Baked Egg & Asparagus Sweet Potato Recipe

Personally, I think these colorful Baked Egg & Asparagus Sweet Potatoes are the perfect dish to serve for a small, intimate brunch with friends and family. Serve it alongside a side salad topped with this zesty Citrus Salad Dressing Vinaigrette and bottomless mimosas! 

What’s great about them is that you can prep them ahead of time and simply pop them into the oven for 20 minutes to bake the eggs once everyone has arrived. 

Ready to make them? Let’s start with the ingredients:

Baked Egg & Asparagus Sweet Potato Recipe Ingredients:

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parsley

How to Bake Sweet Potatoes

Start by prepping your sweet potatoes. Scrub the skins, dry them, then use a fork to puncture the sweet potatoes all over to release steam while baking. Then bake for 45 minutes at 400 degrees F or until tender. 

In a hurry? Wash, dry, and puncture the sweet potatoes, then microwave on high for 7-8 minutes or until tender.

Once cooked, use a knife to slice into the sweet potato lengthwise, using caution to not slice all the way through. Then push the two ends towards each other in order to force the sweet potato “open” to create a pocket for the stuffing.

While you’re cooking your sweet potatoes, roast the asparagus. First preheat your oven to 400F, then clean your asparagus stalks. Next, place the stalks on a baking sheet, drizzle them with 1-2 TB of olive oil and bake for bake 10 minutes. 

Once your sweet potatoes are done baking and asparagus is done roasting, it’s time to assemble the stuffed sweet potatoes and bake the eggs.

Preheat your oven to 350F.

After you’ve pushed open the sweet potatoes to form a “pocket”, line the outsides of the pocket with sliced radishes – making sure the pink edges show at the top. Next, lay 2-3 stalks of roasted asparagus across the sweet potato. Then, crack an egg into the sweet potato pocket, add a sprinkle of salt and pepper and place into your oven on the top shelf under the broiler for 20-25 minutes or until the egg whites are no longer translucent. 

Remove the stuffed sweet potatoes from the oven and sprinkle with parsley for garnish.

Serve and enjoy!
