This recipe will make your wildest dreams come true!! (If your dreams involve sweet potatoes…) What could be more delicious that a grab-and-go breakfast made from sweet potato tots? I love sweet potatoes and especially for breakfast! I found these tots in my local grocery store and decided to pair them up with eggs and ham. Success!
The picture above shows the sweet potato cups after their inital baking and filled with diced ham and ready for the eggs to be added. These little cups were fun to make and even more fun to eat!
