Rosemary adds great, fresh flavor. If you don’t have rosemary you can use any fresh herb you like; try thyme, chives, or cilantro.
Save time by making this breakfast with leftover baked or roasted sweet potatoes.
Or, instead of steaming, you can quickly cook one in a microwave while you prepare the rest of this breakfast.
Pierce a sweet potato four to five times with a fork, and microwave it on high for 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender.
Peel it and cut into pieces, or slice it in half and scoop out the center.
