Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash with Sausage Bacon and Eggs

This sweet potato breakfast hash is delicious and filling. And with all the best things about breakfast – potatoes, sausages, bacon and eggs – in one pan, it’s a great way to start your day!

(Prefer a savoury breakfast to a sweet one? You’ll enjoy these cheddar waffles packed with jalapeno. Perfect with fried egg!)

Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

Let me start with this disclosure: I did not make this sweet potato breakfast hash. Red did.

Those of you who know me and who’ve followed my blog know that I cannot cook (our stove hates me and hot oil scares me) so Red does all the cooking at home.

I will still take credit for the recipe though. I mean, I deserve it!

Have you ever followed around a grumpy cook, constantly asking “what are you doing now?” in the hopes of documenting a recipe?

And then proceeding to take pictures of the food while said cook who you’ve annoyed all morning sits there giving you the evil eye, waiting, hungry and grumpier than ever?

I think not. So say no more. I do what I must to bring you the best, the most delicious recipes. And delicious, this sweet potato breakfast hash is!

Great way to clean out your fridge

It’s also a great way to clean out your fridge. If you’ve ever looked in there and thought what the heck are you going to do with that lone sausage, few strips of bacon, half a bell pepper and other things leftover from your other recipes – make a hash!

You just need to have a piece of sweet potato as base, some eggs, and you have yourself a dish that the whole family will enjoy.

You can use a normal potato; we personally just prefer a sweet potato – we find it so much more flavourful and it brings a delightful sweetness to this savoury dish.

You can experiment with the toppings too. No bacon? Add ham. No sausage? Add hotdog (why not? It’s your hash).

Then all you need to do is start cooking your ingredients in the stove and finish it in the oven. For how long depends on how you want your eggs.

Great start to the day

Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

This sweet potato breakfast hash is so filling and delicious and takes no time at all (that is, if you don’t have a food blogger hovering over you lol).

It’s also a great alternative to pancakes and other sweet breakfast options…though it goes great with pancakes too if you’re thinking of doing an epic breakfast spread.

So tonight, have a look in your fridge. You may just have a delicious breakfast hash in your future tomorrow!

Hi Coral, this can feed 2-4 adults. It really depends how hungry everyone is that morning :)

Could this be (before putting the egg in) put into little containers and stored in the freezer/fridge? I think I would be the only one eating this if I made it, and so I'd like to be able to just make some, put most of it away until I'm going to eat more, and then I can take it out, throw in the egg, and bake it. Looks delicious.

Hi Paige. We haven't actually done that so I can't say for sure. What we usually do is cook it, bake then store the leftovers (with egg and everything) in the fridge. We reheat in the microwave and apart from the egg being more well done, it tastes just as good! Lasts 3 days or so. I think your plan would work too (my only concern is the sweet potato getting too soggy but baking might solve that). Good luck and enjoy!

This looks so tasty. I made something similar to this. It had sweet potatoes, kale and topped with an egg. So good!

Kale sounds like a tasty addition!

I feel like you and I are on the same page. It is always my mission to finish off all the fresh food in my fridge before my next sojourn to the market. I make similar breakfasts to yours - lovely by the way - as a good method to get good value for money.

Absolutely! We try to minimize food wastage at home, a little challenging with a food blog but we make it work :)
