This comfort-food is easy, tasty and healthy. Great for lunch at work, car camping, and showy enough for guests. It can be enjoyed simply with the two main ingredients of just the sweet potato and egg, or garnish with purpose or with leftover odds and ends that need to be used up. For the photo: bacon, scallions, cherry tomatoes, and seasoned with pepper were used.
