What’s better then a combination of roasted sweet potatoes, eggs, avocado and sautéed greens at breakfast? I don’t think there is one! This Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl makes for a balanced meal that’s perfect to prep for an easy breakfast during the week too. It’s packed with protein and full of flavor too.

If you’re looking for a new way to switch up breakfast, these Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowls are for you! This is one of my favorite breakfast bowls, along with my savory breakfast bowl and breakfast hash. Not only are they perfect to prep ahead of the week, but they will keep you satisfied all morning long.

These bowls are packed with flavor and full of nourishing foods that will leave you feeling good too. I make sure to start my day with a nourishing breakfast to start the day off right and I aim for a breakfast that includes protein to keep me feeling full too!

The best part about these bowls is everything can be prepped ahead of time! You can roast a batch of sweet potatoes, easily prepare a jar of pickled onions, and make as many hard boiled eggs as you want. If you want to prepare your bowls ahead of time, try to keep them in sealed glass containers in the fridge for easy access and storage.

What you need for Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

  • Sweet Potato – Leave the skin on the sweet potatoes for extra fiber and flavor. If you prefer not to use sweet potatoes (or don’t have them) russet potatoes go well in this bowl too!
  • Eggs – Eggs add satisfying protein to this breakfast bowl. The directions are for hard-boiled, but if you prefer softer eggs, just reduce the boiling time from 12 minutes to 8 minutes.
  • Spinach – Fresh spinach works best, but if you only have frozen, thaw and squeeze out any excess moisture before heating to keep the spinach from making the bowl soggy.
  • Avocado – Adds heart-healthy fat that will keep you full all morning long!
  • Pickled onions – Once you try them, you’ll want to put them on everything!
  • Trader Joe’s Ajika Georgian Seasoning Blend – This seasoning is inspired by a staple in the Republic of Georgia. It’s got a little heat, garlic and an aromatic mix of coriander, fenugreek, and marigold petals. If you can’t find this, use another savory and spicy seasoning of choice.
  • Sea salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Cilantro
  • Red Pepper Flakes
