today’s breakfast: sweet potato hash


This was the first time I ever cooked with sweet potato or had it in a hash! I felt like mixing it up since I always use regular potatoes and found this recipe for sweet potato hash. There were a few revisions since I didn’t have some of the ingredients at home: I used yellow bell pepper, yellow onion & no green onions. And you can’t eat hash without some eggs! I of course had to add some fried eggs on top to complete the dish. A great, hearty breakfast to start the day! 🙂

Prep:10 min
Cook:25 min
Yield: 4 to 6 servings

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed into 1-inch cubes
6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup green onions
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Add the potatoes to a large saucepan of salted boiling water and simmer until tender. Drain and dry completely with paper towels.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the red onions, bell peppers, green onions, and garlic, and saute until tender and lightly golden, 5 to 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and remove to a bowl.

Add the remaining 4 tablespoons oil to the skillet, and then add the drained and dried sweet potatoes. Cook in a single layer, stirring occasionally, on medium heat until they are tender, about 6 minutes. Increase the heat to high and cook, without stirring, until the potatoes are golden and crisp, about 2 more minutes. Sprinkle with the smoked paprika and gently stir in the onion mixture and parsley.
