recipe notes and tips

  • Use a preheated oven.
  • When baking the potatoes the first time, cover them in foil. This will just speed up the process.
  • We highly recommend the baking process for the fluffiest and softest potatoes. But if you simply don’t have time, you may bake the potatoes in the microwave.
  • Allow the potatoes to cool slightly after the first bake and before slicing them open.
  • Ideally, shred your own cheese. Pre shredded cheese contains caking agents which means it doesn’t melt as well. But feel free to use pre-shredded if that’s what you have on hand – still tastes great!
  • Garnish with chives or whichever herbs you wish!

What to serve with these Breakfast Baked Sweet Potatoes

These potatoes are great on their own, they’re super hearty! But you can certainly serve this up topped with some sour cream, pecans, or with a side of fruit, for that sweet/ savory morning hit

Can I make these ahead of time?

To make ahead of time, you can follow all the steps up until adding the eggs and cheese then refrigerate until needed. Bake the eggs and cheese in the potatoes when ready to serve.

Storing baked sweet potatoes

It’s best to serve the full recipe straight away but if you want to store your potatoes after the first bake (prior to loading them), storage is fairly simple. Put your cooked sweet potatoes in a shallow container or ziplock bag and place them in the refrigerator. Cooked sweet potatoes can last in the fridge for 3 to 5 days.

  • Once done, remove from the oven and allow to cool for a bit. Cut the potatoes in half lengthways.
  • Use a fork to fluff the inside of the potatoes, making sure you leave the skin intact. Season with salt and pepper to your taste, add half of the cheese, and crack the eggs in.
  • Top with remaining cheese and transfer to the preheated oven. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until egg whites are set.
  • Garnish with chives and serve immediately.
