      My husband loves poached eggs. I was completely surprised when I topped beet greens with a poached egg. Greens aren’t his thing, but the egg took them over the top. :)

    I can’t even decide which of those egg dishes I want most. They all look amazing. I love eggs, especially with the yolk cooked as perfectly as you did yours. Honey mustard sauce with sweet potatoes sounds like a heavenly combination. Add the egg and I know I’d love it for sure.

      The problem with roasted sweet potatoes and yams is that I could eat the whole cookie sheet by myself. At that point, they aren’t too calorie friendly. :)
