Twice Baked Sweet Potato Recipe Perfect for Breakfast

All you really need for this twice baked sweet potato recipe is a cooked sweet potato, some crumbled bacon, eggs, and green onions. You will get two servings per sweet potato so you can either share or set one in the fridge for the next day. Make sure you make this on a non-stick surface…I tried foil and it wasn’t very easy to get off the pan! You can also add a dollop of sour cream if you are feeling particularly decadent.

  1. That looks so good! I have been slacking with my healthy eating habits too. I also baked way too many Christmas cookies this year. Happy New Year
    • I have SO many Christmas cookies left still! Guess I just have to keep eating them, right? At least until the new year rolls around!
  2. This sounds like a great breakfast I never thought about sweet potatoes for breakfast like this!! Christmas cookies are evil for temptation this time of year. I always try to send extras with guests when they leave.
  3. That is fantastic! I love the egg in the middle. This is going on my to make list.
  4. Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods. Twice baked with and egg and bacon is like a breakfast dream come true. I can't wait to get to the market this week, pick up some sweet potatoes and try this recipe!
  5. I love sweet potatoes for breakfast, but I usually make sweet potato hash with eggs. This would be a nice change, I will give it a try.
