eomeote #5: baked sweet potato with egg and harissa

baked egg with harissa

sweet potato seasoned with harissa (a north africa chili and spice paste), baked with an egg, and topped with breadcrumbs. this is actually an entry for bomtoe #1: beginning of the month toast on egg, but because that doesn't actually exist, i'm sneaking this in to eomeoteo(ohweeohweeoh)#5, hosted by the most passionate of cooks, why it's the passionate cook, with the salvo that if you dump this on the floor upside down, it would be well within the guidelines.

1 sweet potato, scrubbed clean
harissa-a spicy chili pepper sauce from north africa (you can buy it or here's a recipe) or use any chili-garlic sauce
1 egg
panko bread crumbs
melted butter or olive oil

1.prepare the sweet potato for baking, and bake in a preheated oven at 200C/Fan 180C/400F/Gas Mark 6 for 40-50 minutes until sweet potato is tender.
2. wrap the base of the potato in foil, then cut an 'X' on top. scoop out the flesh and mix with the harissa or chili sauce to your liking. return mixture to potato, making a little well in the middle.
3. crack egg into the well, then sprinkle the top with panko bread crumbs. drizzle with melted butter or olive oil.
4. continue baking for 8 to 10 minutes until egg is cooked to your preference.
