Sweet Potato Hash

7 Dec

This has quickly become a crowd favorite!  I’ve made it multiple times and each time, everyone LOVES it!!  It started out one Sunday morning, I didn’t want to make boring eggs and fruit or bacon, saw a sweet potato in my vegetable basket and the rest is history!  This can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.  I made a big pan of it (minus the eggs and goat cheese) for a pot luck at work this week, everyone loved it!



  • 2 medium size sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 – whole red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 4-6 links spicy turkey sausage (remove casing)
  • goat cheese crumbles
  • eggs (1-2 per person)
  • enough coconut oil (or olive oil) to coat the pan)


  • Heat a large skillet to a medium heat with coconut oil in the pan
  • Dice sweet potatoes and red onion and add to skillet (this is the longest part)
  • In a separate frying pan, get your turkey sausage cooking.  Once it starts to cook, chop up the links so it’s more of a ground sausage consistency
  • Make sure to mix the sweet potato/onion mixture frequently so it doesn’t stick but it will probably need to cook about 30 minutes before the potatoes become fork tender
  • Once the sausage is cooked, add it to the sweet potato/onion mixture and cook until potatoes start to caramelize
  • While everything is cooking, chop up some scallions (amount depending on you, I like a lot)
  • Get another frying pan out (I use the one the sausage was cooked in) and fry your eggs.  I like mine to have a runny yoke, feel free to cook them however you like
  • When the potatoes are nice and lightly browned, put a scoop in a bowl, top with a little scallion, goat cheese then your egg on top.  I then put a little more scallion and goat cheese on top of the egg
  • ENJOY!
