Sharon’s Expert Tips:
- This recipe can easily be stretched to make four servings with the addition of two more eggs.
- The times as shown for baking the skillet in the oven assumes you like your eggs “over easy” with a runny yolk! I like my yolks hard, so I leave mine in the oven for a few more minutes. In any event, oven temperatures vary widely so start checking your eggs at about six minutes to ensure they are cooked how you like them.
- This recipe works best with a “well-seasoned” cast iron skillet. However, any oven-proof skillet will work as well.
- Try to cut the sweet potatoes and apples into the same size cubes. If the cubes are larger than 3/4 inch, they will take a little more time to cook; if they are smaller, they will take less time than the recipe specifies.
- You can certainly substitute another apple variety for the Granny Smith, but I like the firmer texture and tartness to contrast with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes.
- I always have frozen cranberries in my freezer. If you don’t have them, you can substitute dried cranberries or Craisins, or you can leave them out altogether.
- If you don’t have fresh thyme, you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme.
