  • Once bacon is cooked through, remove from skilled and transfer to a paper-towel plate. Set aside.
  • If desired, add on tablespoon of coconut oil to the bacon grease (pleasantly delicious, in my opinion)!
  • Place cubed sweet potatoes into bacon grease gently, being careful of grease popping!
  • On medium heat, allow sweet potatoes to cook for a few minutes without touching.
  • Flip them over once they start to become soft on one side. Allow to cook a few more minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.

  • To make a space for the eggs, push veggies around to form 2-4 open spots within the skillet mixture and crack eggs in the opening.
  • Place skillet in preheated oven.
  • Bake for 5-10 minutes, depending on how runny you want your eggs.
