Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sausage (crumbled)
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 6 whole eggs (beaten)
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds white sweet potatoes (shredded)
  • 4 strips bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 1/4 cup green onion (sliced)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • If the sausage and bacon aren't already cooked, heat a bit of oil in a pair of frying pans over medium-high heat. In one, stir-fry the sausage until browned, then transfer to a large mixing bowl. In the other, cook the bacon until crispy, then set aside.
  • Cook the onion over medium heat until translucent, then add the garlic and stir-fry 1 minute. Add to the bowl with the sausage.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Stir into the sausage mixture along with the sweet potatoes. Pour into an 9x9" baking dish, sprinkle the bacon on top, and cover with foil.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, then remove the foil and bake an additional 15 minutes or until the eggs have set and the top has begun to brown. Serve garnished with green onions.
