Chef’s Tips

  • Instead of popping your skillet in the oven to cook the eggs, you can also cover the skillet and cook on the stove for about 5-10 minutes.
  • This sweet potato hash is delicious on its own, but you can also top it with sliced avocado, pickled jalapeño slices, spicy mayo, or just a dash of hot sauce.
  • To make this recipe vegetarian, you can use veggie sausage crumbles instead of regular breakfast sausage.

    1. Do you cook the sweet potato 🍠 prior to adding it? It seems like you would need to or else it would be too hard.

      1. Nope! They cook for roughly 20 minutes as you make the hash. If you cut them into large cubes, they’ll take longer to cook.
