You will love this Sweet Potato Hash for breakfast! It is easy to make and a great way to start your day!
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!
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 ¼" pieces. I used my mandolin (carefully!). It cuts down on the cooking time.
Breakfast is the most important and delicious meal of the day! Start yours out with this easy to make recipe
