Eating more sweet potatoes is a goal of mine this year. I am always looking for an "on the go" breakfast and thought that baking this recipe a muffin tin would give me the portable size that I was looking for. Now for the sweet potatoes, I have baked an egg in a muffin tin lined with hash browns before, seems like sweet potatoes could work this way too. I came across a recipe by Create Kids Club who did just this. I took her technique of lining the muffin tins with the sweet potatoes and baking them first before adding an egg and cheese mixture. While this does not result in a crispy crust like a hash brown crust, it does allow the sweet potato to be completely cooked. These will freeze well however, I found it was a good idea to remove the muffin liner before freezing.
