  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 sweet potatoes 1 1/2 pounds, chopped in 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups kale chopped
  • 4 slices bacon chopped
  • 4 eggs


  • Heat a skillet over medium heat, and add the avocado oil, sweet potatoes, and onions. Season with the salt, cumin, chili powder, and black pepper, stirring occasionally. Allow to soften for 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Preheat the Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-In Wall Oven on Convection Bake at 400º F for 20 minutes.
  • Add the chopped kale into the skillet and use a fork to mix it in to the sweet potato mixture. Add the bacon to to the top of the skillet, spreading it out over the top so the pieces bake and crisp up.
  • Bake the skillet for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the oven, and use a fork to make 4 indentations around the skillet. Add 1 egg to each indentation.
  • Return the skillet to the oven, selecting "more time," and add 7 minutes for medium done eggs, up to 10 minutes for well done eggs.
  • Serve immediately.


Make this your own skillet by swapping the meats or veggies. Instead of kale, try chopped broccoli or bell peppers. Instead of the bacon, add chopped precooked sausage, or omit the meat to make this a vegetarian skillet. It's also delicious with a layer of cheddar cheese melted on top!
Be sure to put your cast iron skillet in your oven prior to starting this dish to make sure it slides it and allows the door to close. We use a 10" cast iron skillet for this recipe. A dutch oven works in place of a skillet if your handle is too long.
