Grate sweet potatoes using the large portion of your grater or pulse in high powered blender until you get a fine consistency.
In a large pan or skillet, cook bacon pieces on medium to medium-high heat until browned and crisp, turning to brown evenly.
Remove bacon with slotted spoon or spatula once finished and set aside.
Add onions and peppers to bacon grease and cook until soft.
Push to side of pan.
Add the sweet potatoes and cinnamon to the pan adding a bit more grease if necessary.
Give the potatoes a quick mix in order to coat.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Let sit for about 5 minutes without stirring in order to start browning.
Continue to cook and occasionally stir until sweet potatoes are tender, roughly 10 minutes.
Once the sweet potatoes have become tender and slightly crisp, add the bacon, onions & peppers, combine thoroughly.
Meanwhile crack and fry your eggs to your desired consistency.
