This sweet potato hash recipe is a delicious combination of flavors for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Just 6 ingredients in this healthy meal!
My husband and I went out to breakfast at a local diner a few months ago. I didn’t have high hopes about the place, but I was pleasantly surprised. There was a sweet potato hash and eggs dish on the menu that included grass-fed beef. I gave it a try, and it was so delicious! That meal was much better than what I’d usually expect from a diner.
This sweet potato hash recipe is my own version of that dish. The sausage is so flavorful that you don’t even need any salt or spices. The vegetables stand on their own, and the sweet potatoes give such a nice contrast to the savory ingredients in this dish.
I love breakfast for dinner, and this is a great healthy option for our menu. It also makes a hearty addition to a brunch spread. My whole family loves this dish, so I’ll be coming back to it often.
In this recipe, I use a combination of sweet potatoes and white potatoes. You can substitute all sweet potatoes if you’d prefer, and season it with a bit of fresh herbs if your sausage isn’t very seasoned.
Sweet Potato Hash Recipe
- 1 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes peeled and chopped
- 1/2 lb white potatoes peeled and chopped
- 1 lb mild sausage casings removed and broken into pieces
- 1 small onion diced
- 1 yellow pepper chopped
- 8 eggs
- In a large pot with a steamer basket, steam the potatoes until tender but still firm, about 10 to 15 minutes. (Alternately, you can roast them in a 375 degree oven until tender.)
- While the potatoes are cooking, remove the sausage from the casings and chop it up. Place the sausage pieces in a very large skillet. Cook over medium heat, moving the sausage pieces around with a spatula and breaking them up a bit. Once the sausage is browned and cooked through, remove it from the skillet but leave the grease. Add the onions to the skillet and cook over medium-low heat for a minute, then add the yellow peppers to the skillet. Cook for a few more minutes, until the peppers are crisp-tender. At this point, return the sausage to the skillet and add the cooked sweet potatoes. Cook everything together over medium heat for a couple minutes in the skillet to brown the potatoes.
- While the hash is finishing up in the big skillet, cook the eggs in a separate skillet. Fried eggs or sunny side up eggs are great options for this dish. Serve warm.
