--- Cook Whole30 Breakfast Sandwiches ---
Heat 1 tablespoon ghee in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add sliced sweet potatos and sprinkle with half of cinnamon and a pinch or two of salt. Cook about 5 minutes or until browning a bit. Flip and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon and salt. Cook another 4-5 minutes or until evenly browned on both sides.
Place sausage ingredients in a large bowl and mix very well, using your hands. Form into patties.
Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tablespoon ghee in cast-iron skillet and add sausage patties. Cook about 3-4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Move sweet potato slices and sausage to make room for eggs, then crack eggs in pan and fry about 2 1/2 minutes per side. Don't overcook. Season eggs with salt.
--- Make Quick Chipotle Aioli ---
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for chipotle aioli. Stir very well.
--- Assemble Whole30 Breakfast Sandwiches ---
To assemble, layer one sweet potato round, then sausage, then egg. If using avocado, fan out avocado slices on top of egg and top with one more sweet potato round. If using chipotle aioli, spread on inside of one more sweet potato round and place on top of egg.
