What protein goes with sweet potato hash?
For this recipe we're using al fresco breakfast sausage! I love the Country Style Sausage because of the thyme and sage in it, but the Apple Maple is amazing too. Both go so well with this recipe! It's pre-cooked so it's an on-hand item I love to keep in my fridge every week.
Love a savory sheet pan breakfast? You'll drool over these breakfast nachos with turkey sausage, scrambled eggs, black beans and tons of toppings.
Which color sweet potatoes should I use?
For this sweet potato breakfast hash you'll be using about 1 lb of sweet potatoes. I used a mixture of sweet potatoes with orange and white/cream flesh because that's what we had on hand. You can't go wrong with the type you use because they'll cook the same. My best recommendations are orange, purple or white!
Are sweet potatoes good for breakfast?
Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite ingredients to eat for breakfast! They're healthy, full of nutrients and good carbs to keep you full all day. Pair sweet potatoes with healthy fat and protein, like this recipe, and you're set for the day.
How to make sweet potato breakfast hash:
Start by chopping your sweet potatoes, onion and veggies into small hash-sized pieces. Next, chop the al fresco Breakfast Sausage and mix it all in a bowl with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika.
Dump the mixture on a large sheet pan and bake at 425°F for 20 minutes. Remove it from the oven and create 6 small wells to crack the eggs. Crack an egg in each well then place back in the oven for 7-11 minutes. Bake for 7 minutes if you want runny eggs and 11 minutes if you want yolks that are set.
Serve with fresh chopped parsley or hot sauce!
