Poached eggs make a glorious meal when you serve them with roasted sweet potatoes, kalamata olives and crumbly feta cheese.
It pains me to admit this, but Mr. Mike makes a better poached egg than I do. They turn out perfectly shaped, perfectly cooked, and he never breaks a yolk.
Since eggs and sweet potatoes make such an incredible combination, my spiralizer got to work turning out sweet potatoes into slender tendrils that would roast quickly in the oven.
As my sweet potatoes cooked, eggs were poached on the stove then placed in the center so we could swirl yolk into potatoes with every bite.
And while eggs and sweet potatoes would be completely delicious by themselves, crumbles of green onion, parsley, kalamata onion and low-fat feta cheese add those Mediterranean flavors I can’t resist.
Isn’t this a colorful meal? Good thing I have egg poaching King, Mr. Mike. That yolk would be a runny mess if I’ve been at the stove!

Mediterranean Sweet Potatoes and Eggs with Kalamata Olive and Feta Cheese
20 minPrep Time
20 minCook Time
40 minTotal Time
- 4 cups sweet potatoes, spiralized or cubed into small pieces
- 8 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 4 tablespoons green onion, thinly sliced
- 4 teaspoons kalamata olives, chopped
- 8 tablespoons low-fat feta cheese, crumbled
- 4 teaspoons parsley, minced
- Preheat the oven to 425 and spray a non-stick cookie sheet with cooking spray.
- Spread sweet potatoes out on the cookie sheet. Spray the top of the potatoes with cooking spray and lightly season with salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes, then gently stir. Roast another 10 minutes until potatoes are softened and lightly browning.
- In a medium sized skillet add 2” of water and add vinegar. Bring the water to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Crack eggs and gently add to the pan. Allow to simmer to the desired doneness. We like the yolk runny, so 5 minutes often works for us.
- Place 1/4 of the sweet potatoes in a circle in a bowl leaving a place in the middle for the eggs. Place eggs in the middle, then top with remaining ingredients.
