Today’s post is special because it features my very first recipe guest poster! A while back I asked for some help with my blog because I just can’t keep up my schedule with my personal chef business, blogging AND having a pregnancy that is sucking the life out of me.  Luckily there are some amazing and talented bloggers out there that were willing to contribute their amazing recipes to help me but also help my readers enjoy a variety of recipes.  Take it away, Lauren!

My name is Lauren, but my friends and family call me Lulu for short! One of my passions in life is to create dishes that will gather friends and family to my table. My belief is that meals should be shared with others, affording us the opportunity to connect with one another.

Lulu’s Table balances healthy eating for your body, and indulging for your soul…(and sanity). Through these recipes, I hope to inspire others to prepare homemade meals and to reconnect with friends and family at the table!

About this Recipe

In need of a healthy brunch idea?! Cause this is where its at! A giant dish full of sweet potatoes, eggs, and BBQ pulled chicken, all baked together in marital bliss and topped with everything GREEEEEENNNNN and wonderful in this world.
 
This recipe doesn’t require all that much effort, just a little planning ahead of time for the chick- en, but can easily be thrown together before the brunch chaos ensues. And quite frankly, this dish has been known to make frequent dinner appearances as well…because who can resist breakfast for dinner?! (I can’t help but live life on the edge at times!)
 
The base consists of sweet potato hash, a combination of cubed sweet potatoes mixed with chopped onions and some spices, which is then baked in order to soften up the veggies. Once the hash has baked, eggs are cracked directly on top and bbq pulled chicken is added before throwing it back in the oven. Last step is to top with all the goodies before devouring!
 
In order to save me some time, I make my super easy slow cooker bbq pulled chicken the day before, store in the refrigerator over night, and then add it directly to the skillet before baking the next day.
 
You’ll likely second guess this is good for you, because it’s entirely too yummy, but its actually quite nutrient dense AND gluten free ! The egg and chicken are a strong source of protein, while the sweet potatoes offer a variety of vitamins and healthy carbs. Adding avocado will provide healthy fats and increase absorption of fat-soluble vitamins found in the sweet potatoes.
 
Once ready to serve, plop that sucker in the middle of the table, and watch as everyone digs in! For the record…this totally pairs well with a nice glass of champagne or a mimosa. Just saying…
Below are some frequently asked questions to help make this dish perfect for you, your family, and your guests!

Can I modify this to be more paleo, whole30, or keto friendly?

Absolutely! Instead of using sweet potatoes, you can use one large butternut squash, which would eliminate the higher carb content you’d find in sweet potatoes. Simply dice up your but- ternut squash in place of sweet potatoes, and cook exactly the same!
Be cautious of the BBQ sauce you use to make sure it is friendly to your individual dietary needs.
 
A great option is to use The New Primal Classic BBQ Sauce 

Can I make this dish if I don’t have a cast iron skillet?

Yes! Replace the skillet with a large greased casserole dish, it will work just as well as a skillet! Everything will be cooked directly inside, so there will be no need to cook anything on stove top before baking.

Can’t tolerate spicy foods?

Add crumbled goat cheese or feta to balance out the heat from the sriracha, or omit the sriracha entirely. It will still taste fantastic! If adding cheese, add right before serving.
