I bet the Pioneer Woman wasn’t thinking clean carbs and lean protein when she made these little egg hash brown nests, but that’s exactly what they are. With a little tweak by your truly of course 🙂
Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Egg Muffins – The perfect Grab-and-go breakfast
I love this recipe because it’s super simple and you can season it any way you like, or not at all! Want some ideas?
- Make it Indian-inspired – add two tablespoons of garam masala and 1 tablespoon of turmeric
- Make it Italian Inspired – Add a tablespoon of Italian spice mix and 1/2 a cup of pasta sauce and swap the cheddar for mozzarella.
- Make it All-American – Crumble some pre-cooked bacon on the eggs before you pop them back in the oven (see instructions below)
Or, you can leave them as-is with a simple salt and pepper mixture. They are tasty either way.

- Non-stick pray
