Egg and Sweet Potato Breakfast Scramble

Egg and Sweet Potato Breakfast Scramble

If you usually eat eggs and a sweet potato for breakfast, here’s something a little bit different to do with them – it’s not a total culinary revolution, but it’s colorful and fun, and nice for breaking up the routine on the spur of the moment (read: you don’t have to go out and get any extra groceries, since you have all the ingredients already).

The eggs get a little seasoning boost with chili powder and oregano before they’re topped off with sweet potatoes and finally your salsa of choice – so the salsa gets to add flavor to the potatoes, too. You could use any favorite kind of salsa to change the flavor effect of this dish – go with spicy salsa for a bit of a kick, or stick with a classic sweeter variety for a gentler taste.

This would be an easy breakfast for a morning when you’re not in a rush, but it would also make a simple, kid-friendly breakfast-for-dinner on a busy night.
