Sweet potato hash makes a healthy and flavorful breakfast recipe!  Loaded with sweet potatoes, veggies, bacon and eggs.

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 5


  • 1/2 pound bacon or sausage
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2” cubes
  • 46 eggs
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme


  1. Cook the bacon or sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until it begins to brown and crisp. Remove the meat to a paper towel and drain off some of the grease, leaving enough to cook the veggies.
  2. Add the onions, green pepper, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper and cook until the veggies are softened about 6 minutes. Stir in the potatoes and another 1/2 tsp salt. If needed, add a bit more bacon grease.
  3. Cover the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and starting to brown, about 10-14 minutes. Stir in thyme, cooked bacon or sausage, and any additional salt and pepper needed.
  4. Create indentations for the eggs and crack them into the holes. Season eggs and cover the pan. Lower the heat to medium-low and cook without removing the lid for about 7 minutes. Serve immediately.
