WHAT YOU NEED

2 skillets (one that is oven-friendly, cast iron preferred)

Spatula

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a cast iron skillet with cooking spray and add sweet potatoes. Roast for 10–15 minutes as you complete step 2.
  2. As the sweet potatoes roast in the oven, brown the turkey in a skillet on the stove. Add the chopped onions, bell peppers, and zucchini to the browned turkey. Stir in spices and continue to cook until the vegetables are soft.
  3. Remove sweet potatoes from the oven and give them a toss. Add turkey and veggies mixture on top of the sweet potatoes. Evenly distribute it on the skillet.
  4. Using a spoon or spatula, create four small wells in the vegetable mix, one in each quarter of the pan. Crack an egg into each well and put the skillet back in the oven. Bake for an additional 5–7 minutes or until egg whites are no longer clear.
