Ready in 25 minutes

Makes 2 Servings

Ingredients:

-1 medium sweet potato, peeled and grated

-1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

-2 tsp fresh thyme

-1/4 tsp salt

-1/4 tsp black pepper

-3 tsp grapeseed oil, divided

-1 cup sliced crimini or button mushrooms

-2 large eggs

-1 cup baby spinach or kale

Instructions:

1. In a large bowl, toss together sweet potato, parmesan, thyme, salt, and pepper.

2. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook until softened, about two minutes. Remove mushrooms from skillet and add sweet potato mixture to pan. Cook until sweet potato is tender and begins to brown, about five minutes.

3. Whisk together eggs with milk, salt, and pepper (ingredients NOT listed in “ingredients” section; add to your liking) and scramble in skillet; careful not to let eggs burn and stick to skillet

4. Form sweet potato into mounds and on two serving plates, and top each with 1/2 cup mushrooms and 1/2 cup of greens; add eggs. If you are a true southerner, as I am, add a bit of ketchup to the eggs or a bit of hot sauce.
