Nacho Bacon and Eggs
This quick and easy Sunday Breakfast will become a favourite if you love nachos as much as we do. Layers of crispy sweet potatoes, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, onion and avocado in a Mexican spice is all that is needed to have you licking your fingers for more! So how and why did I decide to come up with these Nacho Bacon and Eggs?
Most mornings consist of a quick breakfast and that often is a black coffee, one boiled egg and a teaspoon of peanut butter but there is at least once a week that I like to put together something special. Sunday. Sunday’s has slowly become a no rush day. The kind of day you look at the ‘must do’ list and think “I’m not even going there today”. This was not the OLD me but after battling a very painful health concern for 7 months (and it is still ongoing), I have learnt to slow down and appreciate the saying:
“Time is free but it is priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back” and so I have learnt to slow down and enjoy Sunday mornings.
On a Sunday morning, Peter and I love to wake up and watch an episode of a series we love (The Last Kingdom, Star Trek, Chef’s Table, to name a few). Once the kids slowly roll out of bed, we all head downstairs and have breakfast together. It’s the start to a perfect day.
Since recently I have been cooking a lot with sweet potato, I decided to think of how I could add it to a breakfast dish. When I asked my son for ideas, he typically answered that whatever it was to make sure it included bacon and eggs and so this Nacho Bacon and Eggs Breakfast was created. Over the years I have seen a few recipes combining bacon with nachos but all used corn chips and to tell you the truth, I’m actually not a fan of corn chips so it was logical to replace them with something else. I must say, it is perfect just like our Sunday mornings.
Once again, I would love to see photos of the recipes you cook and feel free to email me or message me on any social media channels. I love hearing from you all. Enjoy x
400g or 1 large sweet potato
175g or 5 slices bacon, sliced into stripes
1 small red onion, sliced
10 cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
1 avocado, peeled and diced
Garnish with parsley
Preheat oven to 210C fan forced and line large tray with baking paper.
Using a mandolin, slice sweet potato into thin slices and spread across baking tray. Spray with extra virgin olive oil and season with sea salt, pepper, paprika, cumin and cayenne pepper. Place in hot oven and bake for 5 minutes.
Remove tray from oven and spread strips of bacon over sweet potato and bake for a further 8-10 minutes.
Remove tray from oven and create spaces similar to a nest so the eggs can sit in. Crack egg in each nest and season as preferred. Bake for a further 5 minutes or until egg white is set.
Once ready serve topped with slices of red onion, tomatoes, avocado and fresh parsley. Optional to squeeze fresh lime juice all over. Enjoy!
