Yield 4 Servings
Ingredients

  • 2 medium yams (06352, 55-60CT)
  • 4 slices Kunzler bacon (KNZ2660, 12/1#)
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced (00691, 50#)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced (02619, 5#)
  • sea salt (CQS032, QT) and black pepper (CQP064, GAL)
  • 4 large eggs (EGG014, 15/1DOZ, Martin’s Quality Eggs)
  • garnished with chopped sage (05318, 4OZ)

Method

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees. Poke yams with a knife a couple times then place directly onto oven rack. Cook for 40-45 minutes until soft. Remove and let cool.
  • In a large skillet, fry bacon until crispy. Remove and toss in onion and garlic in leftover bacon grease. Cook for about 5-7 minutes until onion is translucent.
  • After bacon cools, cut into small pieces.
  • Once yams are cool, cut lengthwise then scoop out the middle of the yam.
  • Mash yam into skillet. If it is a little under cooked, cover and cook for 10 more minutes.
  • Stir in salt, pepper and half the chopped bacon. Place yams on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Scoop mash into potato shells then create a large divot for the egg. You will want to make sure the divot is big enough to fit the egg.
  • Break one egg into each divot then sprinkle with remaining bacon bits. Cook for 15 minutes or until yoke is set. Garnish with chopped sage and enjoy.
