Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 1/2 pound bacon sugar free if Whole30
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinch pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 fried eggs


  1. Mix all of the seasonings together in a small bowl. Set aside. 

  2. Dice all of the veggies in equal size pieces. This helps the vegetables cook evenly. 

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a cast iron skillet. Throw in the sweet potatoes and cook for 10 minutes or until they start to brown and start becoming soft. The sweet potatoes take the longest to cook, so that is why you must start cooking them first.

  4. Add in the remaining veggies (except spinach) olive oil, and spices. Let the spices cook in some of the oil so they release their flavors and become more potent. Allow the veggies to cook for another 5-10 minutes or until all the veggies are cooked though. During the last minute, add the spinach and let it wilt. 

  5. While the veggies are cooking, you can prepare the bacon and fried egg. 

  6. Scoop desired amount of veggies on each plate (should feed about four). Top each plate with bacon and fried egg.

  7. Serve and enjoy!
