It’s an undeniable fact: breakfast for dinner is awesome!
It’s also an undeniable fact: we
are mildly obsessed with love sweet potatoes.
Sweet potatoes are definitely a staple in the Martin/Dowe household. We wanted to veer away from the normal sweet potato fries that we make
at least twice a week quite often.
We went on the hunt for a new recipe to try and the sweet potato hash with sausage and eggs below caught our eyes. While it is a little time consuming, it’s worth the wait and if you’re so inclined you can
double, triple, quadruple make extra for a tasty (and easy) breakfast, lunch or dinner for your next meal…
Not to mention it’s pretty cool to just crack a few eggs over this mixture and bake it in the oven. It doesn’t take much to amuse us.
The original recipe was found over at thekitchn.com. As per usual we changed it up a little (but not that much)…
Sweet Potato Hash w/ Sausage and Eggs
- 3 Large Sweet Potatoes (cubed)
- 4 Medium Onions (diced)
- 4 Large Italian Sausage links (cooked, then diced)
- A few slices of Bacon (cooked and diced) – optional
- Olive oil (or an olive oil mister if you have one)
Preheat oven to 450F
Cube your 3 large sweet potatoes and on an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet spread evenly and bake for 20 minutes at 450F.
- Side note: We peeled two of the sweet potatoes and kept the skin on one. This of course is a personal preference. If you have an olive oil mister spray the aluminum foil first and then spray the sweet potatoes. If you don’t have a mister (you should run out and get one right now), lightly toss the sweet potatoes in a bit of olive oil before spreading them on cookie sheet. We lined it with aluminum foil because we want to clean up as little as possible once we’re done noshing on food…
While the sweet potatoes are baking, get your onions, sausage and bacon cooked and prepped.
- Side note: You can also use ground Italian sausage or take the casings off of the links.
After 20 minutes, remove sweet potatoes and give them a good stir. Then add the sausage, bacon, onion goodness.
Now here comes the fun part. Return the hash to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes. About 10 minutes into the baking remove hash and crack the appropriate amount of eggs over the top. We usually have two eggs per person so for us it will be four.
Back into the oven it goes for the remaining 10 minutes or until eggs are cooked to your desire. We usually turn on the broiler for the last minute or so to make sure the yolks are cooked all the way through. We are not running yolks kind of folks.
We had this a couple of times and love it. In fact, we just made another batch just today because it is just that delicious.
~ Now that’s good eatin’ folks!
