Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet Recipe

Make this one pot Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet for a simple & fresh healthy meal to brighten up your morning with protein and veggies!

A few years ago, I tried the Whole30, which essentially cuts out sugar, grains, dairy, and legumes.

It was a little too restrictive for me to continue long-term.

Eating out was crazy difficult, I missed quinoa, and it’s amazing how many things have sugar in them (like most bacons?!)!

But one of the foods I loved making for my Whole30 compliant breakfasts was sweet potato hash.

It was so simple.

Just 3 ingredients – sweet potato, apple, and onion sauteed in a skillet.

It was just sweet enough, filling, and it felt like it was a special treat since it was out of my breakfast norm.

How To Make This Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet

I decided to jazz that recipe up a little bit by adding baby spinach.

This is seriously my favorite healthy breakfast hack – add baby spinach to all the things!

There is no chopping, no prep, just open the bag and throw it in for a powerful nutritional punch.

Tip – You could definitely use frozen spinach too, just know that will add more moisture.

And I also cracked some eggs on top because I am a big believer in protein-filled breakfasts to set you up for a more successful day of healthy eating.

You have yourself a healthy, protein and nutrient-rich sweet potato breakfast skillet.

This is a fantastic dish to serve overnight guests or to prove to your brother-in-law that sweet potatoes make an awesome breakfast food (not that I would know anything about that…).

Scoop, serve, and enjoy!

I said that this recipe serves 4 because I like that egg-potato ratio best, but these are pretty generous servings.

If you wanted to crack 6 eggs on top, that would absolutely work!

Helpful hint – mooching fresh rosemary from your mother’s rosemary plant also adds a little something special. I highly recommend it.

Oh this looks awesome! Question, I don't like my eggs runny - could I make this but with maybe scrambled or fried eggs?

Becky

Absolutely! If you bake it for 10 minutes, the yolks should be firm inside, but you could totally just serve this alongside scrambled or fried eggs! Truthfully, I just love one-pot meals because it saves me dishes. ;-)
