Sweet Potato Egg Bake

img_5130Fact: not all dishes look pretty. Especially when the pan you cook them in has seen way better days.

Fact: just because it isn’t pretty doesn’t mean it isn’t delicious!!

I was really craving eggs and potatoes so I decided to mix them together to create a tasty dish! This was so delicious and involved a lot of pantry ingredients, which made it super simple to throw together.


1 large sweet potato or 2 small sweet potatoes, diced

3 eggs

1 cup egg whites

mozzarella cheese

2 cups spinach

1 medium white onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

salt + pepper


crushed red pepper

coconut oil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with foil, spray with coconut oil, and add diced sweet potatoes.  Some people like to peel the potatoes, but I don’t mind the skin (and was feeling lazy) so I didn’t.  Bake for about 25 minutes, until softened.

Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough oil to coat the pan.  Add diced onions and cook for about 3 minutes.  Add garlic and stir together.  Cook another two minutes and add spinach.  Stir everything together and season with salt, pepper, basil, and crushed red pepper (I really like pepper…).

Grease an 11″ X 9″ baking sheet (can also use an 8″ X 8″ or 9″ X 9″, just adjust cooking time). Add cooked sweet potatoes, spinach, onions, and garlic.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs + egg whites.  Add to the baking dish and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Cook for about 45 minutes, until eggs are set.

Let cool awhile before eating because it is HOT. But worth the wait 🙂

Adding a new baking sheet to my wishlist ASAP.
