Sweet Potato Tamagoyaki

My fiance and I went to this restaurant that serves delicious breakfast foods, and I tried a Sweet Potato Omelete. It was amazing, and it made me wonder why I've never added sweet potato to my omeletes before. And for that matter, why haven't I ever made sweet potato homefries? I am going to try it, just you wait!
Anyway, I got the idea this morning to make a Sweet Potato Tamagoyaki, and a summery fruit salad for breakfast, so here is what I came up with.
I think it came out beautifully, and I just had to add a background to the picture to make it more pretty and special. I am sooo happy with how this tamagoyaki came out that I am even going to share my secret to how I prepared the sweet potato...
It's Frozen Sweet Potato Fries!!! That's right, I took Sweet Potato Fries from the freezer and tossed them in my frying pan with some non-stick spray. I cooked it just enough so that they were no-longer frozen and the outsides got slightly crisp. Then I removed them and prepared the egg beaters in the pan, I laid down a few large spinach leafs and laid out the sweet potato fries, then I wrapped them up in the egg and made Sweet Potato Tamagoyaki. It turned out beautifully, and it tasted even better. I will definitely be making this again. I loved it!
  • Sweet Potato Tamagoyaki
  • Stone Fruit Salad (Peaches, Plums, and Cherries)
The Fruit salad was the perfect compliment because it carried the sweetness over to the sweet and savory tamagoyaki, but it wasn't overpowering at all. Also the Peaches and Plums were soooo ripe and delicious, and the Cherries were sweet. Fresh fruit makes all the difference!


  1. Mmm. I love sweet potatoes. And they are such a nice contrast with the egg and the spinach! You have such clever ideas.

    1. Thank you. I love that is is so pretty, but it's even yummier then it looks :)
