There is a charming little yellow bungalow in Roswell, Georgia called Fellows Cafe. It has a beautiful front porch that is shaded by a magnificent oak tree. It is has the best atmosphere and the best breakfast in Atlanta. It is my favorite brunch spot.
I love to go with my family, or, my friends and sip on espresso while eating The Usual. The Usual is Fellows breakfast bowl; it has roasted sweet potatoes, eggs, bacon, lemon-dressed arugula, and an avocado. The Usual is healthy, delicious, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and Paleo—it is essentially my dream breakfast.
Since moving from Atlanta I really miss going to brunch at Fellows Cafe. I really miss their breakfast bowl so, of course I made my own. This breakfast bowl has it all— crispy roasted sweet potatoes, eggs however you like them, crispy bacon, fresh arugula, and a creamy avocado. It is nutrient dense and delicious. Enjoy it for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or, dinner!
- 1-2 medium/large sweet potatoes (depending on how many people you are serving)
- eggs (1-2 per person, prepared however you like them: scrambled, fried, poached, or, soft boiled)
- bacon (1-2 slices per person)
- arugula (1-2 handfuls per person)
- avocado (half an avocado per person)
- avocado oil
- sea salt
- pink, or, black pepper
- onion powder
- lemon wedges
- Preheat the oven to 400F.
- Scrub the sweet potatoes, then chop them into 1/2 inch chunks.
- Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle with avocado oil. Toss the potatoes to make sure they are evenly coated in the oil. Spread them out on the baking sheet and sprinkle the sweet potatoes with sea salt, pepper, and onion powder.
- Bake the sweet potatoes at 400F for 40-45 minutes. (You can broil the potatoes for the last 2-5 minutes to crisp them up if you like.)
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or, foil. Place bacon in a single layer across the baking sheet and cook for 17-22 minutes, depending on your oven and how crispy you prefer the bacon. (You can cook the bacon with the sweet potatoes. Just put it in the oven when the sweet potatoes only have 20 minutes left to cook.)
- When the sweet potatoes and bacon only have about 10 minutes left of cooking time, go ahead and make your eggs. Prepare the eggs however you like: scrambled, fried, poached, or, soft boiled.
To assemble the Breakfast Bowls:
- Place 1-2 spoonfuls of roasted sweet potatoes in a bowl.
- Add 1-2 handfuls of fresh arugula and half an avocado. Lightly drizzle avocado oil and fresh lemon juice all over the arugula and avocado, then sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
- Top off the bowl with your eggs and a couple of slices of bacon.
