Prosciutto Sweet Potato Breakfast Nests 

We are all busy, right? And we all want to find a way to still make healthy choices despite a loaded schedule. Making good choices in the morning can help you stay more alert and engaged throughout the day. There’s nothing better than a healthy, delicious and satisfying breakfast that not only tastes great, but also leaves you energized all morning. I’m talking about those breakfasts where you don’t immediately feel like a hobbit wanting second breakfast; those breakfasts were you really kill it at work and don’t feel tired or hungry until lunch. For me, that means a combination of a little protein and a bit of fiber. These Prosciutto Sweet Potato Breakfast Nests  are a perfect fit, especially for early and rushed mornings.

I love several thing about this portable breakfast nest: good complex carbs, tons of protein, decadent but still healthy, a cute little name… and did i mention portable? These little guys are great because you make them ahead of time and grab and go each morning. Heck – they are even good for a 3pm snack (I may or may not have had a lots of 3 pm snacks after baking these).

Bake them, freeze them or store them in the fridge, and just heat them up whenever you’re hungry and also on the go. I picture eating these in the car/train/bus on the way to work. I’ll also eat them when I’m starving but it’s only 3pm and it’s not quite dinner time.

— Prosciutto Sweet potato Breakfast Nests Recipe —

Ingredients: 

  • oil to grease the cupcake pan (I used avocado oil)
  • prosciutto, 8 oz
  • spiralized sweet potato, 3 cups
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • avocado oil, 1 tsp + 1 tsp (can sub EVOO)
  • herbs de Provence, 1/4 tsp
  • eggs, medium, 12
  • pepper

Tools: 

  • cupcake pan
  • oven

Directions:

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • lightly grease the cupcake pan with oil, just enough so that the breakfast nests do not stick
  • wrap prosciutto around the inside of the cupcake tin, which then forms a little holder for the rest of the yumminess
  • mix sweet potato noodles, lemon juice, oil and herbs together
  • fill the prosciutto-lined cupcake holes with the sweet potato mix, filling them up to about halfway full
  • bake for 15 minutes, then remove from oven
  • crack an egg atop each nest
  • optionally, crack fresh pepper on top of the eggs to taste
  • bake the nests for another 15-17 minutes or until eggs set
  • serve and enjoy!

  2. sounds delicious! I have hens which make for plenty of eggs around. Always looking for new ways to use them.

    1. That’s awesome! I bet these would be so good with freshly laid eggs. 🙂
