Baked Sweet Potato Egg Boats

Combine your favorite Paleo breakfast foods with these savory sweet potato boats.

In this simple recipe, sweet potatoes get twice-baked, once to soften the potatoes so the flesh can be scooped out and once more to bake the eggs inside.

Leaving the skins on sweet potatoes means there is plenty of fiber in each serving. Sweet potatoes can be baked up to 24 hours beforehand and then sliced when you’re ready to add the eggs for quick prep. Yams, white sweet potato, or even purple potatoes all work in this recipe.

How To Make An Egg Boat

In order to make room for the eggs, we scoop out ¼ to ⅓ cup of sweet potato. This leaves enough room for the eggs to spread and bake without overflowing. About 15 minutes cooks the egg whites and leaves the yolk runny. For fully cooked egg yolks, allow an extra 5 minutes of baking.

Pasture-raised bacon and chopped green onion finish off each potato boat, adding herby and smoky flavors that round out the recipe. Go ahead and sub in turkey or beef bacon if you’d like.

Other great toppings include nutritional yeast (for “cheesy” flavor without the dairy), chopped basil, or fresh chopped thyme.

Helpful Tips To Get You Started:

  • You need the right shape. Look for sweet potatoes that are evenly shaped and not too thin, with plenty of room for the eggs to fit. Medium or large potatoes work best.
  • How would you like your eggs? Eggs can also be scrambled and poured into the sweet potatoes, or you can bake them another 5 minutes for well-done eggs.
  • Don’t waste the filling! Reserve the sweet potato flesh that is scooped out to use in sweet potato fritters, mashed sweet potatoes, or even sweet potato brownies.
  • Enjoy these fresh. These egg boats are best enjoyed hot out of the oven for optimal flavor and texture.
