Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet | Fill your breakfast bowl with spiced sweet potato, extra veggies, and a perfectly fried egg.
This is one of my favorite dishes. I am a savory breakfast person. I always choose eggs and toast over pancakes or waffles. What do you choose? If you like pancakes, check out this Triple Chocolate Pancake recipe on my site - it's a great one.
If you're #teamsavory, and possibly on a mission to be a healthier new you this year, (even if you're not, it's still delicious) then try out this recipe.
If you cut the potatoes pretty small, they hardly take any time at all to cook. This breakfast takes probably about 20 minutes or so.
How to make a sweet potato skillet
First I fry the potatoes with the onions and some spices, then add in whatever else I feel like that day. Usually some bell pepper, mushrooms, a bit of protein, and then top it with a fried egg. Perfection.
Also good with some avocado, sour cream or cheese on top.
