  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp ghee or avocado oil
  • 4 large eggs


  • salt and pepper
  • fresh herbs
  • microgreens
  • scallions or red onion
  • sesame seeds
  • hemp seeds
  • red pepper flakes or other spices


  • Spiralize the sweet potato. If spiralizing with the skin, make sure that it's thoroughly washed and scrubbed beforehand.
  • Use kitchen scissors to cut the sweet potato noodles into smaller lengths, which will help them form into nests.
  • Heat the ghee in a large pan on medium heat and add the sweet potato noodles. Use tongs to cook and toss the noodles for a couple of minutes, or until they've started to soften. Then, use your tongs to form them into individual nests with a little well in the middle.
  • Crack one egg on top of each sweet potato nest. Then, add a lid and cook the eggs until the whites are cooked and the yolks have reached your desired level of done.
  • Top the sweet potato egg nests with garnishes and serve immediately.
