Loaded Breakfast Sweet Potatoes
All the yummy Mexican flavors with these customized loaded breakfast sweet potatoes – makes me wanna salsa!
If you’re tired of eating eggs on toast, you can try eggs on sweet potato toasts (yeah, it’s totally a thing!) or just have eggs inside a baked sweet potato. The combination of eggs and sweet potatoes is just so good, regardless how you prepare them! All you have to do is bake the sweet potatoes for about 45 minutes in the oven…that’s the part that takes some slight pre-planning so you’re not done cooking the eggs and staring at the oven. Other than than, scramble the eggs however you’d like to, stuff them inside the hot mashed sweet potatoes and top it with your favorite Mexican condiments. I love putting salsa, mashed avocados, sour cream, cilantro and some hot sauce. But you can also just put fresh tomatoes and avocado if you’d like, or just shredded cheese and hot sauce. You get the idea. And you get to be in charge of customizing it!
I make these for my husband and I for the weekend, set up a little DIY station with all the condiments and we go to town. It may look like a lot for one person to eat the whole enchilada…errr loaded breakfast sweet potatoes, but I’ve seriously never had trouble finishing one. Then again, I don’t have trouble finishing a lot of foods #foodieproblems!
These loaded breakfast sweet potatoes are officially my favorite way to kick off the weekend!
