Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a wonderful week. As some of you may have noticed, I have been trying out new recipes this month and incorporating different foods into my diet now that I have started to count my macros and become aware of the holes in my diet. That has not only led to some awesome new recipes but a whole new appreciation for food—something I didn’t think was possible and has certainly surprised me! Turns out I don’t eat nearly enough protein that my body needs in order to reach the goals I’ve set, and I consume a few too many fats than I should. All of this is news to me, but good news because that means I can make the proper adjustments!
I am a sucker for anything breakfast, so a lot of my experimentation has been on my morning meals. Some days I am in the mood for something more savory, others more sweet, sometimes both! This week I picked up some spiralized sweet potatoes and figured they would be perfect in a breakfast bake, and so this recipe was born. I whipped this up in my cast iron skillet and was so happy with how it came out. The one thing I will say is that it is 10x better with some sort of an added sauce for some extra flavor. I used hot sauce, but I think it would be amazing with salsa or tomato sauce as well just to give it a little something extra.
Savory Sweet Potato Noodle Breakfast Bake
- 1 lb organic ground turkey
- 1 lb sweet potato noodles
- 3 organic eggs
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1/2 diced organic tomatoes
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 tsp diced garlic
- pepper (to taste)
- salt (to taste)
- hot sauce (optional topping)
- In a cast iron skillet (or large frying pan) heat 2 tbsp olive oil on medium heat and brown ground turkey.
- Add onion and garlic, stirring until browned before adding the sweet potato noodles one handful at a time. These take the longest to cook, so let them sit and heat up for about 5 minutes before adding the next handful to the pan. The noodles should be limp but not mushy.
- Mix in diced tomato, salt and pepper before adding the spinach last, stirring occasionally until wilted.
- With a wooden spoon make 3 spaces to drop in your eggs.Cook for 10 or so minutes depending on the style of egg you prefer. I like sunny side up but you could also scramble them!
- Option to mix in salsa or tomato sauce for added flavor, or plate and top with hot sauce and enjoy!
