Baked Sweet Potato Egg Cups



Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • Chopped green onions

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a muffin tin with coconut oil.
  3. Peel and shred the sweet potato. Squeeze out the excess moisture.
  4. In a bow, mix the sweet potato, oil, salt, pepper and any other spice you prefer (I added a salt-free garlic seasoning).
  5. Press the potato shreds into each muffin cup to create little nests.
  6. Bake the sweet potato cups for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and crack an egg into each cup.
  8. Top with a little salt and pepper.
  9. Return to the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  10. Top with green onions.
  11. Enjoy!
