Baked Eggs With Swiss Chard & Sweet Potato

Last night I was craving some sort of breakfast for dinner, so I made a single serving of baked eggs and had a happy little night to myself. I don’t bake eggs often, and forgot how good it was! It’s so easy too, you just saute a bunch of stuff, crack an egg or two on top, and pop it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. I think next time I might make some sort of light pesto or sriracha sauce to drizzle on top. YUM.

Ingredients (serves one)
1 small sweet potato, peeled and sliced
3 large Swiss chard leaves, washed and chopped well
1 shallot, chopped
Small handful cherry tomatoes, halved
1 small carrot, peeled into strips
1/4 cup feta cheese
4 tablespoons half & half
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Olive oil
1 egg (or more if you like!)
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat some olive oil in a pan and add the sweet potato slices. Cook until fork tender. Remove from pan and set aside. In the same pan, add the shallots and Swiss chard, cooking until the greens are wilted. Toss the sweet potato back in, along with the carrots, tomatoes, paprika, and half & half. Season with salt and pepper, and cook for another minute or so. Place the mixture in a small oven safe dish and top with feta cheese. Crack an egg on top, and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the egg has cooked to your liking. Enjoy!
