Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet with Bacon Recipe

Bacon is the duct tape of food. It fixes just about any meal.

You can make this dish for breakfast; however, it's delicious at lunch and dinner too.

Batch prepping your meals is a good habit. It's something that will save you time, money, and help you hit your priority-one goal.

Before we get into the recipe, consider the not-so-good habits that are holding you back from having the life you want.  

1. Deliberating

When making an important decision, narrow it down to two options.

Give it some deep thought.  

Ask 2-3 trusted advisors (no more) and then make the choice today before bedtime.

Never, ever look back once you do.  

2. Seeking approval

Secretly I want everyone to love me.  

Because that would mean I’m being a “good person” and doing the right thing.  

But that’s impossible. Not everyone will like you, no matter what you do.  

This isn’t me telling you to embrace that silly "zero cares given" mentality.  

Because you should indeed care what others think.  

If you didn’t you would be a sociopath who could never be trusted.  

You just can’t let it affect you or stand in the way of achieving your goals or providing for your loved ones.  

3. Living in your comfort zone

Those who do great things push themselves out of their comfort zones daily.  

Some straightforward examples of getting out of your comfort zone:  

  • Completing a tough workout
  • Giving a presentation in front of a large group
  • Taking an icy-cold shower  

As cliche as it sounds, you’ve got to get comfortable being uncomfortable.  

4. Waiting for the perfect time

  • “I just have to get in better shape first”
  • “Once my schedule slows down we’ll do it”  
  • “Next week”  
  • “After New Years”  

If it’s important do it now. If not, wipe it off your list and forget about it.  

Stop lying to yourself and everyone else.  

There’s no perfect time.  

It never gets easier.  

You’ll never be free of stress and anxiety. 

Stop wishing for it to be easier and embrace the hard work.  

It’s time to execute today.

Okay, now for a delicious recipe.

Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet with Bacon

The average person eats bacon 18 times per year.

I'd say the average person can do better.


๐Ÿ‘‰12 oz. of bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces

๐Ÿ‘‰Additional bacon fat, lard, ghee or coconut oil

๐Ÿ‘‰5 cups diced sweet potatoes (about a ½-inch dice)

๐Ÿ‘‰4 cups diced zucchini

๐Ÿ‘‰1 cup chopped onion

๐Ÿ‘‰1 red bell pepper, chopped

๐Ÿ‘‰6 large eggs

๐Ÿ‘‰Black pepper to taste


In a 12-inch cast iron skillet, cook the bacon pieces over medium low heat until crisp.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the cooked bacon from the pan. Set aside. There should be enough rendered bacon fat to coat the entire bottom of the skillet, about โ…› inch deep.

If your bacon did not render this much fat, add additional bacon fat, lard, ghee or coconut oil to your skillet until there is โ…›” of fat.

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Increase heat to medium high and carefully place the diced sweet potatoes in the hot oil.

Cook the sweet potatoes without stirring until the bottom of the cubes start to turn golden brown (this can take several minutes).

Stir and cook until the cubes just start to soften.

Increase heat to high and add the zucchini, onion and bell pepper to the skillet, cook until the vegetables are just starting to soften.

Stir in bacon pieces, remove from heat.

Make 6 wells in the potato and veggie mixture, break one egg into each well.

Place skillet in the oven and bake for 9-14 minutes, or until eggs are set.

Serve immediately.
