  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potato; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

  • Cook and stir sausage in the same skillet over medium-high heat until crumbled and browned, about 5 minutes. Add to the sweet potato in the bowl.

  • Cook and stir onion and red bell pepper in the same skillet until tender, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add mushrooms and kale; cook until kale softens, about 3 minutes more. Transfer to the bowl.

  • Whisk eggs, water, thyme, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Stir into the sausage mixture. Pour into a large baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until sweet potato starts to brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Garnish with green onion.

Paleo or Whole30 compliant, if you choose sausage that is compliant, this is a tasty change from the usual breakfast omelet. Of course, there is no bread or cheese in this, but with the rainbow of colors and flavors, I didn't really miss them. I only changed the greens, subbing in fresh spinach for the kale, because that is what I had on hand. I don't believe that changed the outcome of this solid recipe. I had one serving for breakfast, wrapped up a serving to take to work for lunch, then froze the rest. We shall see what happens after some time in the freezer. I like sweet potato, but in this recipe, i willto season adequately to balance the sweet flavor and make it more savory, next time. Thanks for the idea! Read More

This dish came out drier than I had hoped. Also If I repeat it I will add more herbs and spices. I found it too bland for my taste. Read More

I make this for 12 Servings & it filled to the brim a 9" x 12" dish. It called for 3 llbs of sausage meat which I used but if I make it again I will cut this back as I find that 3 llbs is way too much meat. I used a mixture of sweet potato & yams & I used fresh spinach instead of kale. Otherwise I followed the recipie as stated. While it's tasty I do feel it needs some other seasoning to give it some zip. but a nice change from the bread or hashbrown breakfast dishes. Read More

Great filling breakfast or lunch. I added 3 extra eggs the second time because I wanted more protein and didn t want it to be dense with ingredients. Will be part of the breakfast rotation. Read More

Quite a little prep but did taste very good. I made it as a breakfast dish so tried prepping everything but the eggs thyme and water the day before. I also ended up throwing in the kitchen sink all the veg indicated plus 1/2 a yellow squash and a bit of fresh broccali. Wasn't sure what size pan to use so used an 8"x 8". It was pretty full so took more like 40-45 minutes to bake through. Main part of the dish was in the fridge overnight so maybe bringing to room temp in the morning might have helped the bake time. It did work fine to most everything the day prior and dump the eggs water and thyme over it just prior to baking though! Will make it again I'm sure. Read More
