Courtesy of


  • 1 lb breakfast sausage
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, diced
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • handful cilantro
  • hot sauce
  • raw cheese, optional
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF.
  2. In an oven safe skillet (like cast iron), crumble and brown the sausage over medium heat.
  3. Once it’s brown, use a slotted spoon to remove the sausage. Set aside. Try to reserve as much of the grease as possible.
  4. Toss the sweet potatoes into the sausage grease and let them get crispy and cooked through.
  5. Add the sausage back into the pan.
  6. Make a few wells in the pan–one well for each egg. Crack your eggs into the wells.
  7. Place the skillet in the oven, baking the skillet long enough for the eggs to set, about 5 minutes.
  8. Turn the oven to broil to brown top side of the eggs for a few minutes, the yolks will still be soft.
  9. Remove the pan from the oven and cover with avocado, cilantro and hot sauce.
  10. Serve by scooping out an egg, along with its neighboring goodies, with a large spoon.

Enjoy the Cowboy Breakfast Skillet before a big day of exercise!
