sweet potato hash

sweet potato hash

I truly don't have anything to write as I just made this literally a mere few hours ago and wanted to get it posted ASAP. You must make this. If you are a fan of the 'hash family' not hashish, although that might be kinda good..no don't go there! Let's stick with the fact that this is one very tasty hash. It truly melds perfectly with fresh hollandaise sauce; wow do they go together! So many flavors in this hash all melding together nice and cozy. Have you ever seen sweet potato hash? I've never seen this before, but had it in the back of my mind for a while and finally put it to the hot, greasy skillet this morning.

print recipe

2-3 sweet potatoes, chopped into 1-inch cubes
extra virgin olive oil
a few TB of butter
salt & pepper
caramelized onions
few dashes of worcestershire sauce
couple dashes of Tabasco sauce, optional but wonderful

Caramelize some onions (about 1 giant sweet yellow onion) after it's done caramelizing add a few drops of the Worcestershire sauce, set aside. Heat up skillet with some EVOO and fry up the sweet potatoes until nice & crispy, season with salt and pepper. Towards the end of cooking add a few tablespoons of butter to the skillet to melt into the hash. Then add in a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce, mix until combined.

I served the hash with a fried egg and a touch of fresh hollandaise sauce (as seen in the background of the pic). Love my sauces; sauces are my friend. I'm a true sauce-junkie. Raise your hand if you are a sauce-junkie!

  17. You are making me regret my breakfast yogurt. Why didn't I wake up earlier and check my blog reader BEFORE I had breakfast? Actually, it wouldn't have done any good b/c I don't have any sweet potatoes on hand but you can believe that I'm picking some up right away. I love SP, especially when they're made into fries so I know I would love this before even tasting it (the egg is the cherry on top, so to speak!)

    Thank you for not waiting to post this! 8-D

  20. Let's see-- I'm hungry. It's breakfast time. I have two sweet potatoes waiting to become something. Looks like pancakes are out of the scene, and it's this!
    Great recipe. Yes, I adore sauces. I'm all about pan sauces. I go easy on the hollandaise, though, so it goes easy on the waist line.

  21. Dawn... seriously, I made this for breakfast. I made just a few minor adaptions, but pretty much stuck to your recipe. My husband is a very happy man! Dee-lish! I will post my version in the next day or two.
    Thanks for making breakfast anything but boring!

I desparately need to lose weight and stick to my eating plan, but how am I ever gonna with all the your delectable dishes to try? I'm a sweet potato fiend as well and just picked some up at the market so now I'm really hankering to get in the kitchen and make this!

  29. hash is a short and sweet way to say "delicious, filling, hearty, and flavorful breakfast delight" and this one's no exception. i'm convinced that sweet potatoes would be a preferred hash base--bravo!
