Everything Breakfast Bowl
with soft-boiled eggs / spinach / sweet potato home fries
These bowls have the simplicity and heartiness of a good diner breakfast with a modern twist from avocados and Everything Bagel Seasoning sprinkled on top.
Smarts: You can buy pre-mixed Everything Bagel Seasoning or search for a recipe to make it yourself - you likely already have everything you need in the pantry.
- Sweet potatoes - 1 1/2 lbs , shredded
- Garlic - 2 cloves , chopped
- Tomatoes, cherry or grape - 1 cup , halved (sub any tomatoes)
- Avocados - 1 , chopped
- Oil, olive - 1 Tbsp
- Baby spinach - 5 oz
- Lemon juice - 1 tsp
- Oil, cooking - 2 Tbsp
- Eggs - 8
- Everything Bagel Seasoning - 1 Tbsp
- Hot sauce (opt) - for serving
Bring a small saucepan of water (for the eggs) to a boil. (If the water starts to boil before you are ready to add the eggs, reduce the heat to maintain a low simmer.)
While waiting for the water to boil, place a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, garlic, and spinach with some salt. Saute until spinach is wilted, 2 to 4 minutes. Squeeze lemon juice over top. Transfer spinach to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
Wipe out the pan and add cooking oil. Add sweet potatoes, spreading them out in a single layer. Season with some salt and pepper. Allow the potatoes to cook on one side until deep golden brown. Continue to cook, occasionally flipping with a spatula, until all of the potatoes are golden and crisp, ~15 minutes total.
When sweet potatoes are nearly done cooking, bring the water for the eggs back to a boil. Gently add eggs to boiling water and boil for exactly 7 minutes (this should yield cooked whites and runny yolks so adjust the time if you’d like your eggs cooked differently). When eggs are finished, transfer to a colander and run under cool water.
Divide sweet potatoes between serving bowls. Top with spinach, eggs, avocados, and tomatoes. Sprinkle Everything Bagel Seasoning over top and add hot sauce if you’d like. Enjoy!
