We love eggs in our house, but some days you just want something different. I love having a big pan of this sweet potato hash in the fridge as a go-to for breakfast during the week. It makes a bunch, and you can heat and eat in the morning when you’re in a hurry. Meal prep at it’s finest!

What goes in sweet potato hash

I start with sweet potatoes, and add peppers and onions. I particularly like the proportions of this one – the right ratio of peppers and onions to sweet potatoes.

If you want to step your sweet potato hash game up a notch, try adding some garlic into the hash, or salsa and avocado on top. If you’re not burnt out on eggs, you can We call that one a “Cowboy Hash” in our house!

It’s pretty straightforward, and if you’re someone who cooks a lot, you likely don’t need a recipe for this and can wing it. That being said, there are some people out there who need a recipe, and this is for you!

How to cook a sweet potato hash

I had a friend ask me for breakfast ideas that didn’t include eggs. I make this sweet potato hash on the regular, and use it as a base with a number of variations. It’s super easy, and only requires one pan, which is awesome.

By cooking the sausage in the pan first, you get a little grease going. You can then use that to cook the potatoes, peppers, and onions. One pan, done.

Sweet potato hash variations

I like to top mine with over-easy eggs. You can add a can of diced green chilies to spice it up, or top with salsa and diced avocado.

You can scramble eggs and mix them into the hash. You can tear up some kale or spinach and toss it in at the end for a punch of greens.

Don’t be scared to experiment and find what works for you!

  1. In a large skillet, brown the breakfast sausage over medium heat. Set cooked sausage aside, leaving as much of the grease in the pan as possible.

  3. Add the bacon grease, onion, and bell pepper to the pan, sprinkle with s&p, and continue to cook until the sweet potatoes are tender all the way through, stirring frequently to ensure even cooking.

Cool story, did the cops swoop in and get your phone back? Did the dude see the cops and run?

I never feel quite satisfied by a breakfast without eggs. I love hash. Always with eggs.

I never get sick of eggs either. I love them! But apparently others don't always feel the same, so I'm working on offering some egg-less breakfast options. Womp womp. (I always just add eggs at the end!)

And no, he didn't run. They came from both directions so he had nowhere to go. They patted him down and got the phone back. They let him go, because we didn't have any proof he was the one that stole it, and he was "tryin' to do the right thing" by returning it to me (and charging me for it!) Regardless, I'm certain that this is not his first, or last, encounter with the law.
