Vegetable Egg Bake with Sweet Potato Crust is the perfect veggie egg bake that can be made for meal prep that your family will absolutely love. An egg bake with sweet potato crust is a great way to start your day.

I had no idea how busy school mornings would be for our family. I get up early naturally so I thought that an 8:30 AM start time of school would be no big deal for Adalyn. I found out that I was quite wrong! Each morning, I have to nurse Oliver and feed him breakfast, get Adalyn and I breakfast, get all of us dressed and a million little things that take up time. I like to walk her to school each day and it is quite far away so we have to leave the house by 7:50 AM to make it. Mornings are busy for us!

I got to thinking about what breakfasts I can make ahead of time that are nutritious and tasty. I love making cold overnight oats, oatmeal prepped the day before and then heated in the morning, waffles, yogurt bowls and smoothies. What we were skipping most of the time is a savory breakfast. I think that eggs are a great source of nutrients and wanted to get more of them into Adalyn's diet. With those thoughts in mind, this egg bake with sweet potato crust was created. I love veggie egg bakes because they are tasty and nutritious.

Chopped vegetables
I used the vegetables that I had on hand: red and green bell peppers, broccoli and tomatoes. Please feel free to switch up these vegetables based on your preferences and what you have on hand for this vegetable egg bake. Also great would be onions, mushrooms, spinach or zucchini. I have made a sweet potato crust before but never shared the recipe so I knew that I had to. My other egg bakes are some of my most popular recipes on the blog so I thought that this one would be a fan favorite too. You can also add a sprinkle of cheese if you like as well.


I kept this egg bake with sweet potato crust very simple and didn't add any sausage, bacon, bread or cheese. I wanted for it to be heart-healthy and super nutritious for those busy mornings that we want to eat well but don't have time to cook a big breakfast. I like making a big dish of this vegetable egg bake on Sunday and eating it for a couple of mornings during the week. It is perfect for meal prep and reheats really well. Just top with a bit of hot sauce or ketchup and breakfast will be ready in 1 minute.
