  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 peppers, diced (I prefer red and yellow for color)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2/3 pounds spicy chicken sausage
  • 4 cups shredded sweet potatoes (about 2 medium-sized potatoes)
  • 3 tablespoons Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 6 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Heat oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add onions and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add garlic, peppers, and salt and pepper and sauté 3 more minutes.

  4. Add chicken sausage and cook 5 minutes, or until cooked through.

  5. Add shredded sweet potatoes and sauté, stirring often, for 5 minutes until they’re softened.

  6. Stir in 2 tablespoons parsley, cheddar cheese, and apple cider vinegar.

  7. Make 6 shallow impressions spaced evenly around the skillet, then crack an egg into each spot (you may want to crack each egg into a small bowl first to make sure the yolk stays intact, then pour it into place in the skillet).

  8. Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until eggs are cooked to your liking.

  9. Sprinkle eggs with salt and pepper, and garnish the entire skillet with remaining chopped parsley.
