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!

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 new First Fresh Chicken Sausage Maple Breakfast Sausage Links. I just popped them out of their casing (which is pork free, in case your wondering) 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 grease because First Fresh uses white meat, but it was just enough to brown my potatoes in and add a lot of flavors!

On top of being perfect for breakfast, this 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 just don’t like them.

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, especially 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 your looking for more great potato hashes, you got to try the SouthWestern Sweet Potato Hash with Cilantro Pesto from A MindFull Mom, yum! Let me know in the comments what your favorite breakfast dish is!

  1. This is perfect for an at home brunch! I love making hash, it’s so fun and gorgeous. I especially love your sweet potato hash, that orange from the sweet potato really makes the dish pop!

  2. I love a good hash! And sweet potato goes so well with breakfast sausage. I can never be reminded often enough to not grab the cast iron handle without a hot pad. Too many times I have reached into the stove, seen a handle and grabbed it! Ack! Not good 🙂
