Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

Earlier this week, I made a batch of Cajun Pumpkin Seeds. I wondered this morning if it would be delicious as a savory breakfast topping? I wanted to keep it simple and saw some leftover mashed sweet potato, vegan butter and I always have eggs in my fridge.  Once all the ingredients were in front of me, I knew I had to make a sweet potato breakfast bowl.  It was a little bowl of comfort food for me.

Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl Recipe


  • 1 Egg
  • 2 TBS of Cajun Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1/2 cup of Mashed Sweet Potato
  • 1 Tsp of Butter or Coconut Oil



This dish works well with any style egg or without eggs! 
However, I love a soft poached egg

How to Poach an Egg, by Food Network
Heat the water: Add enough water to come 1 inch up the side of a narrow, deep 2-quart saucier. Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 2 teaspoons white vinegar and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Meanwhile, crack 1 very fresh cold large egg into a custard cup or small ramekin. Use the handle of a spatula or spoon to quickly stir the water in one direction until it’s all smoothly spinning around.

TIP: Use this whirlpool method when poaching a single serving (one or two eggs). For bigger batches, heat the water, salt and vinegar in a 12-inch nonstick skillet and do not stir.

Add the egg: Carefully drop the egg into the center of the whirlpool. The swirling water will help prevent the egg white from “feathering,” or spreading out in the pan.

Let it poach: Turn off the heat, cover the pan and set your timer for 5 minutes. Don’t peek, poke, stir or accost the egg in any way.

Lift it out: Remove the egg with a slotted spoon and serve immediately.


  1. Warm up the mashed sweet potato mash (your choice of microwave, stove top or oven).
  2. Top with the poached egg (prepared as directions above).
  3. Place a tsp of butter to melt over the egg.
  4. Sprinkle the Cajun pumpkin seeds over the top of the bowl.
  5. Dig in and enjoy!
