  • 1 red onion, cut into 1⁄2 in [12 mm] wedges

  • 1 garlic clove, minced 1⁄4 tsp smoked paprika Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • Flaked sea salt
  • Fresh cilantro leaves


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F [220°C]. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a nonstick baking sheet.
  • Combine the sweet potatoes, onion, oil, thyme, garlic, and paprika on the baking sheet and toss to coat.Season generously with kosher salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer. Roast until the potatoes are golden and crisp, about 30 minutes.
