The Peach State isn’t actually the largest peach producer in the US.*
Not that it stops me from eating copious amounts while they’re in season.
Now that I type this, I realize I should have added peanut flour too! Tomorrow is another day…
One of the slightly strange adds was sweet potato. I cubed it and sautéed it quickly before making the scramble. It was so easy! Adding the peaches at the end was just enough to warm and caramelize the natural sugars a bit. Then there was the basil, which was a nice, herb-y accent to give the dish a bit more “pop.”
And bacon… because everything is better with bacon. Really, the savory-salty bacon sprinkles made every bite fun. Sounds strange, but trust me. It was good.
*In case you were wondering, California is the largest peach producer in the U.S. South Carolina is the largest in the East.
Peach Sweet Potato Scramble
- Coconut (or other) oil to grease pan
- 1/2 C diced sweet potato
- 1/2 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- Shake of cayenne (optional)
- 1 Peach, chopped
- Bacon, crumbled (optional)
In a lightly oiled skillet, sautee sweet potato until tender. Set aside.
Scramble together egg whites, cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne with a spoash of water (the water helps them “fluff”).
Transfer to a lightly oiled skillet and cook over medium heat until half way done (~1-2 mins). Add sweet potato, peaches, and basil. Mix and cook through.
Plate your scramble and top with additional basil and bacon sprinkles, if desired.
Note: Feta or goat cheese would also be good here to add a pop of saltiness.

And now I have to brag. I get to have dinner at Sarena‘s house tonight. Her food makes me drool.
Is there anything bacon (or vegan bacon bits) isn’t good with? It’s like peanut butter!
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
