Did you know that February is National Sweet Potato Month? I didn’t either until Karla from Foodologie tipped me off to this fact. Since this blog is named after my love for sweet potatoes, I thought I’d squeak in a few sweet potato dishes before February is over. Starting with this easy weeknight dinner.
The Englishman and I like to meal plan each week, and 99% of the time one of our weeknight dinners involves eggs. I’m a huge brinner (breakfast for dinner) fan, so I look forward to those evenings. One of my all time favorite ways to eat eggs is poached over some roasted sweet potatoes.
I first tried the egg and sweet potato combo about a year ago, and ever since then I’ve been hooked. It’s such a simple dish and the perfect easy weeknight dinner. Just roast some sweet potatoes, boil some vegetables and top with a couple of poached eggs (and bacon). Simple, yet perfect.
While roasting sweet potatoes can be somewhat time-consuming, I’ve found that if you boil them for about 8 minutes and then put them in the oven it helps to speed up the cooking process.
If you are looking for a healthy easy weeknight dinner, then this can’t be beat.
