Who needs “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” when you can have it at home?! Healthy, delicious, and really easy, this is a great way to start your day. Caution: may induce whistling, chipper moods, or generalized morning cheer. Do not eat in conjunction with any other uppers.
1 sweet potato, chopped into small cubes
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp dry thyme
2-3 eggs, whisked in a bowl to break up the yolks
1 scallion, chopped, whites and greens separated
1 clove garlic, grated or finely chopped
1 small tomato, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp butter
salt & pepper to taste
Add 1 tbsp of butter to a small skillet over medium heat. Once the butter melts, add the sweet potatoes and salt/pepper. Cook for about 5 min, then add the garlic and thyme, and mix. Cook for about 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are tender and cooked through, and nicely browned. Remove on to a plate, and drizzle with 1 tbsp maple syrup.
Add the 2nd tbsp of butter to the pan, and add the chopped scallion whites, and the tomato. Season with salt and pepper, and saute for ~3min. Add the beaten eggs, season, and lightly move the eggs from the edge of the pan inward toward the center with your spatula. This allows more uncooked egg to hit the pan, and also helps create larger lumps when you scramble them. Let the eggs cook until the bottom side is firm, about 2 minutes, and then begin to break up with your spatula and flip so the top side can cook.
Spoon on top of the sweet potatoes, sprinkle with the chopped scallion greens, and drizzle with the remaining maple syrup.
