This recipe from Niall Kirkland is just the thing to upgrade your weekend brunch.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? With these delicious sweet potato rostis you’ll be set for a great start. Crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, they’re super-filling and a match made in heaven for poached eggs — the perfect combo for a healthy, high-protein breakfast.
For the rosti cakes:
- 2 sweet potatoes (peeled)
- 1 red onion (finely chopped)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. chili flakes
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 2 tbsp. flour
- Salt & pepper to season
- 1 tbsp. MCT oil
- 4 eggs
- 1 tbsp. vinegar
- Pinch of salt
- Chili flakes
- Preheat your oven to 400°F
- Firstly, grate the sweet potatoes using the coarse side of a box grater and then transfer to a large bowl.
- Add the red onion, eggs, chili flakes, paprika, seasoning and flour to your bowl and mix well so that everything is combined.
- Now, form your sweet potato mixture into 4 evenly sized rosti cake patties and place on a baking tray.
- Bake your rostis for 15 minutes.
- Now, heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan and transfer each rosti cake into the pan. Fry them for around 4 minutes before flipping and frying for another 2 minutes — or until they are crispy.
- To poach your eggs, bring a saucepan of water to a simmer, add a pinch of salt and the vinegar.
- Then, using a spoon, create a whirlpool in the water. Crack your egg into a bowl before carefully dropping the egg into the whirlpool. Cook for 2-3 minutes for soft, runny poached eggs.
- Serve your poached eggs on top of the sweet potato rostis, and garnish with chili flakes and black pepper.
