Sweet Potato and Eggs One Pan Dinner

Yummy Wholesome One Pan Dinner

Sweet potato and eggs came out of a sheer desire to eat a wholesome dinner and my lack of energy. Kids have sports activities around dinner time, so I either make dinner before or after. That means dinner has to be quick and easy, like one pan dinner!

And did I mention that this recipe is SO GOOD?!

I remade this recipe again today and I had to put my laptop away and just eat, I couldn’t stop. Grape tomatoes were popping in my mouth, barely soft with tender skin. Eggs were cooked perfectly – not runny, but not thick solid. And sweet potatoes with goat feta cheese, avocado, hot pepper flakes and lime juice were a flavor explosion!

Ingredients for Sweet Potato and Eggs

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Eggs
  • Feta cheese: I like goat milk feta cheese, but you can also use cow’s milk feta cheese.
  • Seasonings: Garlic powder, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. You can also use fresh garlic, but it is an extra step and tool!
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Garnishes: Green onions, cilantro, hot pepper flakes, avocado, salsa and lime juice. My family loves this dish served with a side of my mom’s adjika recipe.

  • Bake sweet potatoes: Place the seasoned sweet potatoes in a prepared baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes or until knife tender. If you are using a convection oven, the baking time will be reduced by 10 minutes or so.Sweet potato in baking dish
  • Add remaining ingredients: Add grape tomatoes and crack eggs all around. Don’t forget to sprinkle some crumbled feta on top. Bake again for 9-10 minutes or until the egg whites are opaque.
  • Garnish: Remove from the oven, garnish as desired and enjoy hot!

Storing and Reheating

Storing and reheating: Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. I would say the best way to reheat would be in a microwave as you don’t want to be tossing potatoes and eggs around to make a mush.

Freezing: Sweet potato does not freeze well, so I wouldn’t recommend it.

      Oh my goodness! Made this for supper! How fast, easy, and delicious! One pan/pot meals are a life saver! Thank you 🙂

    2. I am doing this tonight!!! Also, I’m not sure I have enough sweet potatoes, so I may try to mix whatever few I have left with aubergine. Mmmmthis sounds so promising!!!

    3. Who ever started that silly rumor that potatoes are a bad thing anyway? I LOVE the spud! Sweet and white! We maybe don’t need to eat them all of the time, but especially if we stick with organic and eat that scrubbed clean skin, they’re healthy!

    4. 5 stars
      Love this one and it’s one of things where most people have everything already. Have you made Eggs N Spaghetti before? We love that too! Can be meat sauce, or plain. I cheat and use organic jarred sauce and add my own lean organic grass fed ground beef or I grind my own organic turkey or chicken breast. I’m sure you know I’m going with this!

      But yours! Making it! And I’m not happy to wrestle our king sized bed either, but oh so happy to jump into a refreshed bed at night! Such a treat! Not a treat? Trying to fold that washed mammoth bottom sheet and make it look nice and unwrinkled when I put it back on!

      1. I grew up on pasta and eggs for dinner.:) And pasta with onions. Everything was panfried, of course. We had no microwaves and running an oven was expensive.
        I love my kin size bed. I’m used to its size, it has been 13 years. I do not fold my fitted sheet, just put it on the bed, nobody can see it anyways. But now with my 800 thread Egyptian cotton the sheets look much more neat and less wrinkled than before.

    5. Hi Olena, I just found your website yesterday in my search to continue with our new clean eating lifestyle. Let me tell you, I woke up this morning very excited in anticipation of your post. My boyfriend and I just started this new way of eating and we feel fantastic. I found a two week plan on Popsugar, but my fear was where do we go from here. Then I found you after numerous sites that didn’t speak to me. THANK YOU!! The last couple weeks have been adventurous and satisfying, but I needed to figure out how to sustain this new lifestyle. Bravo to you and your hard work. BTW, I make a breakfast version of todays recipe and it’s one of my FAVORITES. Can’t wait to add a dinner version to my list.

      1. You are welcome, Christina. Glad to hear you are enjoying and not suffering. Really, clean eating is just a normal wholesome eating without processed stuff we shouldn’t be eating anyways. Today I made Smitten Kitchen’s dutch baby modified with whole wheat flour and maple syrup that was to die for. Really, eating healthy doesn’t mean deprivation or weird food. Good luck to you! You will feel great about your life – no guilt!

    6. This looks so so so so good! Making it!
      Also…making a king size bed. Wow. Difficult. I try to get my daughter to help but did it alone last time. Let’s just say there was a lot of sighing and f-bomb dropping. But clean sheets are worth the struggle.

      1. Haha. I usually make the bed with Alex or he does it. It is a freaking huge bed but I love the space. This time though, I bought all new bedding and a quilt, so it was like a 2 hour event – to wash new ones, to put away old ones, to see what looks nice, to vacuum and dust inside/under/behind the bed (and once I start there is no end to it – dust above the bed on the picture, on the crown molding lol). I didn’t want to wait till night when Alex gets home, I’m tired by then. And I’m glad I did it although keeping your house clean and up to date is so much work. But now we have this luxurious Four Seasons like bed with 800 thread Egyptian cotton sheets. Love it! I don’t have to go on vacations now haha. Now I want to buy a new bed though.
