Prep: 15 minutesCook: 30 minutesTotal: 45 minutesDifficulty: Easy


  • 3 cups sweet potato, grated
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 12 Simple Truth Organic™ Cage Free Grade A Large Brown Eggs
  • Red onions, thinly sliced
  • 1⁄2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Avocado, sliced, to serve
  • Parsley, to garnish
  • Chives, to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare a standard muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place the grated sweet potato in a bowl. Stir in vegetable oil, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Place ¼ cup of the sweet potato mixture into the prepared muffin tin, pushing the sweet potatoes up the sides to create a nest. Bake for 15 minutes, or until slightly crisped.
  • Remove muffin tin from the oven and crack one egg into each sweet potato nest. Bake for 10-12 minutes for a soft yolk, or for 15 minutes for a hard yolk. Remove from the oven.
  • To remove the nests from the tray, run a knife around the inside of each cup. Serve each nest with a slice of avocado and parsley or chives. Refrigerate any leftovers.
