The past few times I’ve went out for brunch with friends, I’ve ordered the baked eggs. Usually, I order something predictable, like an omelette or a salad.
That’s not to say that I wouldn’t love to swim in pancakes, but, a girl’s got to stay focused, ya know?
The only issue with baked eggs? I’m never satisfied. Just eating eggs never fills me up – and I hate having to compensate with the table bread. I just know myself and if I want to avoid being a terrorizing hangry person later, I need to fuel myself at brunch.
So, enter Monday. I was sitting, trying to figure out what I was going to post on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and I was all, “pork fried spiralized rice!” for some reason.
Then, I was deleting pictures on my iPhone to post something on Instagram (dang memory settings!) and I noticed a pattern: Instagram shots of my brunch – all baked eggs:
Anyway, let’s get back to the “I’m not satisfied after I have baked eggs” dilemma. As I was flipping through these photos, it came to me – why not bake the eggs on top of some healthy, clean-eating friendly spiralized veggies?
What better way to fill yourself up than with sweet potato noodles – especially on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving?
So, if you’re like every other American on Thanksgiving and have bought 85 sweet potatoes for your feast and have unused ones, you’re going to want to make this for a post-Thanksgiving healthy brunch or, enjoy it the morning of, while you’re peeling those sweet potatoes.
The recipe is for single-serving portions, so if you want to have two eggs, just used a larger ramekin or baking dish and make this recipe for 2-3 large servings.
The day after Thanksgiving, you tend to want something light, hence the single-serving nature of this recipe. This recipe also has a spicy Spanish-influenced flavor to it with paprika, jalapeño, cilantro and onions. The flavor from the spices and the tomatoes is sensational and the sweet potato noodles are fun to eat for breakfast.
Now, if I could only tell those New York City brunch spots to start baking sweet potato noodles into the bottom of their baked eggs. Do you think they’d listen?
