This recipe for baked eggs with spinach in these awesome sweet potato BOATS is going to elevate your breakfast game 100%. That’s how you can sell this to your kids. Who doesn’t want to eat breakfast in a sweet potato BOAT? Pretty cool if you ask me.
Another thing I love about this recipe is I can make a batch and then have breakfast ready for days. Meal prepping for the win.
The yolks get a little more cooked when I reheat, but I still love ’em.
Eggs+spinach+sweet potato is just such a great combination. Yes, it’s super healthy. But really, it’s all about the flavor!! I can’t get enough of this and have been eating it for two weeks straight.
Let me show you how the prep goes down. The only part that takes a while is initially cooking the sweet potato. BUT. You can easily cut that down by using your microwave. No judgement here. 😉 Ours just happens to be broken at the moment and we’re kind of getting used to living without it. So let’s check out this (easy!) process!
How to Make Baked Eggs and Spinach in Sweet Potato Boats
First you need to cook your sweet potatoes. It’ll take about 10 minutes in the microwave, or an hour in the oven. Then you want cut them in half and scoop out the flesh, leaving a small rim of flesh around the edges and a little bit in the bottom. You want to leave room for the spinach and egg to bake inside.
Next, you add some butter and chopped spinach and pat it down so there’s room for the egg. (Butter is optional. Kind of.)
Then you carefully crack one egg inside of each sweet potato half.
These go into the oven and are ready in about 15 minutes.
You can bake them longer if you want the yolk cooked through, but I’m all about the runny egg!
