Breakfast Sweet Potato

Meet my new breakfast, a sweet potato!

I’ve been sort of in a breakfast slump lately.  I’m not really digging on oatmeal anymore.

Well let me clarify that a bit.  I love oatmeal but I just don’t want it everyday.

I stumbled across Rachel’s blog, Two Healthy Plates, and saw that she posted about having sweet potatoes for breakfast.

Genius!

This was right up my alley and I immediately tried it out the following week.

I am in love with the breakfast sweet potato!

I top it with a little butter, yogurt (vanilla or Greek, your choice) and homemade granola.

Sometimes I’ll add on some sliced up banana as well and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Half a sweet potato with toppings is plenty of breakfast for me and it gets me through the entire morning.

The best thing about this breakfast is that it can be made ahead saving me time in the kitchen in the mornings.

I can roast several sweet potatoes at once and then keep them in the fridge for breakfast during the week.  When I’m ready for breakfast, all I have to do is slice, heat, and top.

Breakfast is done in minutes and it’s yummy!

It’s not a conventional breakfast, I know, but it is exactly what I was looking for.

Now I need to figure out how to make a breakfast soup and I think I’ll be out of my breakfast rut.
