Easiest Tomato Basil Penne with Spicy Italian Chickpeas.
I could eat this Ricotta Naan with Fried Eggs and Sweet Potato Fries every single day.
Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It doesn’t matter.
This is one of those recipes that has the potential to be on repeat every single week, it’s just really, really good. It’s also healthy-ish, and super easy to make. OK, and it involves my homemade naan, which to this day is one of my top ten favorite HBH recipes (and consistently one of the top 3 blog favorites). If you have yet to make it, I am highly recommending that you give it a try. Like this week…it’s kind of life changing (no dramatics intended).
All January long, I wanted to make some kind of fried egg breakfast recipe, but I didn’t want to make toast. It seems as though January was filled with one too many recipes for avocado toast with an egg on top. Scroll through Instagram and there is photo after photo of avocado toast. I get it, it’s an amazing combo, and I too love eating it, but I figured you guys did not need yet another recipe for toast with avocado and eggs. So I didn’t post anything and decided to wait until I had a great idea that was a little different and definitely did not include any toast.
January came and went and I came up with nothing. Not a big deal. I shared plenty of delicious recipes.
But then? February came, and this naan situation happened, and it’s possibly the best breakfast/lunch/dinner ever. I mean, hello, not only is there fresh naan involved, but ricotta and sweet potatoes fries too.
Oh my gosh. So good.
Here’s the story. The other week I made a batch of my favorite Naan dough to be used for an upcoming recipe, but then that upcoming recipe turned out to be no good. Yes, it does happen. I have recipes that fail. It’s true.
Anyway, this recipe fail left me with an entire batch of homemade naan dough. I didn’t really have a plan for it so I let it sit in my fridge for a couple of days. When I realized it was getting a little old, I figured I better either just cook it and eat it (which is definitely not a bad option) or come up with a game plan for it.
I did a quick scroll through my recipe idea list for the next few weeks and landed myself back on that desire to make fried eggs. And then, it hit me. DUH.
Fried Eggs + Naan = yum.
Once I had that in my head, the rest just kind of fell into place. I needed something to spread onto my naan, so in came the ricotta. I also needed something bright and colorful, so in came the sweet potatoes.
Recipe = made.
I literally jumped up and got to work creating this fried egg and ricotta naan and could not have been happier with how it came together. But then, how could a combo like this not be yummy? You really can’t go wrong.
I started off by baking my sweet potatoes. While that was happening, I fried my eggs in a little olive oil, made a quick toasted sesame and paprika chili oil, stirred the ricotta with a little salt, lemon, and honey, and then began assembling.
It’s key to make sure your naan is toasted and warm before spreading it with the ricotta. My recommendation? Toast it in a skillet with a little olive oil or butter. Once the naan is warmed, spread with the ricotta mix, add your eggs, fries, avocado, and a handful of greens. Finish it off with a drizzle of that sesame oil and a sprinkle of salt.
Done and DONE.
Nothing too fancy, but everything put together makes for a pretty awesome, bright, and delicious meal.
Also, while I know this might be a little too much work for a weekday morning, it’s definitely not too much work for a weekday night, and I’m thinking that tonight is a breakfast for dinner kind of night. You guys in?

For real though, breakfast food is never not a good idea, it’s just the best!
I just had this for dinner. Delicious, as always 🙂
Thank you so much Genevieve!
This was so good!! We’ve been looking for new breakfast ideas for our family. This will be added to the line up. Such great favors!
Thank you Jessica! I am so glad you and your family enjoyed this recipe!
We made this and it was great, thank you. We added steak for a “steak & eggs” version of breakfast for dinner. Thanks for teaching us another technique – making naan – such a great recipe. It was super helpful to see the steps laid out.
Congrats to Red (good luck in the Big Air competition), we’ve been enjoying cheering on all our fellow Coloradans at the Games.
Thank you so much Shannon! I am so glad you liked this recipe!
