but that doesn’t sound very delicious. Truly, that’s what this was. The beauty of a frittata is that there are no rules! You’re free to put whatever your heart (or stomach) desires into that skillet. Obviously eggs are a must but, other than that you are free! This combination was inspired by the items on my counter (and a few in my fridge). And since I made this on a Sunday, I had leftovers for breakfast all week! How fantastically easy! I might also recommend making a “muffin tin” version of this recipe….hand held goodness right there 🙂

Frittata with Spinach, Goat Cheese, Sweet Potato, and Caramelized Onions

  • Difficulty: easy

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of fresh baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 4 oz of goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 of a large sweet potato, skin removed and diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 large sweet onion, diced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium to large oven proof skillet, heat coconut oil. Add onion and sauté. Once translucent, add sweet potato and continue to sauté. Let cook until onions are a caramelized texture and potatoes are soft.
  3. Remove the onions and potatoes from the pan.
  4. In a large bowl, beat eggs with a fork until all yolks are broken and mixture is somewhat consistent. About 30-60 seconds.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, add goat cheese, sweet potatoes, onions, and spinach (spread evenly). Cook for 1 minute on stove over medium heat.
  6. Gently place skillet into oven and frittata cook for about 10-15 minutes. Once done, the eggs should be set but not browned.
  7. Serve from the skillet or slide on to a plate. Cut into 6-8 slices and enjoy! 

Santé!
