  • Heat up a cast-iron skillet on medium heat.
  • While the skillet heats up, peel the sweet potatoes.
  • Once the skillet is hot, add oil and crushed red pepper. The pepper will sizzle, cook for 10 seconds or so.
  • Add the sweet potato, stir and cook on medium heat for about 8 minutes uncovered.
  • In the meantime, chop the green bell pepper and red onion. Stir the sweet potato in between.
  • Once 8 minutes are up, add the bell pepper and onion to the sweet potato. Season with black pepper and just a pinch of salt (you don't need much since the bbq sauce has enough sodium).
  • Stir and cover. Reduce heat to low and cook for about 6 minutes. Stir in between to prevent burning.
  • In the meantime chop the chives and set aside.
  • Check on the sweet potato - should be fork tender.
  • Now add barbecue sauce, I love this one from Trader Joe's, but you can use any kind.
  • Stir and cook for about 1 minute until the sauce warms up.
  • Now crack 3-4 eggs over the sweet potato.
  • Cover with a lid and cook for 7 minutes. For slightly runny eggs cook for 5 minutes.
  • Eggs are done.
  • Garnish with chives. Serve immediately.


* For a 100% paleo option, skip the barbecue sauce and use one that is paleo or make your own BBQ sauce.
** For the eggs, you can use up to 4 eggs in this dish, and you may also use egg whites.
