  • Microwave
  • Large plate
  • Paper towels
  • Small mixing bowl
  • 10″ non-stick saute pan or grill pan
  • Spatula


  • 4 large pasture-raised eggs
  • 1 medium sweet potato, cut in 1/2"-1" cubes
  • 1 organic green pepper, chopped
  • 1 sweet onion or 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Chop green pepper, onion or shallots, and mushrooms into bite-sized pieces and place into the small mixing bowl.
  • Peel sweet potato and chop into 1/2″-1″ cubes and place onto the flat plate.
  • Cover sweet potato with two layers of damp paper towels and place in the microwave for high for 3 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in the sauté pan on the stove top (~7 out of 10 on the burner). Once the pan is hot, transfer the sweet potato into the pan, spread it out evenly and add about 1/4 tsp of the salt.
  • Cook without stirring for ~3 minutes until sweet potato is slightly blackened and crispy, then flip the sweet potato to crisp another side for ~2 minutes.
  • Transfer the pepper, onion, mushroom mixture into the pan and add the black pepper along with another 1/4 tsp of the salt.
  • Mix everything and then cook without stirring for ~3 minutes until the peppers, onions, and mushrooms slightly blacken.
  • Flip the ingredients in the pan and then use the spatula to create four wells for the eggs.
  • Crack the eggs directly into each well. Season them with the remaining salt.
  • Transfer to the oven for ~4 minutes until eggs are cooked.
  • Scoop onto awaiting plates with the spatula and enjoy!
