Breakfast Egg Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Breakfast Egg Stuffed Sweet Potatoes | Roxy's Kitchen A super filling five-ingredient breakfast loaded with vitamins & nutrients.

We love having eggs in the morning, usually hard boiled or sunny side up eggs and omelettes. But on weekends we prefer a more filling and nutritious breakfast and these Breakfast Egg Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are just the prefect choice! They are loaded with mozzarella cheese and bacon and topped with fresh parsley – who wouldn’t love this!?  You can make them with russet or red potatoes instead of sweet potatoes, depending on personal preference. I prefer sweet potatoes not only because they are tastier but because they are a lot more nutritious and packed with vitamins B, C & D, iron and magnesium. If you feel like it, you can enjoy them as an appetizer or even as a light dinner. 

Time: 30 min, Prep: 10 min.  Cook: 20 min.
Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 large baked sweet potatoes (poke potatoes with fork & bake @ 400°F / 200 °C for 1 hour or until you can slide a fork through without resistance)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 4 bacon slices
  • 4 eggs
  • Fresh parsley
  • Salt & pepper

 

Directions:

Cut of each baked potato (bake them the night before or use any leftover baked potaotes!) in half and scoop out some of the flesh. The more you take out the more cheese and bacon you can add.

    Roxy, what did you do with the scooped out sweet potato flesh? Anything special?

    And I like my bacon crispy, so should I precook it before putting it into the potatoes?

      Hi Karen,

      I usually make mashed sweet potatoes for our toddler… he loves it :). Just add little bit of milk and butter and salt & pepper to taste.
      You can definitely precook the bacon. But it would probably be better to put it into the potatoes, on top of the cheese, after baking the potatoes for 10-15 mins…if you add it from the beginning it might become crispier than expected :). Or you can add it from the beginning but first break an egg into each potato half, add the bacon and then top with mozzarella cheese to avoid overcooking/burning the bacon.
