Sweet Potato Hash

This edition of ‘Weekend Breakfast Blogging’ is brought to you with lots of coffee, and a two year old that refuses to sleep in. He wakes me with a simple phrase command: EAT!

After I got him squared away with a whole wheat waffle and chocolate milk (hey, its Saturday) I began my own breakfast feast:

Sweet Potato Hash with a fried egg and BACON! Lets begin.

Start by getting out a cast iron skillet. I think there is just something special about potatoes in cast iron. Comfort food at its finest!

If you have other things to cook, its best to get this started first. It can take a little while, but doesn’t require much fuss.

Dice a small onion and throw it into the skillet with a little butter/oil on medium heat.

Next dice a couple sweet potatoes, and add them to the skillet.

Add some salt, but mostly leave them alone. Stir every 5 minutes or so, until the sweet potatoes are soft and begin to mash together. At this point you can either leave them like this or really mash them with the back of a spatula. They crisp up on the bottom and become a delicious little sweet potato patty.

I was impatient, so I left them loose. Plop them on a plate, and whalla, you have sweet potato hash!

But ladies and gentlemen, I can’t have naked sweet potato hash. I need an egg on top.

And I need to do this

Oh yeah! Now we’re talkin! Have a great breakfast :)
