Recipe for Sweet Potatoes with Eggs, Spinach and Tomatoes. One-pan breakfast meal.

Breakfast is the BEST meal of the day. There is just something about feeding your family and enjoying a hearty breakfast together that cannot be beaten. Everyone is waking up from a wonderful and rested night and needs a great breakfast as a boost for the day. (It may also have something to do with the fact that I can enjoy my first cup of hot coffee in the morning, haha, love me some breakfast.)

Sweet potatoes and spinach have many health benefits. Not only is this breakfast so filling but you have no regrets enjoying the meal because you started your day with the right food.

I LOVE cubing fresh AVOCADO and adding it to the rest of the ingredients when serving. The avocado cubes are like the cherry on top of a really good ice cream. Seriously SOO good.

I usually like grated hash browns for breakfast. One day, my husband, who is not a fan of sweet potatoes asked for potatoes for breakfast. I was out of regular potatoes, so I used sweet potatoes instead. We were hooked ever since and prefer sweet potatoes over regular Idaho or Russell potatoes for breakfast. DON’T be discouraged to try this breakfast if you don’t typically like these ingredients, give this recipe a try. 🙂

INGREDIENTS for ONE-SKILLET MEAL:

  • ½ pound sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1/3 c. lightly packed fresh spinach
  • 1/4 c. sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Avocado, when serving

Over medium eggs with sweet potatoes in one skillet meal.

TIP TO MAKE SWEET POTATO & EGG ONE-SKILLET BREAKFAST-

  • Fully cook the sweet potatoes before adding the eggs and remaining ingredients.
  • When cubing the potatoes, be sure they are all the same in size so they cook evenly.
  • Don’t forget to close the lid on skillet once the eggs are added or else the bottom of the eggs will cook and the tops will be uncooked – not good!

Other favorite breakfast ideas we LOVE-

  1. Zucchini & Egg Breakfast Fritters– The cheese and ham filling is SOO good!
  2. Breakfast Sandwich– Yes, this is amazing with unexpected ingredients for breakfast.
  3. Warm Canapes– The perfect way to use leftover lunch meat and prepare your breakfast in advance for busy days. Love this recipe.
