- one tablespoon butter or olive oil
- one onion, diced
- two sausages (or 4 breakfast sausages)
- two medium sweet potatoes, diced
- quarter teaspoon crushed chilies (optional)
- quarter teaspoon sea salt
- four eggs

3. Remove the sausage from their casing and add them to the pan with the onion. Using a spoon or spatula, gently break up the sausage meat and cook gently until sausage is browned. If you want to add the crushed chillies, add them in at this point.

8. Transfer the skillet to the oven for 10-15 minutes until eggs are cooked to your liking.
