the fork pierces buttery-brown-edged egg white and warm, gooey egg yolk drizzles onto crispy fried sweet potatoes scrambled with turkey sausage. who needs a diner this saturday morning? we've got it going on in this kitchen.
eggs are very important in this house; they must be properly cooked. for me, that usually means butter-crisped edges on the whites, and a soft, slightly runny but almost-creamy yolk. i had two sweet potatoes left from the week's menu; not enough to bake even "fries" for this household-of-seven. so i decided to make my own version of the "skillet" we'd order at a diner if we had the option.
peel and chop two sweet potatoes and one onion.
drizzle coconut oil and a pat of butter into a hot skillet.
add one pound of turkey sausage.
(ground turkey will work here, also; just add sage and garlic with it.)
stir and cook until sausage and potatoes are browned and onions are translucent.
set individually plated servings in oven to stay warm;
top each with an egg-over-medium.
sprinkle with chopped chives or green onion.
