  • 2 large eggs
  • sriracha, for drizzling


  1. Smash up the avocado with a fork, leaving some pieces chunky, then add the lime juice and season to taste.

  2. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 mins, then stir in the sweet potato. Season and press the potato into the pan with the back of a wooden spoon. Cook for 10-15 mins, stirring occasionally, until the potato is softened and crisping at the edges.

  3. Make two spaces in the pan, crack in the eggs and cook for 2-3 mins until the whites are just set and the yolks runny. Dollop on the avocado and drizzle with sriracha to serve.

Fantastic dish

A really tasty and unusual meal. Next time I would cook the sweet potato noodles a little longer as some strands still had a bit of crunch to them. Or alternatively make thinner noodles. The other half has requested this as a post training supper as it has a lot of good stuff going in it.

Tasty and easy. Used half the lime juice (1 lime seems a lot for 1 avocado).

Really Tasty. Worked out just like the method. Can see this one becoming a regular snack for busy evenings, and it would stand up well to tweaking.

Really great, easy recipe. We added some cumin, smoked paprika and chilli flakes when cooking the sweet potato and served with kale on the side. Definitely will be making this again.

Delicious! A little difficult to get it crispy,so finished in the oven , under the grill with a couple of slices of bacon to accompany the eggs. Lovely with the avocado, couldn't get sriracha so used Tabasco.

I don't own a spiralizer; do you think this would work if I grated the potato and onion?

Thanks for your question. You could grate the onion and potato instead. If the potato seems quite moist, then squeeze out any excess moisture by wrapping it in a tea towel. The cooking time might vary. Stir occasionally as suggested and cook until softened and starting to crisp up.
