Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables ever. There are so many ways to enjoy them from Candied Sweet Potatoes (One Pot) to traditional Mashed Sweet Potatoes (One Pot). I am always looking for new ways to add them to my family meals and constantly developing new recipes.
Today’s version can be enjoyed as breakfast, brunch, lunch or even a Thanksgiving side dish.
How to make sweet potato hash?
- Prepare pan– Spread sweet potatoes, onions and peppers in a large baking tray.
- Add oil and seasonings– Drizzle oil, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and then toss everything until is fully coated.
- Bake– The best temperature is 400 degrees F for about 12 minutes. It will only be partially cooked.
- Add eggs- Remove tray from oven and toss everything. Make four spaces and add eggs in each empty space.
- Bake again– Cook for another 8-10 minutes or until potatoes and eggs are cooked through.
- Enjoy- Garnish with parsley, toss some bacon (optional) and dig in!
What to serve with sweet potato hash recipe?
It’s typically enjoyed on its own. However, you can also serve it with biscuits, dinner rolls, breadsticks or toast to make it more filling.
Is this the same as sweet potato hash browns?
No. Hash browns are typically made with shredded potatoes and when they are baked, they are crispier than diced potatoes. Basically, the texture and appearance is different. However, both are commonly served for breakfast and taste similar.
Sweet potato breakfast hash variations
Add meat- Such as sausages, ground beef, chicken, bacon, ham, turkey, especially from leftover Thanksgiving Turkey (One Pan).
Add mushrooms– This adds a nice, earthy element and are a good protein source for vegetarians.
Add canned beans– Make sure to drain and rinse them. Chickpeas can be used too.
Add other vegetables– Such as frozen veggies or spinach, kale, brussel sprouts, carrots e.t.c. Some people even add diced apples.
Add other herbs and spices– I used Italian seasoning but you can use other spice blends such as Mexican taco seasoning, Indian curry powder, Cajun seasoning, ranch seasoning, bbq seasoning e.t.c.
Garnish options– Fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, chives, green onions or cooked crumbled bacon.
Omit eggs– If you don’t like them, just don’t add them. This will also turn them into a delicious Thanksgiving side dish.
Tips and Techniques
Do have to peel sweet potato skin? Can you eat potato skin? It’s a personal choice. I didn’t do it this time but some people love the baked, crispy skin.
How to peel and cut sweet potatoes? Using a potato peeler is best way to peel them. To cut them, use a sharp knife and sturdy cutting board. Cut them in half lengthwise and then dice them into smaller 1 inch pieces.
Can you eat sweet potato and egg together? Yes, of course. It is perfect if you want to eat it for breakfast.
Choose the right potatoes- Make sure the skin is firm, smooth, even-toned and there are no “dents.”
Line tray with foil paper– Because this makes clean up easy.
Cut potatoes in small similar sizes– Because this allows even baking and quick baking too.
Space out sweet potatoes in pan- Because this will allow them to cook evenly and help them become crisp. Make sure they are not overlapping.
