  • 4 ½-inch-thick slices sweet potato from half of a fat, uniformly round sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil or butter
  • teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Whole30 breakfast sausage patties recipe in notes - patties made from ¼ cup sausage
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ avocado per sandwich, peeled and sliced, optional

For the Chipotle Mayo

  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powdered
  • ¼ teaspoon chipotle pepper powdered
  • 1 pinch salt to taste


Cook Whole30 Breakfast Sandwiches

  • Heat 1 tablespoon ghee in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add sliced sweet potatos and sprinkle with half of cinnamon and a pinch or two of salt. Cook about 5 minutes or until browning a bit. Flip and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon and salt. Cook another 4-5 minutes or until evenly browned on both sides.
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tablespoon ghee in cast-iron skillet and add sausage patties. Cook about 3-4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Move sweet potato slices and sausage to make room for eggs, then crack eggs in pan and fry about 2 1/2 minutes per side. Don't overcook. Season eggs with salt. 

Make Quick Chipotle Mayonnaise

  • In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for chipotle mayonnaise. Stir very well. 

Assemble Whole30 Breakfast Sandwiches

  • To assemble, layer one sweet potato round, then sausage, then egg.
    If using avocado, fan out avocado slices on top of egg and top with one more sweet potato round.
    If using chipotle mayonnaise, spread on inside of one more sweet potato round and place on top of egg.
