  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Bacon grease
  • 1 small All purple sweet potato (Diced)
  • 1 small Red Sweet potato (garnet or jewel) (Diced)
  • 1 Medium Russet Potato (Diced)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1 small Onion (Minced)
  • 5 small Collard Leaves (Chopped - Makes roughly 1 cup)
  • 1 tsp Herbs de Provence
  • 1 TBS Olive oil
  • 1/4 lb Ground pork sausage (See notes if using plain ground pork)
  • 1-2 tsp Bacon grease
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 Green Onions (Diced)


  1. Heat a cast iron skillet over med-high heat with olive oil and bacon grease. Once hot add in the purple and red sweet potatoes. Cook for 5 minutes then add the russet potatoes. Salt and pepper the potatoes and cook for 15 minutes.  Add in the onion and collards, saute until the onion is becoming translucent then add the Herbs de Provence.  Cook until the potatoes are soft then divide between bowls. Cover bowls loosely with foil.
  2. Using the same pan and burner add a TBS of oil to the pan. Form the ground sausage into patties and place on the  skillet. Cook  for 2-3 minutes, till the bottom is browned, and flip. Remove from the burner when browned on the other side and fully cooked. Divide sausage patties between bowls.
  3. In a  large non-stick pan add 1 tsp bacon grease and melt over med-high heat. Crack one of the eggs into a small bowl (this helps reduce the risk of egg shell in the egg)  and then pour that egg into the hot pan. Repeat this with the other eggs and turn the burner to low. Cook until the white is mostly firm, 2-4 minutes, then flip. Cook for another minute for a runny yolk or cook longer for a solid one. Repeat this with the remaining eggs then add them to the bowls.
  4. Serve with optional green onions on top.


If using plain ground pork you can season  it with 1/2 tsp each coriander, smoked paprika, garlic powder, mushroom powder, salt and pepper. Then mix thoroughly before cooking.
