Do you ever eat breakfast for dinner? In fact, why do we label our meals? Why can’t we eat whatever sounds appealing to us at anytime of the day or night? We all know that pizza for breakfast is delicious, as is leftover Chinese food. This Sweet Potato Hash is one of those meals that fits into any category, and can be changed to fit the ingredients that you have on hand and what you are craving at that particular moment…..

Sweet Potato Hash is the perfect throw together meal | cookingwithcurls.com

I always have sweet potatoes and onions hanging around. I happened to have a pound of ground pork in the refrigerator for a different recipe, but breakfast food was calling my name, lol

If you are following Whole 30 or Paleo, you may have already realized that finding compliant sausage at the grocery store is not easy…finding Waldo would be easier! So I took matters into my own hands and thew this meal together in about 30 minutes…..

This Sweet Potato Hash is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's also versatile enough to swap out ingredients with what you have on hand | cookingwithcurls.com

How to make Sweet Potato Hash:

Heat oil in a large skillet over Medium heat. Add the sweet potatoes and onion {and bell pepper if using}, and cook until they begin to soften, 20 to 30 minutes…..

Then grab a fork and dig in! 😉

Notes:

  • The smaller you cut your potato chunks, the faster they will cook. Mine were close to 3/4 of an inch and took almost 30 minutes. Cut into 1/2 chunks they should take about 20 minutes.
  • If you have sausage or chorizo use that instead of the ground pork and omit the seasoning.
  • For a true “sausage” taste, add fennel seeds. I do not like fennel seeds, lol
  • If you don’t like sweet potatoes, use Yukon Gold potatoes instead.
  • To change things up use ground chicken and add Herbs de Provence. Or use ground lamb and add Greek Seasoning.
  • No, doneness is not a real word…but I like it.
  • If you do not like scrambled eggs; make 4 “holes” in the potatoes and drop a broken egg into each cavity. Cover and cook until done, over easy, over hard, etc.
  • I did not have a bell pepper on hand, but felt that it was missing from the dish so I added it to the recipe.

Southwest Seasoning is my go-to seasoning, but any seasoning will work. Have fun with it, get creative. 🙂
