Ingredients
  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and diced small
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt and pepper throughout the recipe
  • 4 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 cooked dinner sausages diced
  • 6-8 kale leaves stems removed, chopped (or 4 cups spinach)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice or broth
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F and grease a 9 x 13" pan with olive oil.
  2. Put sweet potato in the pan and toss with a little bit of olive oil and season with a bit of sea salt and pepper. Roast for 20-25 minutes until tender. Remove when done and cool a bit.
  3. Meanwhile; fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until almost crisp. Add the sausage and onion. Cook until nicely browned. Add the kale and cook, stirring frequently, until wilted. Stir in the garlic, cumin, coriander, and cooked sweet potato and remove from the heat.
  4. Beat the eggs in a large bowl with the milk or stock (and nutritional yeast, if using). Season with a bit of salt and pepper. Add the meat and vegetable mixture to the bowl and stir. Pour everything into the prepared baking dish, using a spoon to spread everything out so it's evenly distributed.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the eggs are just set. Cool for at least 5 minutes before serving. Slice into squares and serve hot. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
