Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Gorgonzola and Baked Eggs

Some recipes are born from a love of creating a few of my recipes simpler. I like to whip up quiche or frittata however typically I wish to preserve issues easy (actually easy). This baked egg dish is about as straightforward because it will get, when you get fast at dicing.

The Candy Potatoes

Don’t throw this recipe out if you happen to don’t like candy potatoes. It’s actually the idea of baked eggs that I’d suggest. Any vegetable that goes properly with baked eggs, and might be roasted, is a chance right here.

In the course of the winter months, attempt completely different kinds of squash. In the course of the spring, roasted asparagus is a pleasant contact (however I’d skip the primary roasting step- nobody likes mushy asparagus). And eventually, in summer season, roasted candy corn and peppers rounds out the yr. You would additionally combine two recipes and use one thing alongside the strains of this sunchoke hash.


There are a number of objects you can inform I really like, simply by the quantity I exploit them in recipes. Shallots are on the prime of the listing. Certain, they’re might be extra of a ache to prep however the taste will get me each time. It’s the proper mixture of candy and savory, all with a small trace of garlic.

After all, you’ll be able to go along with one thing a bit extra ahead. Attempt a little bit of minced garlic added in with the candy potatoes. In the course of the spring months, inexperienced garlic can even add a pleasant taste (and a little bit of coloration distinction!) Or, go along with the stable stand-by of minced yellow onion.

Vegan (a whole overhaul)

For nearly each recipe I give, I can nearly at all times flip it vegan. That’s, nonetheless, a bit tougher when baked eggs are the star of the present. I’d say if you happen to’re bent on doing one thing related, roast the candy potatoes and switch it right into a tofu scramble. Not the identical however nonetheless scrumptious.

Spicy Baked Eggs

Lastly, change up the herbs. I’ve made this with a bit extra savory parts and it’s scrumptious. Coat the candy potatoes in a little bit of curry powder, berbere spice, or a easy mixture of cumin/coriander. It takes a bit of remodeling the herbs however the finish egg bake is scrumptious.
