Sweet Potato and Eggs are baked with spices, tomatoes, and feta cheese for an easy healthy one-pan dinner recipe.

Enjoy this sweet potato dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – like this sweet potato hash,  or sweet potato egg casserole, or even this Tex-Mex sweet potato skillet!

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! I love breakfast potato and egg casseroles like this healthy breakfast casserole (with veggies and potatoes) and this hashbrown breakfast casserole – this time I wanted something slightly elevated for dinner, with fried eggs instead of a mixed (so you can dip bread into the yolks)!

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!

Want more inspiration for sweet potatoes? You might like this equally easy one-pan chicken and veggies dinner, a sweet potato pizza crust for lunch, or even chipotle sweet potato hummus as a snack or appetizer.

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 (or guacamole), salsa and lime juice. My family loves this dish served with a side of my mom’s adjika recipe.

I love the combination of eggs with veggies – like this vegetable frittata, these quinoa veggie egg muffins, spaghetti squash quiche with kale and mushrooms, and crustless spinach quiche.

How to Make Sweet Potato and Eggs

There is a full recipe card below. 

  • Prep: Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and line your baking dish with parchment paper and cooking spray.
  • Cut and season sweet potatoes: Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. No need to peel! Then dump sweet potatoes into a deep bowl with avocado oil and spices.seasoned Sweet potato in metal bowl
  • 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.
