Egg in a Sweet Potato Pocket

Isn’t this egg nested in a sweet potato clever? I can’t take credit for the idea though, I read about it on thedailybalance.com. First, you bake a sweet potato and carve out the inside. Then, you crack a fresh egg in the hole, and bake in a dish at 375F for 20-30 minutes. It’s so easy! This could be a quick weeknight dinner, or you could add some shredded cheese and herbs for a fancier Sunday brunch.

Since I tried this a few times, I do have some practical tips. First, I would recommend you start with a large potato. I tend to pick smaller potatoes from the bin, and the egg white poured over the edges. Second, be very careful when cutting the potato because if you happen to slice through, the egg white will leak out the bottom. And finally, remember that you can bake the potato on the weekend when you have more time, and then cook the egg whenever you are ready for a meal. Have fun with this one!
