For Hash:

  • 3 large sweet potatoes cut in 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 medium jalapenos diced
  • 1 large green bell pepper diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 pound ground breakfast sausage
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


For Hash:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees (F). On a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat spread cubed sweet potatoes in a single layer and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake for about 20 minutes or until soft.
  • Heat a large cast-iron pan (you can use a regular pan) over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  • When the oil is very hot add the diced onion, jalapenos, and bell pepper. Season with paprika, salt, and pepper. Saute for about 8 minutes or until the onion and peppers are soft. Add more olive oil if the pan gets too dry.
  • While the onions and peppers are cooking cook the breakfast sausage in a separate pan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and drain grease.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the drained sausage and sweet potatoes to the pan. Allow the hash to cook for about 15 minutes, stirring only a couple of times. The bottom will get crispy.
  • If you want to serve with eggs, cook them now. Remove hash from heat and serve
