Start your day off on the right food with a hearty breakfast of eggs, ham and sweet potatoes! Eggs are a breakfast staple for both Paleo and non-Paleo eaters because eggs are nutritious and full of healthy fats to keep us satisfied until lunch.
There are 10 eggs in this recipe, and you may be worried about the amount of dietary cholesterol from all these eggs. But for most of us, there’s no need to worry about dietary cholesterol, because dietary cholesterol from whole foods does not raise blood cholesterol. Besides, egg yolks contain a plethora of nutrients like choline, selenium and B vitamins — so eat up!
This egg loaf recipe is great to cook for brunch on the weekend, and heat up for leftovers during the week. Like most egg-based casseroles and muffins, you can experiment with this recipe by tossing in different vegetables, like a handful of spinach or scallions.
