Sweet Potato Goat Cheese and Bacon Egg Skillet

Sweet Potato Goat Cheese Bacon Egg SkilletCooking eggs under the broiler is a really great way ensure they’ll be cooked evenly – and they cook really fast. I made this to serve two (a larger brunch) – however this can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a hungry family or group of people. I also like my eggs slightly over easy, and as a kid I was so picky I wouldn’t eat the egg whites – only the runny yolks. Broiling the eggs I’ve found cooks the egg whites more consistently – and cook within minutes.

4-5 large eggs
4 pieces bacon, cooked
1 large sweet potato, peeled
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1 ounce goat’s cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper, to taste

Peel the sweet potato and place it in a microwave and cook for 5 minutes. For the bacon, if it’s not precooked I like to bake mine at 350F for about 8-10 minutes, this eliminates the splatter and mess that it tends to make on the stove.

Preheat the broiler on your oven to high.

Allow the sweet potato to cool a bit till you’re able to safely handle it, then slice it into about 1/8″ pieces and lay them across the bottom of a cast iron or large skillet. Crack your eggs and place them around the sweet potatoes, then top with the peppers, cheese, salt, pepper, and bacon.

Place the skillet in the oven under the broiler and cook for about 4 minutes. Check after 4 minutes and if the eggs are done to your liking, remove. If you want the eggs to be more done, cook for another minute or 2. Enjoy!
