Ingredients – for 4 people
Prep time – 1 to 1 1/2 hours
1 cup Hollandaise Sauce (from this recipe, thanks Simply Recipes!)
2 medium sized sweet potato
4 cups kale, veins and stems removed
4 to 6 slices of bacon
2 eggs per person
Cooking oil of your choice (butter or coconut oil are best)
Salt & pepper
Caramelize onions: do this step before you start anything else! slice onions and place in a covered heavy frying pan on low with 1/4 cup butter/coconut oil for about an hour
Preheat oven to 350
Peel sweet potato and slice into long oval slices 3/4″ thick. Coat with oil and salt and pepper, add garlic powder, rosemary, and other spices according to your tastes. Bake for about 45mins until crispy on the outside. (or less time at a higher temperature if you’re in a little bit of a time crunch, but watch them to make sure they don’t burn!)
Prepare hollandaise sauce.
Cook bacon until crispy, allow to cool, and crunch up into bacon bits.
Leaving bacon fat in the pan, sauté kale with the bacon bits until it is soft. Add a little more oil or butter if it looks dry.
Poach eggs according to your favorite method – we have silicone cups, but if you can manage that swirling water & vinegar method, have at it.
Layer sweet potato, kale, onions, eggs, and then hollandaise sauce.
Updated 11/07/13 to include the caramelized onions, which were the brain child of my friend Nanette, who suggested them when I explained that I thought this recipe sounded like it had caramel in it. She’s so awesome we invited her for boozy brunch 🙂
