On our way back from Mississippi last weekend, Stephen and I stopped off in Birmingham to grab brunch. I ordered a brunch flatbread, but he got an order of Loaded Breakfast Fries. I KNOW. And they were so, so good. I knew I was going to have to make my own version of those loaded fries. The fries at the restaurant were smothered in cheese & sausage gravy, with bacon and a fried egg on top. Since that’s not how we normally eat, I wanted to create a slightly lighter version.
So, instead of regular potatoes, I used sweet potatoes and baked my “fries” instead of frying them. I left off the gravy, and sprinkled mine with a little cheese, turkey sausage, and avocado, topped off with a over-medium fried egg. So, still not your healthiest breakfast, but still a good bit lighter than the restaurant version.
|Passive Time||30 minutes|
- One medium sweet potato
- 1/4 cup Turkey Sausage Crumbles
- Mozzarella cheese shredded
- 1/3 Avocado cubed
- 1 Egg
- Peel and slice your sweet potato into fries. (I prefer thinner fries for this dish.)
- Spray the sweet potatoes with a little canola oil and toss in salt & pepper.
- Spread the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet & cook for 20-25 minutes on 450. Cook them a little longer if you're a fan of crispy sweet potatoes.
- Place the fries in a bowl or mini cast iron skillet, and sprinkle with as much cheese as you'd like.
- Next add hot turkey sausage crumbles & avocado chunks.
- Top it off with an egg cooked your favorite way.
