You can’t go wrong when eggs and peameal bacon get together and the addition of sweet potato adds a savoury touch to this classic comfort breakfast.


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°F).

In a medium bowl, combine sweet potato, peameal bacon, 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil, pepper, salt and nutmeg. Scatter in a 10-inch (25 cm) ovenproof skillet. Bake for 15 minutes.

In the same bowl, stir together tomatoes, garlic, thyme and remaining oil; set aside.

Remove skillet from oven. Flip potatoes and bacon; scatter tomato on top of mixture. With a spoon, make 4 wells and 1 crack egg into each. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until eggs are cooked through or have reached desired doneness.

Avocado Purée: In a small food processor, purée avocado, yogurt and chives. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with breakfast bake.

Tip: Add maple sausage instead of peameal for a different flavour.
Tip: This recipe can easily be doubled and made on a baking sheet for brunch entertaining.
Tip: Kick up the flavour of the Avocado Purée by adding 1 tbsp of finely diced Jalapeno peppers.
