Paleo Sweet Potato Scramble

Easy Paleo Sweet Potato Scramble


This fast, easy, and highly nutritious Paleo Sweet Potato Scramble is an excellent way to incorporate more nutrient dense sweet potatoes into your paleo menu plans. It is also perfect for using any leftover sweet potatoes you may already have in the fridge. Just a few simple ingredients and you have a protein, fiber, vitamin, and healthy fats filled meal that will keep you going for hours.


On the weekend, before a busy work week, I usually make a big pot of parboiled or Basmati rice, and roast several white, sweet potatoes, and rutabagas. (for the resistant starch benefits of these cooked, then cooled foods). This way, I have them on hand, fully cooked and ready to use in recipes like Paleo Sweet Potato Scramble. After they’re cooked, I just need to add a meat, fish or egg entree, or paleo sauce topping, for a quick and easy meal.


Anyone who is telling you that white rice and potatoes “are not paleo”, is quoting an old school idea and has missed the boat on getting enough paleo-like soluble fiber in the form of resistant starch. Don’t let them ruin your gut health. Our microbiota in our guts need the special form of fiber found in resistant starch for our physical and mental health.


 Paleo Sweet Potato Scramble

Paleo Sweet Potato Scramble

  • Prep time:  5 min.
  • Cook time:  10 min.
  • Servings:  4 large


  • 3 TBS. butter, ghee, bacon fat, olive oil, tallow or other oil of choice
  • ½ cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cups pre-cooked orange or white sweet potato, cut into small chunks (I like using a mix of both types)
  • 8 pieces of crisp bacon, crumbled, or 1 cup pre-cooked bacon crumbles
  • 8 eggs, well beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste


(Payton’s Paleo 30 Day Challenge friendly)

1. In a large frying pan, saute onion in oil, until translucent.

2. Add to the same frying pan, cut up cooked sweet potato chunks and bacon. Stir until everything is fully warmed.

3. Pour beaten eggs on top of everything in the pan. Stir and turn continuously until the eggs are cooked. Season with salt and pepper as desired.


This simple scramble is rich in healthy saturated fat, protein, Vitamin A, C, D, all B vitamins, potassium, manganese, selenium, and beta-carotene.


I personally love this Paleo Sweet Potato Scramble with a glass of organic carrot juice on the side.
