Sweet Potato Nest with Avocado “Egg”

Sweet Potato Nest with Avocado "Egg"

Yield: 2 nests

Sweet Potato Nest with Avocado


  • 2 Medium Sweet Potatoes, grated
  • 1/4 Cup Oat Flour (Or almond meal if following Whole30)
  • 2 pinches Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • Toppings: Dill, Dried Cranberries, Black Sesame Seeds, Ground Black Pepper


Pat all of the grated sweet potato dry with paper towel. This removes any excess moisture that could keep your nests from getting crunchy :)

In a big bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, old bay and salt. Mix. Add the grated sweet potatoes and toss to coat with the flour mixture.

Coat your griddle (or if using a skillet, do in two batches) with olive oil. Spread all the sweet potato out with plenty of space. The more space there is between the sweet potato squiggles, the more the heat will be able to reach more sweet potato surface area making it crispy!

Turn the heat onto high keeping a good eye on it. Flip when the first side is brown.

While that's frying, cut an avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop each half out with a spoon. Place the cut side down in the middle of a bowl and squeeze lemon over the top.

When the sweet potato is crispy on both sides, turn off the heat and place clumps around the avocado "egg". Then decorate your egg however you'd like! Black pepper and black sesame serve as speckles, the cranberries add a nice color, texture and sweetness to the dish, and the dill weaves into the nest well :)
