Sweet Potato Hash with Sunny Side Up Egg


I am the worst person to talk to when it comes to eating breakfast. I find that I am never hungry for breakfast during regular breakfast hours. And you would think I would be since I get up way before dawn (2:30 am.).

Why so early, you ask? I teach English as a second language to adults in Korea. The time difference, (my last class ends at 10:00 ,or 10:30 am. depending on where we are with daylight savings time), I am still not hungry for breakfast. Go figure.

However, I did hear that your first meal of the day, regardless of time, is considered breakfast. This means it is unnecessary to eat breakfast at a set time, and whatever time you have your first meal of the day, you are essentially having breakfast. Nice to know.

I received an email from My Fitness Pal sharing this delicious-looking recipe for Sweet Potato Hash with Sunny Side Up Egg, and I thought, “Hmmm, this would make a great weekend brunch!” Doesn’t it look just yummy? For your convenience, I’ve included the recipe and the URL so you can check out this and other recipes that may interest you. Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Hash with Sunny Side Up Eggs

2 (1-ounce) slices of all-natural turkey bacon, chopped (certified gluten-free if necessary)
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and shredded (about 2 cups shredded)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 large eggs


Mist a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat on medium-high. To skillet, add bacon and onion. Sauté for 4 minutes until onion is translucent. Add sweet potato, salt, pepper, and sauté, for about 7–8 minutes, until the potato is cooked through. Stir in cilantro; divide between two plates.

Reduce heat to medium, and mist the same skillet with cooking spray. Crack eggs onto separate sides of the skillet and cook until set (or flip for over-easy eggs). Place one egg over each serving of hash. Sprinkle with additional pepper to taste.
