Sweet potato makes a healthy addition to this quick all-in-one breakfast. For even cooking, choose a sweet potato that is the same thickness throughout. A cooked potato is easier to cut when it's cool, so cook it ahead of time, if possible.

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato (about 1 lb/450 g)
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced ham
  • 1/4 cup diced roasted sweet red pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Method

Using fork, prick sweet potato all over. Microwave on high, turning once halfway through, until tender, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly. (Make-ahead: Wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.) Peel and cut into 1/8-inch (3 mm) thick slices.

Meanwhile, combine butter, paprika, garlic powder and half each of the salt and pepper.

Lightly grease four 12-inch (30 cm) lengths of heavy-duty foil. Slightly overlap sweet potato in circle in centre of each sheet; drizzle with butter mixture. Divide green onions, ham and red pepper over top.

Bring up sides of foil to create bowl. Crack egg into each packet. Bring together 2 long sides of foil and fold to seal, leaving room inside for expansion; fold in remaining sides to seal.

Carefully slide packets onto grill over medium-low heat; close lid and cook just until eggs are set, about 8 minutes. Averting hands and face to avoid steam, open packets; sprinkle with basil and remaining salt and pepper.
