Avocado Toad in a Hole with Sweet Potato Hash

Eggs, avocado, and sweet potato!  Yum.  I don’t keep bread in the house but always have avocado on hand.  In this recipe I substitute nutritious avocado for bread and make a better carb choice with sweet potato.

 Serves 2:

1 large sweet potato 1T + 1tsp coconut oil garlic powder onion powder (optional) dried herbs (optional) salt pepper 4 large eggs 1 large avocado

Cut sweet potato lengthwise so it will fit in a food processor tube.  Use the shredder blade.  Combine shredded sweet potatoes, and herbs in a bowl.  Add 1T coconut oil to preferably an iron skillet.  Once nice and hot stir-fry potato for one minute then place lid on top for a few more minutes.  Hash is done when some of the hash is brown and texture is soft. 

Cut avocado in half lengthwise, and then in half again.  Remove skin.  2 slices will have a hole where the seed once was.  Dig a hole in the other two slices.  Place the remaining teaspoon of oil in a skillet and warm.  Place avocado slices on the skillet.  Brown slightly and turn.  Drop an egg in the middle of each slice and cook as desired adding salt and pepper if you wish.

Best Darn Deviled Eggs

I’ve never been a big fan of deviled eggs because of the mayonnaise, but this healthy fat recipe is amazing.  Don’t think of them just for dinner parties, they are great accompaniment to a salad or soup, or as snack.  Healthy fats leave you feeling satiated and helps you burn body fat stores.  They will hold up for about three days. 



6 Organic hard-boiled eggs

1 small very ripe avocado


1 ½ teaspoon coconut oil (in liquid state) or olive oil


1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar


½ dill pickle chopped (optional)


¼ cup chopped cilantro (optional)


salt, pepper, cayenne and cumin to taste





Slice eggs in half.  Remove the yolk from each egg and place in a large bowl.  Use a fork to blend yolk, avocados, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, pickle (if using) and seasonings.  Mix to desired consistency.  You can use a blender if you prefer the filling creamier, but I like texture so use a fork.  Spoon the mixture into the center of each egg.  Place a dot of Sriracha onto each egg.  Sprinkle with cilantro if using.   Nosh!
