Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash
I’m a big fan of potatoes. White, yellow, sweet, baked, boiled, roasted or mashed, I’m happy to eat potatoes for any meal of the day. Although I do love white potatoes, sweet potatoes have been my go-to option lately. Not only are they delicious, but they are so quick and easy to prepare, and pack a ton of flavour. From sweet dishes to savoury dishes, sweet potatoes are incredibly versatile and inexpensive, making them a great source of starchy carbohydrates to add to any meal.
For this sweet potato hash, I opted to pair them with some sausages, eggs and green onion to help create a well-balanced meal complete with protein, healthy fats and fibre. Although I used pork sausages in this recipe, you could easily use beef, turkey or chicken sausages if you prefer. Not to mention, you could also use ground meat if you don’t have any sausages on hand.
