Print Friendly and PDF

  • 1 package of mild, medium or hot italian sausage or choice of ground meat
  • 4 large sweet potatoes 
  • 10 eggs
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cook the italian sausage or chosen meat. Once cooked drain the excess fat and place to the side.
  3. Grate the sweet potatoes- I used my food processor for this. Crack and whisk 2 eggs and then add the grated sweet potatoes completely cover them with the mixture. Have fun and get hands on! .
  4. Grease a heavy deep dish with your chosen oil-I used a coconut oil spray. Take the sweet potato mixture and coat the bottom as well as the sides of the pan creating your crust. Bake your crust for approx 30-35 minutes or until the edges become slightly brown. Remove and set aside
  5. While the crust is baking making the egg mixture. Whisk the remaining eggs (8), add a cup of water and then your spinach and chosen spices. 
  6. Layer the egg mixture over the sweet potato crust. Then top with the italian sausage mixture or chosen ground meat. 
  7. Place back in the oven for an additional 35-40 minutes. Cooking until the center of the egg mixture is no longer liquid. 
  8. Sit and cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing!
