Breakfast Hash

Back in my early 20s, I was the type of person who frequently skipped breakfast. I didn't know what I was missing out on ;)

Today, I wouldn't dream of starting my day without a nourishing meal. My go-to is usually oatmeal but sometimes it's fun to prepare something special. 
Although there are a few steps to follow in making this Breakfast Hash, it's worth the effort. Perfect for a weekend brunch or on a day you have extra time in the morning. 

Breakfast Hash
Serves 4

2 medium sweet potatoes, cleaned and diced
12 mini chicken sausage links, sliced (I used AmyLu Apple & Maple Mini Links)
4 eggs
1 cup raw spinach
1/2 small yellow onion, small diced
1 avocado, sliced
3 Tbsp Olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Add diced sweet potato to a sheet pan and drizzle with 1 Tbsp olive oil. Sprinkle with salt & pepper & roast for 25-30 minutes, or until potatoes are browned. Remove from oven and set aside. 

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add diced onion and cook until soft. Add sliced chicken sausage and saute until cooked through. Add roasted potatoes and spinach. Cook until spinach is wilted and the mixture is heated through. 

In a separate skillet, lightly fry the eggs in 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat until cooked through.

Divide the sweet potato & chicken sausage mixture between four plates. Top each with a fried egg and avocado slices. 

Tell me: What's your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?

- ST


  1. Work breakfast = 1 Greek Yogurt & 1 pack instant oatmeal Maple / brown sugar and of course black coffee. Weekend / days off = black coffee and whatever I find to eat.

    1. Ha, yes to the coffee part! A little caffeine is a must :)

  2. That looks good! Breakfast meals are the best and I often eat them at lunch and dinner, too. One of my favorites is to add lots of toppings like avocado, spinach and cheese to scrambled eggs. But, like you, I like oatmeal, too.

    1. I agree, Tina - breakfast foods are good any time of the day. I also love a good egg scramble for dinner. Yum!

  3. Sounds like a great thing to make for the weekend. During the week I usually eat yogurt and granola or a breakfast bar.

    1. Both of those sound great and super quick and easy for a weekday morning. I heart granola :)
