This spicy goat cheese and sweet potato egg skillet recipe is elevated by adding spicy pepperino chili-infused olive oil. A healthy and flavorful recipe!
I distinctly remember the first time I tasted real olive oil. I was in Italy in college and it was my first night, in a plaza in Milan. The complexity of the flavors and the, well goodness, of it is something I’ll never forget. I definitely have Italy flashbacks when I have good olive oil. It’s one of those ingredients that is worth spending a few extra dollars on to make sure you get the good stuff.
My current obsession is infused olive oils. Currently, we are using a pepperino olive oil – infused with chili pepper, garlic & rosemary. Pat and I have been using it like crazy! I finally had a weekend off after two straight weeks in the hospital and we celebrated by having a lazy morning at home, complete with breakfast. We made this spicy goat cheese and sweet potato egg skillet and elevated it a notch with a splash of Pepperino olive oil. I’ve been using it instead of my normal olive oil whenever I get a chance. It has the perfect amount of heat without that in-your-face sensation that adding hot sauce gives.Print
