Poached Eggs with Sweet Potato Fries



sweet potato, egg, rocket, harrisa, chilli flakes, salt, pepper, oil

45 mins (5 mins if fries already cooked)

A nice healthy twist for a breakfast/lunch/brunch idea, I made extra sweet potato wedges when I was having them for dinner and just reheated them for breakfast which made the dish super quick-under 5 minutes.

Pre heat oven to 200c. Start by scrubbing the dirt off the sweet potato, I prefer them with the skins on and cut into fries. If you want to speed the process up a bit spread them out evenly on a plate and microwave for 5 minutes to soften them up. Then cover the fries in 1tsp of harrisa and a little oil before putting in the oven on a baking tray. When they are nearly cooked boil a pan of water and crack an egg into a jug/mug. Once the water is simmering gently, stir with a spoon until there is a vortex in the middle, slowly tip the egg into the water and continue to simmer for a couple of minutes. While the egg is cooking, mix a handful of rocket with the wedges, once the egg is cooked lift out with a slotted spoon onto some kitchen roll to dry off, then serve on top of the wedges and season with salt, pepper and some chilli flakes.
