Breakfasts Brunch Other Savoury Sunday Brunch at home Vegetarian

Sweet Potato Rosti w/ a fried egg and greens

By now you should know how much I adore breakfast. If you’re new, well I just adore breakfast. I try to mix breakfast up because when I try something new it makes my day just that little bit brighter. 

This meal was extremely nutritious and kept me full of energy all morning until 1.30pm. It was fairly easy to make and I kept exclaiming ‘ohhhh yum’ out loud.. lucky I was home alone.

Sweet Potato Rosti w/ Fried Egg and Greens         Serves 1

Ingredients:  2 eggs, 1 small – medium sized sweet potato peeled and grated, handful of spinach, 1 onion and salt and pepper. I also added red capsicum


  1. Chop the onion into half moons, heat oil in a fry pan over a medium heat. When oil is hot, add the onions and cook for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant. 
  2. Add the grated sweet potato and mix with the onion for 3-4 minutes. 
  3. Once sweet potato has been on a medium heat for 4 minutes, reduce to the lowest heat and get started on your eggs, still stirring the sweet potato occasionally. 
  4. Throw in the bunch of spinach on top of the sweet potato for the last minute of low heat if you want it to wilt slightly. If you want fresh, add at end. 
  5. Once eggs have been fried, place the base of the sweet potato on the plate, season with salt and pepper and top with the egg! Enjoy

You could go one step further and make sweet potato hash browns.. that would require 1 egg and 1 tbsp of flour with the sweet potato, then shallow fry until golden. YUM. I should have made that, dammit.

  13. Give it a go and let me know if they like it! It’s a great way to sneak it into a breakfast.

  14. I’ve never made rosti, I think it’s time!

  15. I love the idea of sweet potato rosti. A mouthwatering dish! I could have this for lunch as well 🙂

  16. That does look very delicious. I’m going to try it with the hash browns (except I’ll have to use a gluten-free flour)…as my kids are not big fans of sweet potato normally, but I think they’d go for it fried!

  17. Oh so easy. I was never a morning person but if I find I make the effort to make something quick but nice it makes it easier.

  18. I love eggs so I make them a lot. By the name of your blog I assume you do too. Thanks Shelley!

  19. This looks AMAZING! Your eggs are cooked so perfectly 🙂 Loving your blog!

  20. Yum. So easy. I am not a morning person but I reckon I might be able to cope with this.

  21. This could be breakfast for dinner for sure, I like your style. It’s so quick to throw together, too.

  22. This looks so delicious! I’m usually not in the mood to munch much in the morning, but I could see making this for “breakfast for dinner” instead.

  23. I made this recipe again but made the grated sweet potato into a hash brown. I mixed 1 egg and a tbsp of flour then shallow fried it…. even better!!!

  24. This looks so delicious!
    You’ve inspired me to try either your recipe or the hash browns this weekend (fried sweet potato, I mean, how could it not be good).
