Sweet Potato Wedges and Eggs

TGIF!  What are you making for breakfast tomorrow?  What…  It’s a legit question.  I’m sure that I’m not the only one who plans ahead of time, especially when it comes to food.

Sweet Potatoes and Eggs03

I was in the mood for eggs and some sort of sweet potato side dish.  I just realized that I think I start every breakfast post with “I was craving… so here it is.”  Well, my blog is a diary of my life so that’s how it goes around here.  🙂

I opted for sweet potato wedges that are seasoned with salt and pepper.  Yup, it’s nothing fancy but it sure is tasty.  If you want to kick it up a notch then feel free to make them spicy or add whatever herbs you like.

This breakfast is a bit of a splurge for me (if you compare it to my weekday yogurt and granola), but I didn’t go overboard today.  These sweet potato wedges are baked and not fried!  I coated them in a little bit of olive oil which helps to give them a crunchy outside.  Don’t forget the cornstarch.  I swear that’s what gets them all crispy.

A word to the wise…  the egg takes only a few minutes to fry up but the sweet potato wedges take a bit of time to bake so try to plan accordingly.  Meaning, if you wake up ready to eat your arm then you may want to save this for another day.

I hate to state the obvious…  but I will anyway.  You can skip the eggs and make these wedges  for an appetizer or side dish.  Just saying.  😉

So what are you making for breakfast this weekend?

Sweet Potato Wedges and Eggs Recipe
(Makes 2 servings)


  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 to 4 eggs (Basically, however many you want.)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with a silicon mat or tin foil.  (They tend to stick to either foil or the pan due to the natural sugars in the sweet potatoes, so if you own a silicon mat I highly recommend it for this one.  If you don’t, you may want to spray down the foil with cooking spray.)
  3. Peel the sweet potato.  Cut it into wedges.  If they are really long, cut them in half to make shorter wedges.
  4. Toss the sweet potato wedges in corn starch.  The goal is to lightly coat them.
  5. Toss the sweet potato wedges in oil.  (Don’t accidentally reverse steps 4 and 5 or you’ll end up with way too much corn starch.)
  6. Season the sweet potato wedges with salt and pepper.
  7. Lay the sweet potato wedges in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake them for about 50 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.  Flip the sweet potato wedges about half way through the baking time.
  9. When you take them out of the oven, use salt and pepper again if you want.
  10. Cook the eggs how ever you like.
  11. Serve the eggs with the baked sweet potato wedges.
