One of my very favorite things to eat is breakfast, I like it morning noon and night. Luckily for me so do my kids, but I get sick of pancakes and over easy eggs from time to time. Sometimes I feel like something for breakfast that’s a little more nutrient dense and a little more refined and this is often what I end up making, my Sweet Potato Hash topped with a gently fried egg. This is pure H E A V E N y’all. I love this specifically because the sweet potatoes add a touch of savory sweetness and they’re also great for keeping you full for a long time. Plus what isn’t make better with an egg on top. I mean really. Plus its a nice light meal for the upcoming summer nights when the idea of anything heavy makes you want to die inside.
Make ahead option: I chop all the vegetables and add them to a tupperware container in the fridge. On the day pour them all into the pre-heated pan and continue on.
Sweet Potato Hash
- 1 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into a fine ¼″ dice
- 1 shallots, finely minced
- ½ red bell pepper, cut into a fine ¼″ dice
- ¼ cup fresh kale, vigorously chopped
- 1 teaspoon house seasoning
- ¼ teaspoon paprika (i like smoked)
- Pinch of dried red pepper flakes or ¼ tsp sambal if you have it
- 2 eggs
- Extra virgin olive oil & Butter
- Heat 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add in the sweet potatoes, shallot, bell pepper and spices. Cook mixture, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are cooked through and tender, about 15-18 minutes.
- Add kale into the skillet and stir thru the mixture until its slightly wilted and flecked approximately during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Taste the hash and season with additional salt or pepper if needed.
- While the has finishes cooking, heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Once hot, cook eggs per your preference. I like over easy and lightly fried. You can fry the crap out of them with the crispy edges if thats how you like your eggs 🙂
- Divide the hash and top each with an egg. At this point you can add any topping you might like if thats your thing. Some crumbled bacon would be nice, or a drizzle of spicy sirracha if you like it HOT. Go crazy, its your hash!
