Sweet Potato and Eggs One Pan Dinner

Sweet Potato and Eggs One Pan Dinner

These sweet potatoes and eggs. This one pan dinner came out of sheer desire to eat a wholesome dinner and my lack of energy. Kid have sports around dinner time, so I either make dinner before or after, and it gotta be quick.

I’m exhausted either at 4PM or at 6:30PM. So tired that I decided to cut sweet potatoes in half instead of chopping. Similar to sweet potato skillet and sweet potato hash tired.

To season the yams, I dumped them into my most favourite stainless steel deep bowl with 1 tbsp of avocado oil and spices: garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, salt and pepper. I was too tired to even peel and grate a clove of garlic. Extra step and tool is extra step and tool. That is why I used garlic powder and didn’t dice potatoes.

Then I placed seasoned yams in a baking dish, a sheet pan or anything large for baking works. If you have got convection oven, use it – you will shave off about 5-7 minutes of cooking time. I literally sat down to browse fliers with a cup of tea (it cheers me up so much in the evening) to catch a breath. Man, at 6 PM the struggle is real. Then I added grape tomatoes (I was too exhausted even to cut “regular” tomatoes), cracked the eggs all around and crumbled some feta on top.

Voila. Isn’t it magic?! Today, I remade egg and sweet potatoes to post here, and enjoyed it for lunch with my mom’s adjika recipe. It was SO GOOD 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 (I prefer it to cow’s feta), avocado, adjika, hot pepper flakes and lime juice – OMG I DIED. With a glass of my kombucha (making kombucha from scratch is so easy and 30 times cheaper) – I died again.

And I had it again for dinner because swimming lessons and making new king size (!) bed (equal to a 20 minute run). You get the taste of hash browns, frittata or sweet potato egg bake without huge labour investment. Super easy healthy wholesome dinner right for just about Thursday when a thought of cooking dinner is depressing. Enjoy and I want you specifically to note that this sweet potato and eggs dinner was only for me and Alex, kids ate store bought local pirogies because they are weird and do not like sweet potatoes. So, I went crazy on black pepper and hot pepper flakes, woohoo. Cheers to 80% clean eating and sanity happily ever after!

    1. 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. 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.
