I love a breakfast that’s quick and easy for an on-the-go type of day. Sometimes we don’t have time for a serious sit down meal, so preparing these on-the-go baked egg nests are perfect for when you are rushing out the door but still want your protein-packed nutrient dense meal (or snack).

I am a big fan of eggs as my mid-day snack. I stock up on organic or farm-fresh eggs and am constantly making soft-boiled eggs throughout the week. Hence why I love these; there is so much variation! This time around I chose to make six over easy and six omelette-style, both lined with sweet potato nests, and I top them both with hot sauce, of course.
