- 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher or sea salt
- 1 cup diced red onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup diced bell pepper, green or red will work
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, optional Ghee
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 4 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
- Add cubed potatoes, vinegar, and 1 teaspoon salt to a pot with water. Make sure there's enough water to just cover potatoes. Bring potatoes to a boil, then reduce heat to a low-boil. Cook potatoes until slightly tender, but still firm.
- Drain potatoes and set aside. Add 1 tablespoon oil to a large skillet (cast iron if available), turn to medium heat, and add onions and bell peppers. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook one additional minute.
- Add onion mixture to a bowl and cover with a paper towel. Add remaining oil to the skillet and add potatoes, 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, cumin, and paprika, tossing to combine. Turn heat to medium-low and cook potatoes until tender on the inside and crisp on the outside, turning while cooking. Be careful not to allow potatoes to burn.
- Remove skillet from heat. Add the peppers and onions to the potatoes and toss to combine.
- Create four openings and add 1 egg to each space, being careful not to break the yolks. Either continue cooking on stove top until eggs are set, or place skillet in a 375 degree oven and cook until eggs are set. Sprinkle cilantro atop potatoes and eggs.
