Eggs In Sweet Potato Nests Recipe.
Eggs and sweet potatoes are a classic Paleo breakfast: switch it up a little by trading the omelet-and-baked-potato combo for these cute, bite-sized egg nests. Lining the holes in a muffin tin with grated sweet potato makes a “nest” around each egg, and baking everything keeps it much easier than it looks. Baking the potatoes isn’t terribly fast, but it’s very hands-off (you literally just put them in the oven and walk away), and assembling the nests is also very simple.
- 4 sweet potatoes;
- 12 eggs;
- 6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled;
- 2 tbsp. fresh chives, minced;
- Cooking fat, melted;
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper;
- Muffin tin;
- Preheat your oven to 400 F.
- Bake the sweet potatoes until almost tender (35 to 40 minutes).
- Allow the sweet potatoes to cool down. Then peel them, grate them into a bowl, and season to taste.
- Grease a muffin pan generously with cooking fat.
- Scoop 2 to 3 tablespoons of sweet potato into each muffin cup.
- Use your fingers to make a nest shape in each muffin cup.
- Return the muffin shells to the oven and bake for about 10 minutes.
- Crack an egg into each nest, season to taste, and sprinkle with fresh chives.
- Place back into the oven and cook until the eggs are set, about 10 to 12 minutes.
- Remove the nests from the pan, and serve topped with crumbled bacon.
