Sweet Potato Scramble

Sweet Potato Scramble

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 and 1/2 cups raw sweet potato (about 2 small potatoes) - diced
  • 4 slices of bacon - chopped into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 green onions - chopped into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon ground red chiles
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a large sauce pan, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add three dashes of salt and the sweet potatoes. Boil for two minutes. Reduce the heat and bring the water to a simmer.

Cook until the sweet potatoes are tender (3 or 4 more minutes). Drain the water from the potatoes.

In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Transfer bacon to stacked paper towels to remove excess grease. Drain the bacon grease from the pan leaving only a teaspoon or so to act as cooking oil for the scramble.

Return skillet to heat. Add potatoes and cook until browned - stirring occasionally.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the the ground chiles and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Add egg mixture to the potatoes in the skillet. Stir in bacon and chopped onion.

Once the eggs begin to set, stir and scramble with a spatula or fork.

Cook until eggs are completely set. Serve immediately.

You can use regular potatoes in this recipe but the sweet potatoes make this scramble fun and unique.

I use to make an egg potato scramble, but I now eat Paleo so I tried this with sweet potatoes and I was pleasantly surprised. Thank you!
