Sweet Potato & Sausage Hash

Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash | Cooking on the Front Burner

How does brunch sound to you?  The weekend is here, it's the 12th and the #12 blogger group is here with savory breakfast dishes!  There are so many dishes to choose from and I'm sharing this Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash.  It makes a great side dish, and to enjoy it as a complete meal, top it with an egg of your choice.  Pretty tasty, right? Keep reading to see what the others made this month. I think these recipes are calling your name!

The timing was perfect for me to make this dish last weekend.  My daughter, her husband and the grandkids came for a weekend visit.  I had planned to make this for just "us" but I always love when I can make a dish, feed others and get some reviews on what I'm making.  This time in the kitchen I had my son-in-law on chop duty and that made the prep work faster.  He even cuts onions without crying - that is something I can't do, as just a few slices in, my eyes are all teared up.  It was great having help so we could get down to eating quicker!  As mentioned, I topped these some easy over eggs, added a couple slices of toast and breakfast was served!  With Easter and Mother's Day coming up, this would be a great recipe to have on hand. 

Ok now for a funny but true story - the DIY Guy loves hash but I mean the stuff that comes in cans like Hormel and I personally can't stand the site of it or the smell.  He says it tastes great but I will never bring myself to try it.  I've never even cooked it up for him.  He usually makes it when I'm not around - what a guy!  But I do like homemade hash like today's recipe and actually he does too though I'm not asking which one he likes better.  I think I would win though :)
