Savory Sweet Potato Benedict

I’m teaming up with Eggland’s Best to bring you one of my favorite recipes to date. I’m that girl that goes to brunch and orders whatever kind of benedict is on the menu. I love them because they’re typically a “healthier” choice than some other brunch items. I came up with this recipe because I was craving a benedict one day but didn’t have any bread in the house. How the?! So I had to get creative. I took to Instagram and did a story of me “trying” to make this recipe and praying it worked out (since I was live and all). To my luck, it turned out great!

 

 

This dish is GREAT for those days that you want brunch, but you also don’t want to leave your house!  It’s made with ingredients that you probably already have sitting around, but it tastes like something you’d eat at the fanciest of restaurants. The best part? It has nothing but whole ingredients so you can enjoy it guilt-free!

 

 

Don’t be afraid to get your hands in there with these sweet potato cakes! The more you mix it, the better they’ll be!

 

 

Ingredients

1 large sweet potato, shredded

2 Eggland’s Best eggs (for sweet potatoes)

1/4 cup shredded cheese

1tsp garlic powder

1tsp Italian seasoning

Salt and pepper to taste

2 Ham slices

1Eggland’s Best egg (for poaching)

1 Tbsp Turmeric Powder

1 Scallion, sliced

Directions

Bring a pot of water to boil with the turmeric powder. Mix sweet potato, 2 eggs, cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper together in a bowl. I like to mix it with my hands but feel free to use a few spoons to do it if you don’t like to get messy. Heat a pan with a little oil over medium-high heat. Take a handful of the sweet potato mixture and put it on the pan. Flatten it with your hands kind of like a pancake. Cook on that side until brown then flip it. Cook until done. Slowly crack an egg into the boiling turmeric water. Cook for one minute then remove with slotted spoon. To assemble, put a couple of the sweet potato patties on a plate and top with ham, poached egg, and sliced scallions.

One of the reasons I used Eggland’s Best eggs in this recipe is because of their superior nutrition! Each egg has only 60 calories and more than double the Omega-3’s as ordinary eggs. Not only that – they have 10x more Vitamin E and 6x more Vitamin D! There is a long list of other reasons why Eggland’s Best is America’s #1 egg!
