Accidental Sweet Potatoes with Eggs

This is one of those recipes where I am once again looking through the refrigerator trying to figure out what to make for dinner.  So, this is what I came up with, and Bug liked it.

2 T butter
2 medium sweet potatoes-chopped into chunks
Any hot peppers of your choice-about 1 T dried poblano and  1 T dried Chipotle.
1 medium onion-diced
1 T Garlic
6 organic eggs-beaten, add salt and pepper to your taste
3/4 c. grated cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

I used a 10" iron skillet for this. 

Melt 1 T butter in the pan.  Add the peppers and sweet potatoes, cover, and brown the sweet potatoes over medium heat, stirring often until they are fork tender.  Put another tablespoon of butter in the pan, let it melt, then add the onion, cover the pan and let those brown some, then add the garlic.  Cover again, and let it all cook over low heat for about 10 minutes.  The potatoes with start to get pretty soft.

Pour the beaten eggs over the potatoes.  Put the lid on the pan.  Turn the stove off for about 10 minutes.  This will keep the mixture from burning on the bottom.  Then turn the stove back on low until the eggs have set on top, maybe a little runny on top.  Turn the stove off again, and add the cheese, and cover again.  Wait another 5-10 minutes.  You should be able to use a spatula to cut it into pie shaped wedges.  This makes 4 servings.
