Serves: 4

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1-1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, stems removed, halved
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs
  • Allepo pepper or red pepper flakes
  • Maldon sea salt


1. Heat oil in large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add sweet potato; cook undisturbed for 4 minutes.

2. Stir sweet potato. Add brussels sprouts; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are deeply browned, stirring every 2 minutes.

3. Add 1 cup water; cook 6 to 8 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add additional water in 1/4 cup increments, if necessary, until potatoes are tender.
