sweet potato hash

sweet potato hash

after our weekend of indulgence at the lake, a bit of cleansing was called for last week. typically, our saturday breakfasts include all sorts of decadent, not-so-good-for-you things. this weekend, i wanted to keep it simple and nourishing.

enter, sweet potato hash.

i roasted a couple of extra sweet potatoes on friday evening (400 degrees for 35-45 minutes). saturday morning, i diced them up along with a red pepper and half an onion. i sauteed the mixture in olive oil over medium-low heat until the onion and pepper began to soften, added a bit of sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and rubbed sage. (mine was perfectly moist at this point, but if you find yours to be too dry, add a bit of water or vegetable broth and continue to heat until most of the liquid has been absorbed.)

voila! a perfect bed on which to serve your poached eggs. (or scrambled for your husband who does not prefer the "runny yolks").

to each their own. happy breakfasting.
