Those of you who’ve read my other recipes may have noticed that I have a thing for sweet potatoes. I’ve made everything from cookies (sweet potato protein cookies) to tater tots (baked sweet potato tots), and now I’ve found a new favorite: sweet potato hash!

You can also make this hash with regular potatoes, but I almost always have sweet potatoes laying around since they tend to be more versatile in cooking. Sweet potatoes also contain less calories and carbs than regular potatoes, and over 400% of your daily vitamin A requirement!

I love to top the sweet potato hash with an over-easy egg for breakfast, so I encourage you to do so if you’re not on a vegan diet. It’s also great with a few splashes of hot sauce.
