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.

MethodUsing 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.
