Sweet Potato, Guacamole, Chicken Sausage, Soft Boiled Egg…Breakfast for dinner?

I know I’m not the only person that loves breakfast for dinner!  And, I also know that it’s kind of a repeat for me, but…it’s easy and DELICIOUS!  Who wouldn’t want that?!

I literally came up with this meal 30 minutes before I was supposed to make it, and it took me approximately 30 minutes to make.  Admittedly, because I ran inside while Maya was playing with our neighbors.  I turned on the oven, peeled and chopped the sweet potatoes, seasoned them, and turned on the pot for the eggs, in…less than 5 minutes.  Then…we played for a few more minutes.

THANK GOD FOR LITTLE DISTRACTIONS, NO?!!!

And, precooked chicken sausages are a godsend in our household.  I freeze them for later, and soak them in a warm water bath right before I need them!

Diced up for a pasta meal, or sliced in half for this!  SO easy, delicious, and healthy!

Blog Sweet Potato Guacamole Chicken Sausage Soft Boiled Egg Whole30 Paleo Gluten Free-1 Blog Sweet Potato Guacamole Chicken Sausage Soft Boiled Egg Whole30 Paleo Gluten Free-2 What you need…

  • One sweet potato (for 2-4 people)
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea salt
  • 3 Pre Cooked Chicken sausage (Depending on the amount of people you want to feed!  I did one per adult, and half for Maya) I love Aidell’s, but there are so many good ones!
  • Avocado (or pre-made guacamole-yes, I cheated on this one!)
  • Eggs (2 for me and the Huz, one for Maya)

What to do…

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut sweet potato in 1/2 inch slices
  • Lightly coat in olive oil (or oil of your choosing), and salt and pepper to taste
  • Start a pot of boiling water.  For me, it’s a LOT easier to soft boil eggs for more than two people.  If you want a runny egg and there’s more than 2, it’s way too much for me to manage on top of everything else!!!
  • Bake the sweet potatos in the oven for 20-25 minutes, flipping over half way through.
  • At the half way mark add chicken sausages that are cute in half.
  •  In that time, remove the eggs from the boiling water.  7 minutes = runny yolk, 8 minutes, less, so…I remove ours at 7, and then turn the heat off for Maya’s while ours then run under a cool water bath.
  • Once the sweet potatoes are crispy on the outside, take them and the chicken sausages out.
  • Layer everything and enjoy!dit-elle-Lauren

 

Avocado Sweet Potato “Toast” with a Fried Egg…

I’ve talked before about my love of avocado toast and…having it as breakfast for dinner.  Honestly, we eat a variation of avocado toast with eggs quite a lot for dinner.  Maya requests it all the time, and it’s such an easy thing to whip up, that I rarely say no haha.

We didn’t have any good bread the other night, but we did have a sweet potato.  SO, we unintentionally went the  healthier route haha.  And it was SO GOOD!!!! Blog Whole 30 Avocado Sweet Potato Toast Fried Egg-1 Blog Whole 30 Avocado Sweet Potato Toast Fried Egg-2 Blog Whole 30 Avocado Sweet Potato Toast Fried Egg-3Ingredients

  • 1 Medium size sweet potato
  • Avocado (amount varies on how many people you are going to feed)
  • Eggs (depends on how many people you want to feed)
  • Olive oil + Salt + Pepper to lightly coat the sweet potato

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut sweet potato in 1/2 inch slices
  • Lightly coat in olive oil (or oil of your choosing), and salt and pepper to taste
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, flipping over half way through.
  • Once the sweet potatoes are crispy on the outside, take them out.
  • Fry up your eggs.  I like mine runny, so they only take a few minutes.  I cook Maya’s for a little bit longer, so her yolks aren’t runny.
  • Mash up the avocado on top of the layered sweet potatoes, then top with your egg.
  • Serve as is or with a yummy salad or slaw (check out Esther’s recipes here,  here,  and here.
  • I cheated and used Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Crunch Collection of Chopped Kale, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli and Green Cabbage & Red Cabbage, and added some bell peppers, tomatos, and avocado.  It was delicious!!!  And Maya chowed the whole thing down 🙂
