Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl


How did it take me this long to try sweet potatoes for breakfast? This is a great way to change it up from oatmeal or cereal, and making a big batch of sweet potato ahead of time makes this a super easy, no-cook, grab-and-go breakfast option. I imagine this would also be a great option for camping or travel.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and put one or more sweet potatoes in the oven on a baking sheet or dish. Cook until soft, 30-45 minutes. That’s how to cook a sweet potato, it’s the easiest thing in the world. I like to batch bake sweet potatoes and have them cooked and ready in the fridge.
  2. Weigh out your sweet potato and add all of your yummy toppings!
