If you’re short on time, buy pre-diced sweet potatoes and sliced veggies for this meal! You can usually find diced sweet potatoes and pre-sliced veggies in the produce section at your grocery store. The prepped ingredients will cost a bit more, but it’s a great time saver.

Sunny side up eggs can be a bit of an art, so don’t worry if they don’t come out perfect. This video has some great tips for cooking sunny side up eggs. Also, feel free to scramble the eggs if your family prefers!

If you have picky eaters at home, let them assemble their own bowls! Feel free to use this recipe as a blueprint, but allow your family to customize their bowls as they like. They are no doubt more likely to eat their breakfast when they’ve gotten to be part of the process of making it!
