Paleo-Friendly Eggs Over Easy with Jalapeño Sweet Potato Hash

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time5 mins


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 sweet potato - peeled
  • coconut oil Coconut oil is used often as a "good" fat on the paleo diet. If you don't have coconut oil you could use butter or vegetable oil too
  • jalapeño jarred or fresh


  • 1. Shred the sweet potato with a box grater or food processor. You don't want to shred on the finest cut but regular grated cut is best.
  • 2. Put a little of the coconut oil in the pan and heat You could use a cast iron skillet here if desired.
  • 3. Add shredded sweet potato to warm pan and cook on medium for about 15-20 minutes or until sweet potato is light brown.
  • 4. Add jalapeño to sweet potato. How much you add is up to your heat tolerance. I add about a teaspoon of jarred diced jalapeño if using fresh, use less.
  • 5. In a separate pan, cook eggs over easy.
  • 6. Add eggs on top of the sweet potato hash and serve!
