We do daily intermittent fasting by waiting from anywhere around 10:30am to noon before having breakfast. Delaying breakfast means that when it’s time to eat, we’re ready for a big brunch as we’re basically eating breakfast and lunch together.
That means that for us, one recipe serves 3-4 for a very hardy meal. But if you’re a lighter eater, this is a deliciously adequate breakfast (or dinner) for 6.
Another way to adjust it is to add extra eggs. For example, to add two more eggs (for 8 total) makes this an ample breakfast for 4, providing two eggs per plate, plus a generous portion of vegetables.

- 2 large sweet potatoes peeled and cut into chunks

- 3 T. extra virgin olive oil
- Sea salt and black pepper to taste

- 2 Tablespoons crushed kale chips or dried herbs of choice
- PREHEAT oven to 425°F; convection roasting works best if your oven has that.

- MIX In a large bowl: sweet potatoes, purple potatoes, Brussels sprouts, red onion, garlic, onion powder (or seasoned salt), and olive oil until vegetables are well coated. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. If NOT USING KALE CHIPS TOPPING, add fresh or dried herbs of choice here and mix in well.
- SPREAD the sweet potato mixture onto the prepared sheet pan in a single layer without overcrowding.
- ROAST in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. STIR vegetables and continue roasting another 8-10 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are fork tender.
- ADD EGGS: Remove sheet pan from oven and create 6 round, evenly spaced openings among the vegetables. Carefully pour an egg into each opening, keeping the yolk intact. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired, and return pan to the oven.
- BAKE for 6-8 minutes, or until the egg whites are set and the yolks reach the desired level of doneness. Remove sheet pan from oven and garnish with crushed kale chips (if using), and serve immediately with the roasted vegetables. Enjoy!
