This sweet potato hash with sausage and eggs is what breakfast dreams are made of! We’ve had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. #shameless

Not only is it easy to make, in one just skillet, but it’s great for meal prep.

BTW, my 15-year-old brother says hashtags aren’t “in” anymore??

I decided to go for a southwest twist on this hash and added bell pepper, diced tomatoes, diced green chiles, and cilantro.

If you want even more southwest flavors, feel free to add in organic black beans, a squirt of lime, jalapenos, and top the hash with some grass-fed cheese.

INGREDIENTS IN SWEET POTATO BREAKFAST HASH WITH SAUSAGE

  • Onion– I used yellow onion, but you could also use white or red onion.
  • Sweet potatoes– You could also use gold potatoes, russet potatoes, or frozen hash browns for this recipe. If using hash browns, cook them separately from the sausage, and add them in at the end.
  • Grass-fed breakfast sausage– I buy my grass-fed breakfast sausage from a local farmer. I love supporting local farmers who treat their animals right! (Clean ingredient) ground breakfast sausage is hard to find at the grocery store. For this recipe, you could also use breakfast sausage links, and slice them up into bite sized pieces. Applegate is a great brand that carries organic meats. If you would rather order your meat online, ButcherBox carries breakfast sausage as well, and can deliver it to your door.
  • Seasonings: chili powder, paprika, garlic powder. Thrive market seasonings/spices are great! They are so much cheaper than buying them at the store.
  • Red or green bell pepper: choose organic. Bell peppers are on EWG’s Dirty Dozen list.
  • Diced tomatoes: I love the Thrive Market brand organic diced tomatoes because they are sustainably farmed, without all the pesticides.
  • Diced green chiles: Hatch Chile company is the best I have found. They are locally sourced and preservative free.
  • Eggs– choose pasture-raised and or organic eggs

HOW TO MAKE SWEET POTATO BREAKFAST HASH WITH SAUSAGE

  1. Cook the sweet potatoes with the garlic, and onion. Make sure there is always plenty of oil in the skillet for the potatoes to cook, so that they don’t burn.
  2. Move the sweet potatoes to one side of the skillet and brown the breakfast sausage. Reduce the heat then stir in the seasonings, bell pepper, diced tomatoes, and diced green chiles.
  3. Make 4-6 wells in the skillet and crack an egg in each. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until desired done-ness of eggs is reached.

TIPS AND VARIATIONS

  • Keep plenty of oil at the bottom of the skillet when cooking sweet potatoes so that they don’t burn.
  • Instead of cooking the sweet potatoes in the skillet, bake the sweet potatoes and add them back to the skillet once the breakfast sausage is done cooking.
  • Sub the sweet potatoes out for cubed gold, or russet potatoes. You could also make this breakfast skillet with hash browns.
  • Use ground pork, or bacon instead of breakfast sausage.
  • If you cannot tolerate eggs, simply omit the eggs. The breakfast skillet just with sweet potatoes and sausage is still amazing!

Notes

  • Baking time for eggs- Baking times may very with oven type. Check eggs at 5 minutes, 8 minutes, and 10 minutes, etc. Take the skillet out and look closely at the eggs. If the yolks jiggle, and the egg whites are runny, the eggs are not fully cooked.
  • Storing- Store breakfast hash in an airtight glass container. Keep in the fridge for up to 3-5 days.To reheat- Place breakfast hash in a glass or ceramic bowl and reheat in the microwave. You can also reheat in a skillet on low heat, but keep in mind the eggs will cook more.
