Twice Baked Breakfast Sweet Potatoes

Servings: 4


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • Sea salt and black pepper (to taste)
  • 4 small eggs


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Poke sweet potatoes with a knife a couple times then place directly onto oven rack. Cook for 40-45 minutes until soft. Remove and let cool.
  2. In a large skillet, sauté onion and garlic in olive oil, stirring for about 1 minute. Add spinach and cook for about 5-7 minutes until onion is translucent and spinach is soft.
  3. Once sweet potatoes are cool, cut lengthwise then scoop out the middle of the sweet potato. I used a knife to cut about ¼ inch away from the skin all the way around, then I cut the middle into 3 pieces. This makes it easier to remove the middle without breaking the skin.
  4. Mash sweet potato into skillet. If it is a little undercooked, cover and cook for 10 more minutes.
  5. Stir in salt and pepper. Place sweet potatoes on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Scoop mash into potato shells then create a large divot for the egg. You will want to make sure the divot is big enough to fit the egg.
  7. Break 1 egg into each divot. Cook for 15 minutes or until yoke is set.
  8. Enjoy!
