I add apple with the sweet potatoes to bring in a little sweet acidity that pairs really well with the bacon and maple syrup. You can certainly omit the bacon for a vegetarian option, if you still eat eggs. The baby arugula adds a touch of bitter to balance the sweetness of the syrup and yogurt. I prefer to top it with an over-easy egg as the creamy runny eggs melds everything together so well. Guaranteed winner!
