Servings: 4



  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed 
  • About 6 cups spinach 
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • *Optional* for serving hot sauce 


  • Preheat the oven to 210°C/425°F. 
  • Wash and dry the sweet potatoes and poke them with a fork. Wrap each one with foil and place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 40 minutes to an hour until tender.
  • Slice the potatoes in half and use a spoon to scrape out the inner flesh, making sure to leave at least a ¼-inch (6 mm) thick border on each side, saving the scooped-out potato parts to use for side dishes.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan set over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes​.
  • Add the spinach, turn the heat to low, cover, and cook, until the spinach is very soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Assemble the boats:

  • Reduce oven heat to 200°C/ 400°F.
  • Fill each of the potatoes with a few tablespoons of the spinach filling.
  • Carefully crack one egg inside of each sweet potato half, keeping the yolk intact. I find it easier to break the egg into a small bowl and then pour it into the hole.
  • Sprinkle around the egg with cheese and season each potato with salt and pepper.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the eggs are cooked to your liking, about 8-10 minutes. (Longer if you want the yolk cooked hard.)
  • Serve and enjoy immediately.
