Savory Sweet Potato Fritters with Avocado and Fried Eggs

Fritter: fun to say, fun to make and even more fun to eat. Just grate a sweet potato, add chives and an egg and fry until crispy. Anyone can do it. It’s kind of like making a pancake!

The Toppings:

I top these crispy fritters with a little avocado mash and fried eggs. These heart shaped eggs were made using a little pancake mold. The perfect little breakfast for the table or holidays when breakfast in bed seems appropriate.

Getting that Perfect Egg:

The secret to frying a perfect egg is a hot pan and plenty of butter or olive oil. Putting the egg in before the pan is really hot guarantees sticking and a hard to clean pan. Make life easy, heat the pan for a good two minutes before adding the butter/oil, let that get hot, then add the egg.
