Let’s address the title of this recipe for a moment. It’s cute, right? Okay well you’re a sicko because it’s actually kind of cruel. Or primal…whichever direction you want to take it.
The eggs in this “nest” are cooked and eaten. So it makes me think of cute little baby birds being fried alive. Maybe that’s just me…
Goodness, I’m strange.
Sweet potato hash and eggs are my two breakfast favorites. I usually plop the egg on the potato hash after I cook it. So when I break the egg to eat it the yolk sinks into the hash. Why not put them together in one pan? Another one skillet meal! This is similar to the egg in a basket recipe where you fry an egg in the hole of a piece of bread. But that’s not paleo and this is. 😉
Makes 2 nests
- 1 small sweet potato
- 1 small yellow onion
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp fresh herbs – I use parsley
- 2 tsp fat of choice (olive oil, lard, ghee, avocado oil, etc)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Chop the onion into dices. Shred the sweet potato on a grater or mandolin slicer. Combine both veggies with herbs and salt & pepper. I also like to add FlavorGod ‘everything’ seasoning.
After melting your fat in a frying pan add the sweet potato mixture. Stir until tender. This should only take a minute or two. Next, spread out the sweet potato along the bottom of the pan and create a little hole for the egg. Drop in the egg and then lower the heat to medium-low. Cover for a minute or two. The time will depend how you like your egg. I like mine over medium.
