Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 2


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (+ more if needed)
  • Approx. 2 cups sweet potato, peeled + chopped into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 cup zucchini, chopped into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 cup corn, canned or fresh
  • 2 tsp taco seasoning
  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt + pepper, to taste
  • Optional toppings: avocado slices, guacamole, salsa, cilantro, parsley, grated cheese, etc.


  • Heat a skillet over medium and add olive oil.
  • Cook sweet potato chunks for about 7 minutes before adding in zucchini. Cook for another 5 minutes before adding in corn, taco seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cook all ingredients for an additional 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Once the veggies have started to soften and brown, make 4 spaces within the veggies using the back of a spatula. Crack one egg into each of the spaces.
  • Reduce heat, cover the pan, and continue to cook until egg whites are done but yolks are still runny, about 7 minutes.
  • Uncover and remove from heat. Add toppings as desired and enjoy!


*Leftovers of this breakfast skillet recipe can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. I would recommend adding toppings like avocado only at time of serving.
*This recipe can easily be reheated in the microwave. If reheating on the stovetop, know that the eggs will become scrambled.
*For a vegan option of this recipe, simply omit the eggs and switch with another source of plant-based protein. Canned black beans would work well, to stay with the "taco theme!"
*You can also modify the vegetables in this recipe with other veggies you may have on hand. Things like leafy greens, tomatoes, bell peppers, or white potatoes will also work!
