  1. Preheat oven to 400F / 204C.
  2. Toss sweet potatoes with cornstarch until evenly coated. Then add oil, paprika, and salt and toss through again. Spread out onto your darkest colored sheet pan for best browning (or line a lighter sheet pan with parchment paper) and arrange into one even layer. Avoid overcrowding for crispiest results - you might want to spread out across two sheet pans. Roast for 15 minutes and then bump temperature up to 475F / 246C. Shake and rotate pans and roast for another 10 to 12 minutes at higher temperature, until golden and crispy.
  3. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Add butter and then green onions to melted butter. Saute until softened, ~2 minutes.
  4. Pour in whisked eggs and lightly scramble until you get the consistency you like.
  5. Heat up tortillas according to package instructions.
  6. Fold in ham and toss until warmed through.
  7. Spoon eggs, ham, and sour cream into tortillas. Serve with half the sweet potatoes (reserve other half for tomorrow night’s dinner).
