Eggs are the best fast food option in this world for me. Whenever I want a quick meal which is nourishing and tasty, I choose eggs. Luckily, everyone in my family likes eggs, so from a variety of breakfast ideas to protein packed lunch solutions, eggs are a family favourite. In this recipe we combine the goodness of eggs with the nutritional benefits of sweet potatoes. The result is a meal full of protein, vitamin, fibre and beta-carotene.
The word ‘Fast food’ brings to ones mind the images of all sorts of junk food…but actually fast food can also mean quick, energising food.

I usually serve these with fresh salad and yogurt.
