Sweet Potato Hash

Serves 6

Switch things up a little by using sweet potatoes instead of the usual white potatoes. They’ll add color and a slightly sweet layer of flavor to your breakfast or brunch.


  • 2 pounds of sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • Salt to taste


Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into small chunks.

Place half of the olive oil in a large saucepan and heat to medium high. Add the potatoes and sauté for 6-8 minutes, until the potatoes start to brown and soften. Turn the potatoes to brown all sides.

Add the water and cook for 6-8 minutes, until the water steams off, further softening the potatoes. Turn off the heat.

Add the remaining olive oil and salt to the saucepan and stir.

Pour the potato mixture onto 1 or 2 large baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Serve hot.
