  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup egg whites, divided
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Cut the ends off your sweet potato. Place in spiralizer and spiralize using the smallest noodle shape. Trim the noodles so they are not too long.
  2. Heat a medium-sized sauté pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Once hot add sweet potatoes, garlic powder, and salt and pepper and cook for 3-5 minutes until soft. Once done place in a bowl.
  3. Turn heat down to medium-low and add 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil. Add half the sweet potato mixture and form into a nest type shape with a hole in the middle, leaving room for the egg. Pour 2 tablespoons egg whites on sweet potatoes. Add egg in the middle and cook for 4-8 minutes, or until cooked to your preference.
  4. Repeat step 3 for the remaining mixture and egg.*
  5. Serve with sides of choice. Enjoy!
