  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons refined coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 avocado, seed and flesh removed from skin, sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped


  1. Spiralize your sweet potatoes with the smallest noodle setting.
  2. Place one tablespoon of coconut oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the sweet potato noodles and sauté, tossing frequently with tongs for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the water, garlic powder, and sea salt to the noodles. Continue to cook, tossing frequently until the water is absorbed, about 2 more minutes.
  4. Remove the sweet potato noodles to a plate.
  5. Arrange four little bundles on the plate, you may need to use kitchen scissors to cut the strands to make the bundles.
  6. Place two bundles in a skillet over medium-high heat with coconut oil. If you can fit all four nests, add all four bundles to the pan. Otherwise, work in two batches.
  7. Use your spatula to tuck in the edges and keep it in a circle “nest” as it cooks.
  8. Use your spatula or a wooden spoon to make a small divot or hole in the center of the nest.
  9. Crack one egg into each nest.
  10. Turn the heat to low-medium and cook for about 4 minutes until the translucent part of the eggs turns white but the yolk is still runny.
  11. Serve with sliced avocado and freshly chopped chives.
