  • Turn your ovens broiler on high
  • Preheat a 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat and place your coconut oil in the pan
  • Add your diced onion to the pan and stir for about 3 minutes until they start to get soft
  • Add in your peppers and garlic and continually stir for 1 minute
  • Add in your ground beef or italian sausage and stir for 3-4 minutes or until nice and browned
  • Add your sweet potato and saute, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes until your sweet potatoes soften
  • Add your spinach to the pan and stir often until your spinach starts to wilt which should take 2 minutes
  • Make 3 small wells around your pan and crack an egg in each well
  • Place your pan six inches under your broiler and cook to your liking. 2 minutes should get you really runny yolks, 3 minutes will almost be a solid yolk and 4 minutes will be a hard yolk
  • Remove from the oven and serve right from the pan


To shred the sweet potatoes, use either a Spiral Slicer or Julienne Peeler
