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