Brunch Pizza

Crust (preheat oven to 350°F)

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. salt

Grate sweet potato into bowl. Add oil, cumin and salt, mix well. Grease 12″ round pan with sides, spread sweet potato mix on pan pressing down with hands to pack well making sure to build up sides a bit. Bake in preheated oven for 15 – 20 min. While crust is baking make filling.

Filling (This filling can be doubled)

  • 1/2 Spanish onion sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped fine
  • 1/2 cup corn fresh or frozen
  • 1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • ———
  • 6 – 8 eggs depending on size
  • Grated cheese to top (optional)

In a hot pan add approx. 1 Tbsp. oil and saute onions and garlic for a few minutes until soft, add corn, beans and seasonings and continue to cook for approx. 5 minutes stirring often. With a potato masher, slightly crush beans. Remove from pan and cool. (I will quite often make a double batch of this filling and use it in wraps, make it into veggie burgers, use it in burrito bowls etc.)

In a bowl whisk 6 – 8 eggs and add approx. 1 1/2 cups of cooled filling. Remove crust from oven and pour mixture over it, return to oven for about 10 minutes or until eggs are set. Remove from oven and top with your favorite cheese. Return to oven just long enough to melt cheese. Remove from oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting.

Here is my recipe for Baked Beans

  • 1 lb (454g) dried beans(cover with water and soak for 3 hrs or over night)
  • Drain and discard water. Place soaked beans in a pot covered with fresh water. Add 1 tsp baking soda. Bring to boil, and simmer till tender, this will not take long, approx 15 min. A sure test is to spoon some out and blow on them. If skin cracks they are ready. Once again drain water. At this point they are ready for slow cooker or oven. If using slow cooker start on high. If using oven set at 300*F.
  • While beans are simmering; Put the following in slower cooker or baking crook.
  • 1 cup water (to start)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 4 slices bacon (diced) (optional)
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 3/4 cup of date puree
  • Once beans are ready, add and just barely cover with water. Cook for approx 3 hrs, (or until they reach the point that you prefer), checking half way through cooking time.
  • I find with using date puree the beans take less time to cook.
  • Note changing water every time will make beans easier to digest.
