Easier/Tastier Sweet Potato Tastiness

We're gonna keep this simple, baby.

Slice onions and put them in a large skillet with oil.

Add thinly sliced, washed sweet potatoes.

Mix and cook them over medium-high heat.

When cooked, add this best-ever curry powder from Penzeys Spices.

See all those amazing ingredients?! You could improvise, of course. But really, this stuff is worth the splurge.

Dice up some sharp white cheddar cheese. I found this on a whim at HyVee. Can't find it again. Woe is me.

Don't you just want to eat this up right now? No? Just me? Okay...

Once potatoes are bite-tender, put them in a bowl to cool for 10 minutes.

Then mix in 5 eggs. Again, I really like "non-tortured eggs," but whatever's in your fridge will do. The curry and cheese are strong anyway.

Add the cheese cubes.

Spread it into a greased 9x13 pan.

Bake at 400 degrees until the eggs are set. Eat and enjoy!

This also reheats really well. But it will make your office smell like curry when you microwave it. Oops.

Easier Sweet Potato Tastiness
(serves 6)

1 tbsp olive oil
2 large sweet potatoes, cut into thin slices
1 yellow onion, sliced thinly
1 tsp Maharajah curry powder

5 eggs, beaten
4 oz white cheddar, cubed

1. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sweet potato slices and the onion and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 15-20 minutes. In the last five minutes or so, sprinkle the spices in and stir until incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
2. Move the potatoes/onions to a large bowl. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Stir in eggs so that they are evenly incorporated and let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in the cheese cubes.
3. Put into greased Pyrex dish. Bake at 400 until eggs are cooked all through, about 30 minutes.
