    This recipe calls for half of the Roasted sweet potato recipe.
  • When the potatoes are finished you can leave the oven on at 425°F.

Skillet preparation

  • In an oven-safe skillet (we used a 10.25" cast iron), heat the avocado oil on medium.
  • Add sliced red bell peppers to the skillet and saute until they begin to carmelize. 
  • Add cumin, smoked paprika, and garlic powder to the sauteed peppers. Saute until fragrant then remove from heat. 
  • Layer your roasted sweet potatoes over the spiced pepper mixture. 
  • Break 6-8 eggs over the sweet potatoes.


  • Bake skillet for 15-20 minutes at 425°F until eggs are cooked through. You can monitor the eggs to make sure they do not overcook.

*If you're a Trim Healthy Mama and you want this to be an E meal, you can use egg whites instead of the whole egg. 
Optional: add herbs such as oregano, parsley, or thyme to garnish the egg bake.
