Sunny and Sweet Bacon Treat

Servings: 1 serving

Ingredients  

  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup grated sweet potatoes
  • 2 slices bacon I use the already cooked type because it gets nice and crispy and is lower in calories
  • sea salt and cracked pepper to taste
  • a sprinkle of dried parsley too if you like

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium skillet, heat the bacon till they’re nice and crispy. Once finished, shake off the grease in the pan – you will use this as the grease to cook the sweet potatoes in.
  • Set the bacon aside and add the sweet potatoes to the skillet. Add desired amount of sea salt and pepper.
  • Cook these sweet potatoes for about 5 minutes on medium/high heat.
  • In a small ramekin, add the cooked sweet potatoes and make a depression in the middle.
  • Crack the egg in the depression.
  • Bake for approximately 12 minutes (for a slightly runny yoke – cook longer if you want it more well done).
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with the bacon strips (crushed) and a sprinkle of dried parsley.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: if you don’t have a ramekin, no worries! You can make this dish without baking. Cook the sweet potatoes in the skillet for 10 minutes, then fry an egg and place it on top of the potatoes. Also, if you're not a fan of bacon, feel free to leave it off. It's still just as tasty!
