So, if I’m being completely honest here, my go-to easy breakfast is the basic, dreaded avocado toast. I know, I know, I’m so original. But hey! Another fool-proof, always delicious breakfast, don’t knock it ’til ya try it. BUT, today my avo’s weren’t quite toast-ready.

As I rummage through my cabinets and refrigerator for something else to satisfy my early morning carb cravings… POTATOES. And sugar?

There’s really no need to explain my thought process, but — sweet potatoes… casarole… thanksgiving… and here we are: ooey gooey sugary sweet potato breakfast skillet.
