You’ll love kicking off your day with this fun flavor explosion. You’ll also love getting in a serving of veggies first thing in the morning. Simply bake the sweet potato the night before. Not only is this breakfast dish pleasing to your eyes, it’s good for your eyes, too, since sweet potato provides a boost of beta-carotene, an eye friendly nutrient.

Time saver:

  • If you don’t have cooked sweet potato on hand, top a large slice of whole-grain sourdough bread.

Servings: 2 Print
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes


  • 2 lengthwise slices (about 1 ⁄3-inch thick) baked sweet potato with peel
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil or sunflower oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 medium avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon flaked sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons store-bought salsa verde
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives or chopped cilantro
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Supercharger: 2 small radishes, sliced extra-thin (optional)


  1. Heat the sweet potato slices in a toaster or toaster oven, or broil in the oven, until heated through and slightly crisped (cooking time varies).

    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large stick-resistant skillet over high heat. Crack in the eggs and fry until they reach the desired doneness.

    Top each sweet potato toast with the avocado and sprinkle with salt. Then top each toast with a fried egg, salsa verde, chives, and radish slices (if using), and season with several grinds of pepper.
