1medium or large sweet potatopeeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes (about 2 cups)
1/2lbmild pork sausage
1/2medium onionabout 1/2 cup
1/2red bell pepper
In a large skillet, preferably cast iron, cook crumbled sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Move the sausage to one side of the skillet.
Tilt the skillet so the sausage drippings will coat the skillet. Add the sweet potatoes to the skillet. Stir to coat in the grease and cook 5 minutes.
Add the peppers and onions. Sprinkle with the garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Stir.
Cook uncovered for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, adding the butter as needed to keep the vegetables from sticking. Cook and stir until the sweet potatoes are cooked through (not mushy) and the peppers and onions are crisp tender.
Crack 4 eggs over the sausage and vegetable mixture, one in each "corner" of the pan.
Cover with a lid and cook about 5 minutes (or longer) until the egg has reached your preferred doneness.
