Soooo this weekend, I cooked. and cooked. There were a lot of recipes I’ve been pinning on pinterest that needed to be made… so Sunday, I made my food for the week! Roasted green beans in the over, bacon-wrapped honey mustard chicken fingers, bacon & brussel sprout hash, and the best recipe of all… Sweet potato egg nests! These are perfect to make for 2 people – and all you really need are eggs and 1 sweet potato! Recipe is below!
Paleo Skillet Sweet Potato Egg Nests
- 4 eggs
- 1 sweet potato
- oil of choice (I used coconut)
- Salt/pepper to taste
- added spices to taste (optional)
Peel sweet potato with a vegetable peeler (or julienne peeler) and place all peelings into a cast iron skillet. Top with 1/4 cup coconut oil (or oil of choice) and mix in with sweet potatoes, turning the heat to medium on the stove. Add in your spices. Cook the sweet potatoes until soft, about 10-12 minutes. Make 4 little “baskets,” and crack open an egg in each one. Cook for about 1 minute, until the white are cooked on the bottom. Take the skillet and place in the oven to Broil on high for 1-3 minutes, or until eggs have cooked to your liking. Remove from oven, and let cool for a few minutes. Use a spatula to scoop out – and Enjoy!
