  • 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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Repeat step 3 for the remaining mixture and egg.*
  • Serve with sides of choice. Enjoy!



*If your pan is large enough, you can make both egg nests in one step.
