This sausage and sweet potato breakfast hash has been our new favorite thing to make for breakfast. It takes a little bit more work than we usually like to do in the morning, but the results are so worth it! This breakfast hash would be a perfect meal for Saturday or Sunday morning, even lunch or dinner. It’s sweet, savory and packed with flavor, so we always end up gobbling it up quickly. Your whole family is sure to love it.

Ingredients for easy, simple and delicious breakfast hash: diced onion, pepper, sweet potato, and sausage

There is a little bit of prep involved but it’s really not too bad. Peel and dice your sweet potatoes, dice an onion and bell pepper and crumble or slice your sausage and you are good to go. Besides the fried egg on top, that’s all there is to it! We’ve been making this dish often here in Costa Rica because the local chorizo and sweet potatoes, called camotes, are fresh and very affordable. The combination ends up being a great balance of sweet, spicy, and savory. The onion and pepper end up sweet and caramelized and add some much needed vegetables.

The Fried Egg

And, of course, there’s the fried egg to finish it off. Some chefs would say that you can’t serve a real hash without a fried egg on top. There’s a good reason for this tradition and insistence.  So we usually add a sunny-side up egg on top of our simple breakfast hash. The gooey-ness of the yoke adds moisture and the flavor of the egg really rounds out the dish.

This is typically a breakfast dish, but you can really serve it at any time of day! We certainly do! It would also be a great candidate for breakfast for dinner. Check out our Prep-Ahead Breakfasts post for other great breakfast ideas.

It’s also great if you are running low on dishes, because all you need is your knife, spatula, cutting board and one pan. One pan meals like this make clean up a breeze! Definitely a plus for us because we don’t have a dishwasher in our new house. It’s nice to whip up this delicious meal and only have a few dishes leftover to clean.



Hopefully you enjoy this Easy Breakfast Hash just as much as we do!
