Power Breakfast for One

Eating alone just is not that fun, but I like to eat right so I have to continue to cook even if I am alone for a few days. To keep this one short and simple, I would love to share one of my breakfasts with you. This 3 ingredient breakfast should take you no longer than 7 to 10 minutes, and will keep you full and energetic for hours.

  • Sweet Potato, about 2 inches of a 2 inch diameter one
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices of your favorite bacon

I love our cast iron pan, so I fried up the bacon strips for a minute on each side, reduced the heat to medium-high and moved the strips to the side. I grated the sweet potato just like you grew up grating potatoes for your hash browns. Mash the grated sweet potato firmly into a nice flat patty, and with a spatula place in the middle of your pan, gently pushing down on it after a minute. You can salt it lightly if you want, I chose not to because I already have my bacon. Flip it carefully and cook for another minute or so, or until golden like in the picture. Lift out the bacon and the sweet potato hash patty and plate. Crack your egg into the pan and fry up for a minute on each side. I added some fresh cracked black pepper.

I am showing the egg and hash patty separately, but my favorite way of eating this breakfast is to place the over easy egg onto the sweet potato hash patty and savoring each mouth-watering bite as the yolk breaks and oozes all over the patty. The sweetness of the potato and the egg along with bites of crispy bacon in between is divine. A must try. Yumm! Enjoy! Jo

    Hi Josephine! Henry, too!

    Jackie here! I saw you guys at Rozbicki’s recently and gobbled all your fabulous cocoa treats. I am finally getting to check out your website. It’s great, love the Thanksgiving mango/squash combo. Think I’ll try that. Josephine, how’s the kitty (remember I’m the fellow kitty-freak)? Anyway, thanks for sharing your recipes, can’t wait to add them into our menu. Have a nice Thanksgiving!!


    1. Hi Jackie! So nice to reconnect, especially with a fellow kitty lover :-). That mango-squash dish rocks, it’s a little different, but it will help you bring out other flavors beautifully. I am planning my menu, and will be sharing it shortly. Please stay connected jo@svendblad.com. Have a terrific Thanksgiving and a huge hug from Henry, I and Tiger!


  2. What brand of bacon do you buy?


    1. Hi, we buy Wellshire Farms, usually thick cut. Whole Foods has it. J
