What Makes This Recipe So Good
- Who says Whole30 has to be boring? I’ve been making this recipe for years and it’s still one of my favorites, on- or off-round. It’s totally Whole30-compliant but it’s full of delicious flavors, creamy guac, crispy bacon, and of course, sweet yet savory sweet potato fries. YUM.
- Is it a breakfast recipe, or is it a dinner recipe? Yes. It is. Seriously, these loaded sweet potato fries are an easy and delicious way to meet your Whole30 meal template, so why relegate them to just one time of day?
- One of the really nice things about this recipe is that it’s super easy to adjust to your group size. Smaller portion for a quick lunch for just you? No problem. Larger spread to feed a group? This works for that, too!
Sweet Potatoes – If you want to make things a little easier on yourself, you can make this recipe using frozen sweet potato fries. Just make sure they’re totally compliant if you’re on round – just sweet potatoes with nothing added.
Spices – I’ve totally perfected the spice blend used here to play up every single aspect of sweet and savory in the dish. Feel free to adjust the spices to your preferences, but I really think you’re gonna love it!
Fried Eggs – An easy and delicious way to throw in a little protein. Plus, the soft yolks make an amazing sort of sauce to dip the sweet potato fries in.
- A little seasoned breakfast sausage can be a great addition, or you can use instead of bacon if you’d rather. Just be sure if you’re using breakfast sausage that it’s Whole30-compliant. I’ve got a great recipe here if you want to make your own!
- For more of a taco-style Whole30 loaded sweet potato fries, feel free to scrap the eggs and bacon and top the fries with compliant seasoned ground beef, diced tomatoes, chopped jalapeños, and fresh cilantro.
- Be careful not to overcook the eggs. You want the yolk to be a little soft so you can use it as a sort of sauce to dip the fries into!
