Hearty Breakfast with Sweet Potatoes and Eggs

This Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet is a hearty breakfast that’s quick, easy and my favorite go-to meal. The best part about this sweet and savory combination is that the entire recipe goes down in just one skillet!

Sweet Potato Skillet Serving Sizes

I made my sweet potato skillet to serve just one in a baby 7-inch skillet. For two servings, double the recipe and go up a pan size. For three servings, triple the recipe and so on and so on. You get it, right? 🙂


I generally avoid cooking because I hate how long it take. If the cooking process isn’t quick and painless, I’ll probably just let Daniel make it. Which is why I avoided potatoes for so long. Sweet potatoes take forever to cook in the oven but when I discovered one simple step to cutting my cooking time in half, baking potatoes is no longer so daunting. My secret to keeping this sweet potato skillet under 10 minutes is to precook the chopped sweet potatoes in the microwave first. I like to microwave them for 2-3 minutes on high until soft. Doing this will reduce your cooking time tremendously [insert hands up emoji].

If you are looking for a filling, super easy and delicious gluten-free and paleo breakfast then this sweet potato skillet with spinach and egg is everything you’ve ever wanted.

Healthy Apple Cinnamon Ricotta Pancakes

Healthy Apple Cinnamon Ricotta Pancakes

 

Healthy Apple Cinnamon Ricotta Pancakes are packed with fresh apples and ricotta cheese making these a perfect breakfast treat.


I’ve been in my new apartment for a month now and I still have yet to set off the smoke alarms. Yay. Looking back on making these pancakes, I still can’t believe I made it through the morning without waking up my neighbors. I’m an oven pro but when it comes to the stove, I’m known for burning things but these apple pancakes have no burn marks in sight!

I bought two giant bags of apples last weekend and I’ve been brainstorming apple treats all week. I woke up this morning and immediately wanted pancakes. So of course I took my craving as an opportunity to use up some of my gala apples.

I have a hard time getting enough protein into my diet so I added a scoop of PEScience Snickerdoodle protein powder into these pancakes. You can get 30% off all PEScience products on their website www.pescience.com when you use my code PBCHOCO at checkout.
