sweet potato breakfast hash.
Since starting on our new food adventure, we have noticed that we have an abundance of sweet potato, and various vegetables and meat left over from dinners at the end of each week. J decided to make a hash from scratch to get rid of some of the odds and ends and Oh. My. Gosh. It was so, so good. He took the remaining mushrooms, asparagus, onions and sweet potatoes, and cooked them with some bacon and pulled pork. The mixture, which he says is 'everything but the kitchen sink,' was perfectly complimented with a runny egg on top. A simple, delicious and nutritious start to the weekend.
4 or 5 medium sweet potatoes, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 red onion, diced
6-8 sprigs of asparagus, chopped
5-6 whole mushrooms, diced
4 strips of bacon, chopped (optional)
2 cups pork/steak/chicken, chopped (optional)
1 avocado, diced
Salt & Pepper
- PREP IT. On medium heat, place a teaspoon of butter in a non-stick. Dice the sweet potato to be 1-2 cm squares and place in the pan for 2-3 mins. Meanwhile, dice the onion, avocado and mushrooms, chop the asparagus, bacon (optional) and meat (optional), and mince the garlic.
- ADD THE VEGGIES (AND MEAT). As the sweet potatoes soften, add the garlic and onion. Add a pinch of salt and pepper for flavor as well. Stir the mixture frequently to ensure it does not burn. If desired, add the bacon pieces and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant and almost completely cooked through. Then add the mushrooms and asparagus, as well as more salt and pepper.
- FRY THE EGGS. While the hash finishes cooking, heat a separate pan on medium heat and add a teaspoon of butter. Crack the eggs, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the whites are cooked and the yolk is soft. As the eggs fry, chop enough fresh parsley to garnish the top.
- SERVE & ENJOY. Once the eggs are done, scoop a serving of the finished hash into a bowl. Gently add an egg on top, as well as the diced avocado pieces. Garnish with fresh parsley and top with your favourite hot sauce for an extra little kick. Enjoy!
