Sweet Potato Skillet with Sausage & Eggs

A one pan dish featuring sweet potatoes, savory sausage, sautéed peppers and onions, and eggs that are cooked to perfection. Makes 4 servings.

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a large ovenproof pan (cast iron preferred) heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium high heat.
  3. Add sweet potato, green pepper, and onion. Stir and season with garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  4. Let potato mixture cook for 5 minutes, stirring often, until veggies begin to soften.
  5. Cover mixture (I use a large lid from another pot) and let veggies continue to cook and brown for another 5 minutes. Stir occasionally and reduce heat if they are browning too fast. NOTE: If mixture seems dry and you're worried it might burn you can add ¼ c of water to the pan. It will cook off and the veggies will continue to brown after it evaporates.
  6. Potatoes should be fork tender and slightly brown. Uncover and add in the sausage.
  7. Stir and let mixture cook for another 3 minutes, until the edges of the sausage begin to brown.
  8. Remove from heat and create 4 small wells in the potato and sausage mixture. Carefully crack an egg into each well.
  9. Place skillet into the oven and cook for about 10 minutes or until eggs reach your desired consistency. I like for my whites to be set and the yolk to be about halfway cooked.
  10. Remove from oven and garnish with green pepper and hot sauce, if desired. Enjoy!
