Creating a sweet potato and egg bowl is a simple way to mix veggies, proteins, and fats into one filling meal. It’s easy to customize based on what you have in the fridge and can be changed depending on the season.

Using Season Vegetables

The cost and taste of vegetables tend to change with the season.

When something is in season, there is more quantity available; therefore, the cost goes down. This is beneficial not only to your grocery bill but also to your meal planning. You will know ahead of time what is going to be easy to find at the store and what will be more difficult.

Knowing what is in season is also crucial for taste. There is a very distinct shift in taste for certain vegetables when something is in season and out of season. If you are someone who often doesn’t like vegetables, I highly recommend focusing on those that are in season to help your tastebuds power through the meal.

A Flexible Recipe

The Sweet Potato and Egg Bowl recipe listed below is my favorite version to make in the Summer months. However, you can really change it up any time based on what you have in your fridge.

My current bowl version is made with gluten-free veggie sausage, but I’ve made it with bacon, chicken, turkey sausage & regular sausage. Sometimes adding extra ingredients such as kale or spinach can pack in many more vitamins and nutrients for not many extra calories.

Sweet Potato and Egg Bowl

It's easy to mix things around and change it up with what you have in your fridge. For starters the three main ingredients are sausage, eggs and sweet potatoes.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 1


  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Sweet Potato (Spiralized)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Veggie Sausage Patties (My Favorite is MorningStar Farms)
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1/4 cup Goat Cheese Crumbles


  • In your frying pan melt 1 tbsp of coconut oil. While that is melting, spiralize half of a sweet potato (this is my favorite tool for spiralizing).
  • Add the spiralized sweet potato to the coconut oil and let cook on low heat for 10-12 minutes.
  • Cut up the (precooked) sausage and add it into the pan with the sweet potatoes.
  • Move the sweet potatoes and sausage to the side of the pan. Crack two eggs into the empty spot left on the pan. Cook the eggs over easy.
  • Once the eggs are cooked, the sweet potatoes are tender and the sausage is heated up, remove everything from the pan into one big bowl.
  • Top your bowl with goat cheese crumbles and sliced avocado.
