Why Make This Recipe

Ingredients Needed

  • Olive oil – for cooking the veggies. Avocado oil works well too.
  • Sweet Potato – the base of our sweet potato hash
  • Bell Pepper – I like to use red bell pepper but use any color you’d like.
  • Red onion – for flavor and a little crunch.
  • Garlic – Ideally use freshly minced garlic for the best aromatics.
  • Kale – I like using lacinato kale but feel free to use any kind of kale.
  • Spices – Chili powder, smoked paprika, ground cumin
  • Salt + Black Pepper – add more or less to taste and sodium preferences.
  • Eggs – to round out the dish and add a little protein

How to Make Sweet Potato Hash

STEP 1: ROAST SWEET POTATOES

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease your cast-iron skillet with olive oil. Add sweet potato and toss with chili powder, paprika, cumin and a 1/4 tsp salt and a half of pepper. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender.

STEP 3: BAKE EGGS

Make 4-5 wells in your hash and crack eggs directly into them. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until eggs are cooked to desired doneness (whites should all be cooked). Serve immediately with desired toppings.

*Topping Suggestions

  • Cheese – sprinkle with crumbled feta or goat cheese
  • Hot Sauce – this homemade jalapeno hot sauce is always a good idea!
  • Pickled Jalapenos – can’t go wrong with a sprinkling of pickled jalapenos
  • Skhug – a Yemeni hot sauce recipe. Love the middle eastern flavors this sauce adds!
  • Avocado – sweet potatoes with avocado are always a delicious addition to brunch.
  • Fresh herbs – fresh parsley or cilantro!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I leave out the eggs?

Absolutely. If you’d prefer to serve this sweet potato hash without the eggs just leave them out and allow the hash to cook in the oven for the same amount of time without the eggs. It’s a perfect brunch side dish!

Can I use another protein?

For sure. If you’d like to add some breakfast sausage you most definitely can. Bacon is also a great addition! For plant-based I recommend using black beans or chickpeas.

Can I use different veggies?

Yes! Feel free to sub in different vegetables in place of the red bell pepper and kale. Other mixed greens like spinach or chard or even heartier veggies like brussel sprouts or broccoli are all delicious substitutions.

Do I have to use a cast-iron skillet?

Nope! You can also cook this sweet potato hash on a baking sheet or casserole dish.

Is this recipe gluten-free?

It is! This recipe is safe for consumption if you’re gluten-free or celiac.

Storage Instructions

I’ll be honest, this sweet potato hash is served best right from the oven however you can store leftovers in the refrigerator for several days.

Reheating Instructions: microwave or heat on stove top. Careful not to overcook the eggs.
