Sweet Potato and Apple Breakfast Casserole.

Weekends are for late breakfasts, and taking time to make and enjoy a filling meal to start and carry you through the day till dinner. This is an easy American style breakfast casserole that is healthy, tasty and quite satiating.

I really love sweet potatoes; boiled, fried, baked, grilled, stewed, in all its forms, and it is found in plenty here in Kampala, much to my happiness.

Fun fact: Sweet Potatoes are an ideal weaning meal too for little ones. Their natural sweetness is easier for the baby as it is as sweet as breast milk. So steam and mash it up well for your little ones. It is gentle on their digestive systems and rich in Vitamins A, C, full of betacarotene and has copper, manganese among other minerals important to your physical development. I weaned all my kids on this and I liked how easy it was to prepare and also quick for them to adapt to. Try it.

This breakfast casserole is quite loaded, making it tasty and filling. Let’s get started:-

Ingredients: 2 sweet potatoes, 3 apples, 2 tbsp oil, 1/ 2 tsp salt, 3 eggs, 1 cup coconut milk, butter, chia seeds, desiccated coconut, raisins and mixed nuts. Spices: pinch of nutmeg and 1 tbsp cinnamon.
Wash and grate your apples and strain all their juice. You can squeeze some lemon juice so they do not discolour.
Peel and clean then grate your sweet potatoes.
Heat your pan, add a bit of butter and the oil, cook the sweet potatoes till they turn golden brown and set aside to cool.

Preheat your oven to 200° Celsius and lightly grease your baking dish.

In a bowl, add the salt, spices, some chia seeds, the coconut milk, and the beaten eggs. Mix well.
Squeeze out all the juice from the apples and add to the egg mixture, then add the sweet potatoes and mix well.
Add the mixture to your baking dish and add the raisins, nut and coconut on top. You can use other toppings if you wish.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the eggs are set and the dish begins to brown. It may be a bit longer or shorter depending on your oven too.

Once ready, let cool a bit then serve as you wish.

Slice as per your preferred size. You can have as is with a cup of ginger tea.
Or you can serve with a crunchy red cabbage and carrot slaw.
Or my fav, with some creamy avocado slices with a bit of hot sauce. Yum!

Quick notes: I did not add sugar as the sweet potatoes here are sweet enough plus the apples. Do not throw the strained apple juice, you can use it to soak overnight oats or drink it, please don’t waste it.

Weekend breakfasts don’t have to be heavy fry ups or just same ol’ pancakes, you can try this for a change. Right?
