Sweet Potato Hash with Eggs and Bacon

Sweet Potato Hash with Eggs and Bacon is one of my favorite ways to eat eggs for breakfast. It also makes a wonderful and inexpensive lunch or dinner. I love the sweet taste of sweet potatoes in savory dishes. I’ve added red bell pepper, onion, and zucchini to the hash for flavor and tons of good nutrition. Lots of different ingredients would work in this recipe and you can really use it to clear out your refrigerator.

Sweet Potato Hash with Eggs and Bacon

To make Sweet Potato Hash with Eggs and Bacon, first you cook some bacon. I like to use a Cast-Iron Skillet because this dish is finished in the oven, plus if seasoned well, you don’t need to add any grease to keep the bacon from sticking.

Once the bacon crisps up you set it aside and cook the sweet potato cubes in the bacon fat until they start to brown and get soft. Next add the onion, red pepper, zucchini plus the spices. I added cayenne pepper, paprika, and chili powder all of which I really like with sweet potatoes.

Once the veggies start to soften, form two wells in the mixture and crack the eggs into them. Place the pan in a 400 degree oven to cook the eggs.

I like to cook the eggs just until the white part is nice and set. I love when the warm, creamy yolk spreads out over the hash. It’s like the egg yolk coats the hash in a rich and silky sauce.

It is a hearty, delicious, and low-carb way to start your day!

    I am a big fan of sweet potatoes, but honestly I don’t like eggs that are half cooked, but with this dish it turns out to look so yummy and delicious that I nearly drool. It is an ideal breakfast for those who are aiming for a healthy one. I just have one question, can I add some best dimsum hk to make it looks like some Chinese food? (Since I am a Hongkers. lol)
