Fried Eggs on Sweet Potato “Toast”

So, I love eggs on toast. I miss it!  But it was just something consigned to the “Pre-Paleo” days.. until my cousin, Louise, introduced me to this version.  Sure, I was skeptical at first but it totally works! Its now one of my favourite Paleo breakfasts.  This is how I do it, and these quantities are for one person.  Its pretty basic but I wanted to put it up anyways.

 

So, your ingredients:

2 eggs + 1 small sweet potato (this was NOT a small sweet potato – it was medium – and it was too much for one person)
Your method:

Peel & slice the sweet potato into thick (1cm) slices. You can go for round slices or lengthways, depending on the size and shape of your sweet potato. I did both, to demonstrate:

Place slices in dry frypan / sandwich press or under grille.  I use a sandwich press because, provided your slicing is neat, you can cook both sides at once and it cuts down the cooking time. Fry until cooked through, 5-10 mins, turning as necessary.

Cook in batches if required, put cooked pieces on a plate and into the oven/microwave to keep warm. When you are done, or are on your last batch, fry up two eggs:

Again – the sandwich press allows me to do both top and bottom simultaneously – saves time 🙂

 

Then its just a matter of putting your slices of “toast” on the plate, topping with your eggs, and voila!  Yum yum yum.

Again, I know this is simple… but it had never occurred to me, so maybe there are those out there its never occurred to either. Anyway – hope you enjoy, let me know if you try it and what you think, or any variations or improvements that you make!

 

Thanks for reading – til next time,
