  • 1 medium sweet potato (1.5 cups diced approx.)
  • 1 tablespoon of EVOO
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 2 small cloves of garlic (about 2 teaspoons peeled and chopped)
  • 1 small onion (about ⅓ cup peeled and chopped) 
  • 1 small red pepper (about 1 cup washed and chopped)
  • 1 small green pepper (about 1 cup washed and chopped)
  • 7 ounces (200 g or 1 cup) of ground beef
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of black pepper powder
  • 2 teaspoons herbes de Provence*
  • 8 eggs


  1. Preheat the oven at 350ºF (180ºC). 
  2. Peel the sweet potato and dice it into small cubes. 
  3. Place them in a 12 x 7.5-inch (30,5 x 19 cm) glass baking dish with a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  
  4. Bake them at 350ºF (180ºC) for about 30 minutes while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Prep the rest of the ingredients except the eggs: dice the bacon and the pepper, and peel and chop the onion and garlic.  
  6. Fry the diced bacon in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. You don’t need to add any oil as the bacon is already oily.
  7. Once the bacon starts releasing its oil, add the onion and garlic, and stir.
  8. Add the peppers and stir.
  9. Add the ground meat, stir and make the meat into small pieces. 
  10. Add the salt, pepper and herbes de Provençe.
  11. Continue cooking for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the meat is cooked.
  12. In a medium-size bowl, whisk the eggs. 
  13. Once the sweet potatoes are soft, take the baking dish out of the oven, add the meat mixture, the whisked eggs and stir well. 
  14. Distribute the mixture evenly in the baking dish and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the casserole comes out clean.
  15. Serve when still hot.



*Herbes de Provence is a mix of dried herbs with the main ones being savory, marjoram, rosemary, thyme, oregano.


Leave out the meat and add more veggies of your choice.


Store it in the fridge in an airtight glass container for up to 5 days and reheat it in the microwave or in the oven, or enjoy it cold if you prefer.  You can also freeze it for up to 2 months. Thaw it by leaving it in the fridge overnight and warm it up in the oven or microwave.
