This post will make things perfectly clear: I am a fitness and nutrtion blogger, NOT a food blogger.
However, I did want to share a recipe with you that has become a family fave.
1 pound sugar free bacon (or sausage):
cook bacon in large skillet
While bacon is cooking, wash and dice:
2-3 sweet potatoes
After bacon is finished cooking, remove from pan. Drain most of the grease, but leave a little to cook the diced sweet potatoes.
Cook sweet potatoes until soft, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When sweet potatoes are cooked, crumble bacon and stir back into sweet potatoes. Divide sweet potato/ bacon mixture into sections so that you have room for:
4-5 eggs, depending on the size of the skillet
Break eggs into the hollows left in the sweet potato/ bacon mixture
Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes, depending on how you want your eggs.
Eat and enjoy! Serve with avocado slices for added deliciousness and healthy fats!
I confess that this is not my own creation – I am NOT about that life! — but it’s an adaptation of one I saw on a blog almost 2 years ago. If I could find the original post I would send you there because that person is a GENIUS!
Because this is SO filling and high carb/ fat, it’s really a better choice as a breakfast or brunch recipe — when you would likely burn all of that off later. Reality is that occasionally I cook myself eggs for breakfast, but if there is “dice vegetables, then cook for 10 minutes…” in a recipe for a breakfast? Yeah, I’m out.
