I like meals that can be put together quickly and go into a pot or oven for a bit while I do other things (like wander back to my hot cup of coffee and snuggly boys). This sweet potato egg bake is a great breakfast or brunch meal - or a breakfast for dinner kind of thing, which seems to always be a hit with the younger set. I love the sweet richness of sweet potatoes. They are a good source of fiber, iron, potassium, and vitamins like C, B6, and A - not to mention they have a lower glycemic index than white potatoes and studies have shown they may even be able to help regulate blood sugar. They are a nice replacement for white potatoes in a breakfast dish, and kids love them.
Sweet Potato Egg Bake
One pot meal - great for breakfast or brunch - with sweet potatoes, onions, garlic, turmeric, asparagus, eggs, and more. Quick stovetop prep, ready out of the oven!
Start by sautéing 1 diced onion, 1 tsp freshly grated turmeric, and 2 cloves of minced garlic in a drizzle of olive oil in an oven safe pot on your stovetop.
I love how the miso tastes with the sweet potatoes, and that musky light flavor that the turmeric adds. It is a nice quick one pot wonder, giving me some extra time to enjoy my morning.
