Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce & Marinade
BBQ sauce has salt
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.
