  • 2 sweet potatoes, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 lb ground breakfast sausage
  • 3 cups spinach, roughly chopped (or sub other greens)
  • 4 green onions, diced
  • 1 can olives, sliced
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 tsp sea salt, divided
  • 1 tsp ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit and line 1 large or 2 medium baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cut sweet potato into small cubes and spread them out on baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with about 1 tsp sea salt. Mix to coat and place in the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  3. While potatoes are cooking, heat a large oven safe skillet over medium heat (use a large skillet, you will add all ingredients in the skillet later to cook in the oven). Add sausage and break it into small bits. Cook until browned, about 7-8 minutes. Remove and place on a plate. Reserve enough fat in the bottom of the pan to coat.
  4. Chop spinach, green onions and olives.
  5. Whisk eggs together in a large bowl. Add in spinach, green onions, olives, cooked sausage and 1 tsp each of salt and pepper.
  6. When the potatoes are finished, remove them from the oven and turn the oven down to 375° Fahrenheit.

  7. Place potatoes in the bowl and mix everything together.
  8. Now, heat the skillet you cooked the bacon in over medium heat and pour the egg mixture in. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes, until bottom has cooked slightly.
  9. Transfer to the oven and cook for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked through. Cooking time will depend on the size of the skillet, so check it after 15 minutes and remove once the eggs are set in the middle.
  10. Remove from the oven, cut into pieces and serve.
