Egg & Sweet Potato Nest of Goodness


This is Ryan’s favorite and mostly because his love for sweet potatoes makes me question his love for me. It’s super simple with only 5 ingredients but it’s crazy filling and comforting. Something about the fired egg intermingled with the crispy sweet potato noodles that just gets you going!

Serving Size: 2-3

Prep time: 2 minutes

Cook time: 8-10 minutes 

Total time: 12 minutes 



  • 2 tbsp. Avocado or Coconut Oil 
  • 4 cups Spiralized Sweet Potatoes (The Inspiralizer: one of my favorite kitchen tools to make your own)
  • 4 eggs 
  • S&P
  • Franks RedHot & Green Onion for topping 
  1. Heat 2 tbsp. of avocado or coconut oil over medium heat in a medium size skillet, preferably cast iron. Once heated and oil has evenly coated the skillet, add the spiralized sweet potatoes, season with S&P. Note: each cup will make up your individual nest. 
  2. Group the sweet potatoes in a ball and create what looks like a bird nest. Once you have them shaped, take a spoon and create a hole in the middle exposing some of the skillet. Do these 4 times.
  3. Crack each egg into the individual sweet potato nests. Let the eggs cook, about 2 minutes. 
  4. With a large spatula, flip each nest to cook the other side. This is preference on how you like your eggs. If you like them sunny side up, skip the flip. If you want the whites cooked but yolk runny (over easy) flip and cook for 30 seconds to a minute. Or break the yolk completely after you flip and have a straight up fried egg!
  5. Top each one with a couple of dabs on Franks RedHot Sauce and sliced green onion.
  6. Then stuff it!
