I haven’t always been a breakfast person, but protein rich breakfasts sure give me a boost of energy and keep me going strong throughout the day. This meal is actually perfect for any time of the day…I love it for dinner as well. I pretty much love any type of egg & meat scramble, but this one was terrific! I’ll have to double the recipe next time!
Ham, sweet potatoes, tart granny smith apples, a diced shallot and freshly scrambled eggs. Yummy!
And…there’s more…I added a couple dashes of Watkin’s cinnamon, TraderJoe’s Seasoning Salute, and a little salt and pepper to really boost the flavor. You’ll love how these different flavors come together in one yummy dish. I just love cooking with my cast iron skillet – it was my husband’s great grandmother’s skillet, so there’s a lot of love going into this meal.
Cooking and eating delicious, healthy meals doesn’t need to be complicated. This one is super-easy and not too time consuming. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

- 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1/4″ thick cubes
- 1 shallot, diced
- 3 eggs, scrambled
- Organic Coconut Oil
- In a large frying pan or skillet, add 2 tbsp of coconut oil and heat to medium.
- Sauté the diced shallot 2-3 minutes and leave in the pan.
- Add the sweet potatoes to the shallots and cook for about 7 minutes or til tender.
- Add the ham, apples and herbs/spices to the pan.
- Continue cooking until the sweet potatoes and apples are tender, then reduce heat.
- In a separate pan, add apx 1 tbsp coconut oil and heat pan to medium. Scramble the eggs in your frying pan.
- Mix the scrambled eggs into the potato mixture, stir and mix well.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
**I made the mistake of not using a separate pan to scramble the eggs…my eggs turned a grayish color because of the oils etc from the skillet…which is why you don’t see eggs in my finished dish! Yes, I ate them…I just didn’t get a picture with them. I suggest using a separate pan 🙂
