When Maddie was first born, a friend of mine brought some Prosciutto Egg Cups over. They were absolutely delicious and super filling. I knew right then that I had to remake them! And I did, but I amped them up a bit of sautéed veggies.

And you loved them too!

So much so that I decided to make you another variation. Ahem… let me introduce these Light & Easy Sweet Potato Hash Baked Egg Cups!

Truth be told, these Egg Cups are actually easier than the Prosciutto ones I’ve previously made.

There’s no other cooking needed for these. All you do is grate the sweet potatoes, place them in a muffin tin, crack an egg in and bake. Voila!

Each egg cup is 129 calories with a whooping 7 grams of protein!
