Sweet Potato Hash

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day - or that's what I've heard! You too, right?  During the week for us it's a quick bowl of cereal and away we go to work.  On the weekends, I may still have that bowl but the DIY Guy is looking for something with more substance.  The recipe I'm sharing today came from a conversation with the administrator I work with.  She's a foodie like me and our usual Monday morning conversations go like, so how was your weekend and what did you cook?  She mentioned a sweet potato hash she's made a few times, so I decided to give it a try!


I made this last Saturday and it turned out fantastic.  I'm not quite sure if I used all the ingredients she mentioned but it definitely had no meat  (she's vegetarian).  Well, the highest compliment was made by the DIY Guy... he said he really liked it  - as it!  Wow - that's something from the meat lover.  As you can seem I did make an egg to place on top.  It was very filling!

Sweet Potato Hash

by Cooking on the Front Burner
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield about 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and diced into 1/4" pieces
  • 1/2 red pepper diced into 1/4" pieces
  • 1/2 green pepper diced into 1/4" pieces
  • 2 tablespoons diced shallots
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil
Instructions
  1. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet (I used cast iron) over medium high heat
  2. Add potatoes, peppers, shallot and spices
  3. Saute for 5 minutes stirring half way through
  4. Cover skillet and saute for 5 minutes, stirring about 3 times (this will steam the potatoes and help cook them faster)
  5. Remove cover and continue cooking for about 10 more minutes until potatoes and peppers are soft (add more olive oil if the mixture gets too dry)
  6. Note - you can also adjust the seasonings

I ended up making 2 batches - the first one was a bit on the spicy side -  I think I added too much cayenne pepper so I suggest starting with the smaller amounts and adjust to your liking.  Also I really would recommend staying with the 1/4" pieces.  I used my mandolin (carefully!).  It cuts down on the cooking time.
