Active: 40 min Total: 1 hr
Roast sweet potatoes and then fill them with scrambled eggs and crumbled bacon for a hearty and flavorful base to this paleo-friendly breakfast-for-dinner.
Smarts: For something different, balsamic vinegar, honey, and lemon juice add sweet and sour flavors to tonight's fruit salad. If you prefer to skip the extra flavors, serve your fruit salad without the dressing.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C.
  2. Rub halved sweet potatoes on all sides with some cooking oil. Place potatoes cut-side down on a sheet pan. Transfer to oven and roast until potatoes are fork-tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. When potatoes are about halfway done roasting, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and saute until bacon is crisp, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. When bacon is crisp, transfer it to a paper towel-lined plate and drain off all but 1 Tbsp / 15 mL of bacon grease from the skillet and return it to heat.
  5. To skillet add garlic and spinach and saute until spinach is wilted (you can cover the pan with a lid to help speed this along), 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Move spinach to one side of the skillet and pour eggs into the other side. Gently scramble eggs, folding in spinach as the eggs begin to cook, until eggs are cooked to your liking, 5 to 6 minutes. Season eggs with some salt and pepper. Move eggs off heat.
  7. Place sweet potatoes, cut-side up, on serving plates. Gently mash some butter into the sweet potatoes with a fork.
  8. Serve scrambled eggs over sweet potatoes with bacon crumbled over top (or serve them separately if you prefer). Enjoy with fruit salad on the side.

We made this as a Saturday brunch, and it was fantastic. We had a few cherry tomatoes and added those to the top of the pizzas at the end, which I think made a nice extra bit of color and flavor. As others have said, our naan got quite crispy - I think I gave them too long on the first go to crisp up, so then when we put them back in to melt the cheese, it ended up going a little over the top

Yummy! More filling than expected. Kids couldn’t finish and turned the leftovers into breakfast next day!

Didn't do the fruit salad. We liked the naan pizza, but it's SO easy to burn the edges of the naan...need to watch is more closely next time or maybe try the low setting on the broiler? Not sure.

I used a pre-made cauliflower crust instead of naan, and the basil substitute for mint in the fruit salad was a delicious suggestion.
