INGREDIENTS

1 small-medium sweet potato (peeled)

2 small eggs

1-2 TBS olive oil

salt and pepper

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC.

Spiralized sweet potatoes are easy to make using a spiralizer or even easier, purchase spiralized sweet potato in the produce section of your market.

Blanch the sweet potato curls in boiling water for about 4-5 minutes, drain and rinse with cold water and pat dry. 

Toss blanched spirals with olive oil

Arrange the spirals on parchment paper on a baking sheet into a nest shape with an indentation in the center where the egg will go. Bake for about 8-9 minutes. 

Remove the nests from the oven and crack an egg into the center of each nest. Place in the oven again and bake for about 3 minutes or until the egg white turns opaque but the yolk is still soft.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy warm!
