PLACE sweet potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and cook until a fork will easily pierce potatoes (about 5 to 7 minutes). Drain.
LINE a plate with paper towels. In a heavy 10-inch cast iron skillet, cook bacon until crispy.
USE a slotted spoon to remove bacon from skillet and drain on lined plate.
REMOVE all but 1 tablespoon of bacon grease from the skillet and place it over medium high heat. Add red onions, red peppers and celery and cook until the vegetables start to soften (about 2 minutes). Add sweet potatoes and cook until they just start to turn brown on one side (about 4 minutes more).
CRUMBLE bacon into potato mixture. Season with thyme, basil, salt and pepper. Stir in grated cheese. Keep stirring until cheese is melted and potatoes somewhat mashed. Turn the heat low and keep warm while you cook the eggs.
USE the back of a spoon to make six indentations in potato mixture. Place cooked eggs in these nests. Garnish with remaining cheese. Serve hot.
