RECIPE: Grain-Free Breakfast Nachos

In our house, we take Sunday Brunch verrrrrry seriously.

We’re always on the hunt for new ideas and ways to spice up the usual breakfast spread, but unfortunately, there’s usually a huge emphasis on bread items.

As someone with a barley allergy, I try to avoid grains as much as possible because there’s often a very uncomfortable feeling that follows consumption (read: digestive issues, bloat and feeling way too full).

Luckily, I’m fairly decent at finding ways to turn my favorite dishes into a dope and delicious grain-free option.


Serves 2-3 people


-3 medium sweet potatoes

-1 cup shredded mexican cheese

-1 jalepeno

-1 Fresno chili

-1 bunch green onions

-5 eggs, scrambled

-1 package bacon

-1-2 limes

-1 bunch cilantro

-OPTIONAL: Sour cream and salsa for dipping


Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2: Slice sweet potatoes into rounds, approximately 1/8″ thick. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange sweet potato rounds in a single layer. Coat with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 20-30 minutes.

Step 3: While sweet potato rounds bake, prepare all your produce. Slice the jalepeno and Fresno chili, chop the green onions, rough chop a handful of cilantro and cut the limes into wedges.

Step 4: Heat a skillet on medium-high heat. Once hot, add bacon and cook until crispy. Once cooked, remove from pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels (to drain excess grease). Allow bacon to cool.

Step 5: Roughly chop the bacon.

Step 6: Remove sweet potato rounds from oven once slightly crisp and coat with half the shredded cheese. Place back in the oven for 5 minutes.

Step 7: While the cheese melts, use a medium skillet to cook your scrambled eggs. Fried eggs would also be dope. Add the remaining shredded cheese to your eggs.

Step 8: Remove nachos from oven and add your scrambled eggs and bacon. Top with jalepeno slices, Fresno chili slices, green onions, cilantro and lime wedges. Add a scoop of sour cream and a scoop of salsa to the pan, and enjoy family style!
