Description

A baked sweet potato with a gooey, delicious egg inside!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Sweet Potato
  • 2 teaspoons Real Butter
  • 2 whole Eggs

Preparation

First, bake your sweet potato. Here’s a simple method I use: pierce the sweet potato several times with a fork. Microwave for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to the oven and bake about 10-15 minutes.

Your potato is now soft on the inside. Cut it in half and scoop out some of the sweet potato on each half, forming a tiny bowl. Now break for a bit and enjoy a little snack with the scooped out potato flesh! I like drizzling mine with ketchup.

Drop 1 teaspoon of butter into each hole and cover with a cracked egg.

Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

Season with salt and pepper. Attack and enjoy the sweet, eggy, carby goodness.

I would never have thought to cook an egg on a sweet potato, ever in my life. And I am so glad I did.

It took my sweet potato waaaay too long to cook, but I think that’s because I used a slightly larger and more thin-skinned (therefore more fleshy) farmer’s market variety. So, I definitely need to play around with cooking times. However, once I got it together, OH MAN was it delicious.

I’m going to try boiling the sweet potato first, to see if that gets it softer better than microwaving. The ideal here would be to have a soft sweet potato with just a slightly runny, or at least not solidly cooked, egg. YUM.
