People love poached eggs.
There’s something about that tender egg white and creamy yolk that makes a comforting meal.
It’s the perfect protein to top a piece toasty bread with a bit of melted butter, but we like to be more creative in our house.
We’ve dressed up a bed of beet greens and leeks with these gifts from your local chickens.
And used them to smother slices of salty ham with roasted asparagus on the side.
But we’ve decided these roasted sweet potatoes with poached eggs were definitely a combination made in heaven.
I could have eaten this cookie sheet of roasted potatoes all by myself if left to my own devices, but providing the family with dinner was a necessity, so I restrained myself.
Those nutty roasted sweet potatoes made a delectable bed for our gently poached eggs, especially after they were drizzled with an easy honey mustard sauce.
