Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F. Generously spray 12 cups of a regular muffin tin with cooking spray.

Step 2

Peel the sweet potato. Using a box grater, grate the peeled sweet potato so it resembles shredded cheese. This should yield about 2 1/2-3 cups of shredded sweet potato.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, add the shredded sweet potato, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, salt, chipotle powder, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix together with a fork until fully combined.

Step 4

Scoop about 1/4 cup of the sweet potato mixture into the bottom of each muffin cup. Press down and up the sides to form a crust.

Step 5

Carefully crack an egg into each muffin cup. Sprinkle the tops with a small pinch of black pepper. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the whites of the eggs are cooked through and the yolks are cooked to your liking. Let cool for 10 minutes, then use a toothpick and a spoon to loosen the sides and lift them out.


These egg cups can be made ahead and reheated as needed. To store in the fridge for up to 5 days, place the muffins in an airtight container until ready to eat. When you’re ready to heat them up, heat them in the microwave in 15-second increments on high until they’re completely warmed through.

If you’re making a large batch and you don’t think you’ll finish all of them in 5 days, you can also freeze them. Once completely cooled, individually wrap each egg cup with plastic wrap, then place all the cups in a freezer-safe zip top storage bag and freeze. Reheat in the microwave on high in 15-second increments until fully warmed through.
