- 8 Whole Large Eggs
- 1/2 cup Cooked Ground Beef
- 1/2 cup Baby Portabella Mushrooms

- Beat 2 large eggs and add to the sweet potatoes. Add baking soda and yeast, mix well.
- Slowly fold in the coconut flour a few tablespoons at a time to ensure it is thoroughly worked into the batter using a cake icing spatula. Once batter forms a dough-like ball, place in the freezer for 5-7 minutes and allow the batter to set.
- Take a non-stick 9″ pie dish and lightly coat with olive oil or coconut oil spray.
- Using a “cake icing” style spatula, spread batter across the bottom of the dish and onto the sides.

- Once pie crust is complete, remove from oven and turn heat down to 350F.

- Add pre-cooked ground beef (or meat of your choice), mushrooms, and spinach to eggs. Gently fold together.
- Pour contents into pie crust.
- Bake for 25 minutes at 350F.
