Sweet Potato Love

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods. They have so many delicious applications and can easily be used for just about any meal of the day. You can almost always find a bag of them in my kitchen (thank you Trader Joes for always stocking reasonably priced sweet potatoes!).

I’ve been wanting to play around with creating a hash lately, and I just love how pretty it is when it is cooked with an egg. It’s kinda like those recipes where they cut a whole in a piece of bread for an egg, just with sweet potatoes!

 One Pan Goodness

You gotta love a dish that doesn’t make a mess in the kitchen. One of my favorite parts of this dish is that it all is cooked in one pan.

I started with the ground sausage and fried it up in my cast iron skillet. The maple in the sausage isn’t overpowering at all. Adds just a slight bit of sweetness. There isn’t a lot of greases, but it was just enough to brown my potatoes in and add a lot of flavors! If you like a little sweet with your breakfast, you have to try these Fluffy Cottage Cheese Pancakes from Food Faith Fitness.


Brinner Anyone?

On top of being perfect for breakfast, this Gluten Free Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash is perfect for dinner! I love topping it with a little bit of queso fresco for that salty bite and some cilantro for an added flavor profile. Feel free to add in some peppers, I’m sure they would taste great, but I’m not a huge pepper fan.

While this dish is super easy, do make sure your potatoes are cooked before adding the eggs. They don’t take very long to set, depending on how runny you like them.

Another important tip: Do not grab the handle of your cast iron pan. Even when you are sauteeing on the stove, the whole pan gets hot. They make these fancy little covers. After the second degree burns I received last Valentine’s Day while using my cast iron skillet, I strongly suggest investing in them. I may be the only one who will admit to a mistake like that, but I am sure others have done it!

I hope you enjoy this Sweet Potato Hash! If you’re looking for more great potato hashes, you got to try the SouthWestern Sweet Potato Hash with Cilantro Pesto from A MindFull Mom, yum!

Another great use of sweet potatoes is this Healthy Sweet Potato Bread from Salted Plains.
