  • Serves 4
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook/Bake Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, baked and cooled
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup spinach, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons water or milk
  • 2 tablespoons feta cheese (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.


  • Cut baked sweet potatoes in half and carefully scoop out the center of each half, leaving a about 1/2-inch border of sweet potato left.
  • Sprinkle each half with salt and pepper (use about 1/2 teaspoon of each total). Divide spinach, tomato, and feta if using evenly between each sweet potato half.
  • Mix together eggs with remaining 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and water or milk. Carefully pour into whisked eggs into sweet potato halves.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until eggs are set.

NOTE: Feel free to crack eggs directly into each half of the potato if you’d prefer not to scramble your eggs. For a heartier dinner dish, add cooked chicken or turkey.
