Can this be made with the red skin kumara?

haven't but can't see why not

Cheers Pam...I did see that so should have been slightly more specific...could probably do most of that apart from the 5 eggs. Chooks are off the lay at the moment and as big egg eaters I only have two at the moment so not sure what I could use instead. Got heaps of kumara hence me asking the question and thought I might try something new.
