Sweet Potato Hash


Sweet Potato Hash

What’s that? You don’t have time to make breakfast ever? Me either. I’m the QUEEN of running out the door and eating dry brown rice cakes while simultaneously trying to answer work emails on my morning commute. All. While. Driving. I know, I know…you would think after two cell phone tickets I’d get the point. But I haven’t and I might need an intervention.

But this sweet potato hash. Wowza, where to begin. It’s delicious? It’s delicious AND healthy? Let’s just say I don’t feel guilty whatsoever after consuming a heaping plate. It’s also great for you paleo lovers out there (I know you all live off of sweet potatoes)!!Sweet Potato Hash

I have to make this for dinner because as I mentioned above I have 0 time in the morning. I’m lucky if I get out the door with mascara on because application usually happens in the bathroom at work. But I have an hour commute. So can you blame me?

ENOUGH ABOUT MY COMMUTE. This recipe is super versatile. You can really toss in whatever fresh veggies you picked up at the Farmer’s Market recently. In this recipe, it just so happens to be brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes red onion, garlic, and bacon. Can we talk about bacon for a minute? I realize it’s trendy right now. But honestly I didn’t really fall in love with it’s versatility until this year. It seriously makes any dish delish…but you already know that!

I even might suggest cooking this up the night before and then reheating it in the morning for a quick{ish} breakfast. Just toss a fried or poached egg on top and voila! Doesn’t prepping things the night before make you feel organized? Yeah, I need to do that more often.

    UPDATE: I’ve made this recipe twice now, and it was delicious both times! It’s surprisingly versatile. The first time I made it, I swapped broccoli for brussel sprouts and added some cheese on top. The second time, I used hard-boiled eggs and snap peas. This is a great catch-all for whatever you have in your fridge! :)

    Made this last nite with a few changes. Used 1 whole yellow onion, doubled the brussel sprouts and garlic, added maybe 1Tbls of brown sugar (must have) and then pan fried 4 apple chicken sausages (sliced into 1″ slices). Holy cow!! This was awesome. Really healthy breakfast which a great carb count to start the day off especially for weight loss. Awesome recipe, I will definitely be mixing this into my breakfasts each week for awhile. Thanks for sharing!!
