This is one of my favorite times of year when I usually start to crave summer fruits and vegetables, and this dish was born out of those cravings.
I thinly slice a large sweet potato into rounds, brush them with ghee (a type of clarified butter, but you could use regular butter too!), sprinkle them with salt, and stick them in the oven to roast until they are tender and starting to brown.
I then layer slices of roasted sweet potato with layers of fresh sliced California avocado and top the stack with a fried egg. I like using a biscuit cutter to trim my fried eggs, but this isn’t necessary. I just like the clean look that it gives the finished dish!
I like to top my stacks with a bit of fresh cilantro, but you could use basil or another herb that you love. You could also drizzle your stacks with some sriracha or a spoonful of salsa. You can really customize these using whatever you’ve got on hand. They make a delicious way to enjoy California Avocado season!
