eats // paleo pancetta & sun-dried tomato skillet


I'm calling this a breakfast skillet but really it's so good it could be an anytime skillet. In my house its a breakfast or blenner (breakfast as dinner ;)) skillet. You can omit or add any of the ingredient's (with the acceptation of the sweet potatoes) that's the beauty of this dish, if you enjoy eggs I suggest adding them or my favorite, egg whites.  Serve with a side of avocado & tomato slices and viola you have a tasty meal!
