  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large sweet potato, diced
  • 1 pound sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup sliced fresh (or can) mushrooms
  • 1 cup torn fresh vegetables (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, or to taste
  • 1 spring onion stalk, diced


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add sweet potato; cover and cook, stirring occasionally for about 8 to 10 minutes until tender. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Cook and stir sausage in the same pan for about 5 minutes until crumbled and browned. Add to the sweet potato in the bowl.
  4. Cook and stir onion and red bell pepper in the same pan for about 3 minutes until tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add mushrooms and torn vegetables; cook for about 3 minutes more or until vegetables soften. Transfer to the bowl.
  6. Whisk eggs, water, thyme, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Stir into the sausage mixture. Pour into a large baking dish.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes until sweet potato starts to brown. Let stand for 5 minutes. Garnish with spring onions.
  8. Serve immediately.
