- Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
- Use a 25 cm ovenproof pan (no plastic handles).
- Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into1-2 cm cubes. Sauté them in a pan with 2 tablespoons butter, salt and pepper for at least 5 minutes, until they turn golden.
- When ready, remove them from the pan and set on a plate lined with paper towels. Set aside until needed.
- Wipe the pan with some paper towels. Cut the bacon into 2 cm strips and sauté them in the pan. When it starts to turn golden, add the butter (reserve 1 tablespoon of butter to add to the pan at the end) and the chopped sage leaves.
- When the butter melts, transfer to a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside until the bacon releases all of its aroma.
- Crack the eggs open in a bowl. Add some salt and grated gruyere.
- Add the milk
- The bacon and cheese are salty enough on their own, so be careful as to how much salt you will add.
- In another bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Add the egg mixture and whisk with a fork.
- Add the bacon-sage mixture and mix.
- Add the reserved tablespoon of melted butter to the pan and add the sweet potato cubes in one layer on the bottom of the pan.
