I know what you’re thinking…REAL ORIGINAL JULI…and you’re right. This recipe isn’t a original. Really almost any paleo blog you look at out there, you can find some kind of egg muffin/egg cupcake/egg round, but that’s because it’s simple. And that’s what people like. Simple sh*t. Most people don’t like to spend hours in the kitchen, they’d rather be flirting with men at Whole Foods. That’s just me actually. Whatever. I’ve never even talked to a man at Whole Foods. I have hopes of that occurring though. Someday…someday.
Anywho, even though this recipe is a bit dumb, it’s still super special to me. You know why?!? Because it was the first video I made of myself cooking!! So exciting! I’m not really good with being on camera. But I tried. I talked about a lot of random sh*t…but that’s what I do in my blog posts so I guess it makes sense. If you think I look stupid in the video…you’re correct. Special thanks to Tom who helped me edit this video and spent hours putting up with me and to Laura (the roomie) for recording me on a Saturday afternoon. She’s pretty damn awesome. And btw, the cooking video is on my YouTube station which has all my wod videos I had to turn in when I did the AgainFaster Wod Series. Some embarrassing. Ignore those. My b.
- 1lb ground pork mild italian sausage
- 12 eggs, beaten (if preferred)
- 1-2 narrow sweet potatoes, sliced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Add your ground pork to a large skillet over medium heat. Use a spatula to break it up into crumbly pieces
- While the pork is cooking, slice your sweet potatoes a little bit thicker than a chip would be...I'd say the thickness of 2 quarters stacked together. Real technical. Then beat your eggs (unless you are going to crack them directly into the egg cups).
- Once the meat is cooked through and there is no pink remaining, transfer that to a plate (a slotted spoon will be best because it will keep the leftover fat in it, but just pouring it works as well).
- Now add your sliced sweet potatoes to the pan with the leftover fat and turn the burner on high.
- Cook for about 5 minutes per side, depending how thick they are but you want them to be soft so they will cook through fully when they are in the oven.
- Now place a cooked sweet potato slice into your muffin tin, top it with a little ground pork, then another slice of slice potato and top it all off with some beaten eggs or crack an egg into it, it will bind it all together!
- Cook for about 10-15 min or until nothing oozy is moving around in the tins when you check them.
- Let cool, top with hot sauce!!
