The Recipe: Baked Sweet Potatoes with Bacon and Eggs
Tips and what you will need: (Affiliate links via Amazon) Use LARGE sweet potatoes and SMALL eggs or the eggs will spill over sides. You will need a cookie sheet and parchment paper. I love Maldons Flaked Sea Salt. I buy the tub (it’s a money saver!) My wooden serving board can be found here.
An easy meal for any time! It is important to use large sweet potatoes and small eggs or the eggs won't fit!
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- butter or ghee
- sea salt
- 4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
- 4 small eggs
- freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place foil in bottom of oven to catch potato drippings.
Pierce potatoes with a fork.
Use a paper towel to LIGHTLY coat skin of each potato with butter or olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place potatoes on oven rack and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a fork goes in easily.
While potatoes bake, cook bacon, set on paper towels to drain, chop.
Remove potatoes from oven and place on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet.
Carefully cut in half lengthwise. Use your knife to make slits in the center of each half.
Add as much butter/ghee as you like and mash with a fork. Use the back of a spoon to create a crater in each potato, sprinkle with half of the bacon.
Gently crack an egg into each potato half.
Place back in the oven for 10 minutes. Whites should be solid, yolks soft.
Remove from oven. Sprinkle with sea salt, pepper, the rest of the bacon and chives. Serve.

These look delicious. I can’t eat bacon. I wonder what I could sub for this. (I grow sweet potatoes by the way.)
Just skip it! I do a lot and it’s still delicious!

The MOST amazing sweet potato recipe I have seen ever!
Well thank you!
Decided to change my way of eating. Real, unprocessed organic food. No wheat and no dairy. This just sounds so right for me just now.
Fabulous! Good luck on your real food journey!
Tried this without bacon this morning. YUM!
Oh Wow! That looks amazing! An Egg with Bacon on it on top of a sweet potato, amazing! I never would have even thought of it!
I’m a little nervous to try the egg part, but everything you make is always so good, that I’d better just bite the bullet and give it a try!
Looks yummy, as always!! Thanks 🙂
Love this idea for breakfast- I’m definitely going to try it.
What size eggs & sweet potatoes are you using? Because I couldn’t get the eggs inside the potatoes at ALL, wound up with egg everywhere even after scraping out all the potato flesh. And I used regular eggs and good-sized sweet potatoes.
Hi josh. I use large sweet potatoes and regular eggs. I am wondering if you didn’t make the “well” in the potato big enough? I use my fork to really mash the potato and then create s good sized well for the egg. In the “tips” section I mention that a too small potato will make the egg spill over the side. I use the biggest potatoes I can find.
Adding an egg makes everything more delicious! I love sweet potatoes but I rarely bake them because it takes so long. This looks worth the wait, though.
I have always loved twice baked potatoes but never thought about having a twice baked sweet potato. I love sweet potato fries so with that being said, I am going to try this and am sure I will really enjoy it. Thanks for sharing I also will be following you on pinterest.
These look so delicious! I just discovered my love for sweet potatoes this year and I imagine adding bacon and eggs could only intensify that love 🙂

This was our breakfast and it was delish!
I had one issue and that’s because I baked the sweet potatoes last night (while the oven was already on). I did everything but add the eggs last night. This morning I took them out of the fridge to sit while the oven heated and added the egg. Baked them for 10 min but the egg white wasn’t yet white, so I put them in for a few more minutes. As it turned out the yoke wasn’t runny. Still good though. I think the cold potato was the culprit. Next time, and there will be a next time because they were really good, I’ll do it all in one fell swoop and plan for brunch rather than 7:00 breakfast! Thanks for the recipe!
Hi Terri! I am glad you liked them. Yes, the cold potato was the culprit for sure. If you ever pre-cook the potatoes again, I would pop them in the oven or microwave to get them nice and hot first, then continue as recommended in the recipe. Thanks for commenting!
This looks so good! What an easy way to make this into a savory gluten and dairy free breakfast!
Thanks for sharing! What a great breakfast meal prep! You can just make an egg and reheat the potatoes!
Sweet potatoes are my favorites. It is actually a quick snack because it really doesn’t need anything to go with. Let alone is tasty
