Eggs and Sweet Potato Hash

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I don’t love to eat breakfast. But you also know, that I am eating breakfast these days, for the health of it. And this, THIS, has become a weekly favorite.

Grated sweet potatoes, a couple of spices, and eggs is all you need for this super easy, delicious and healthy breakfast.  It’s so good!

Eggs and Sweet Potato Hash

  • 2 tablespoon avocado oilIMG_20180223_082207
  • 2 large or 3 small sweet potatoes, peeled and julienned/shredded
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 or 4 eggs
  • green onions (optional)

In a cast iron (or not, I just love cast iron) skillet, heat on medium and add the avocado oil. In a food processor or with a cheese grater, turn the sweet potatoes into hash browns. Add the potatoes to the hot oil in one layer. Next, add the spices. Do NOT stir! Let heat about 5 minutes, without touching the potatoes (except to lift slightly with a spatula to test for doneness.)

Flip the potatoes and brown the other side, about 5 minutes. Then stir them and finally, create circular spaces for your eggs. Crack the eggs into the “holes” and let cook. I like runny eggs with this recipe, but you could do scrambled if you prefer. Cook until the eggs are done and serve.

This meal takes a little prep work but it is so delicious and it warms up well, too. Yum!

Sweet Purple Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet potatoes and I like that there are so many things you can do with them. Roasted sweet potato fries are a staple in my weekly kitchen. Also, have you ever tried a sweet potato chunk raw? Because you should. They’re delicious.

Purple sweet potatoes are gorg! Have you had them? I made these “sweet,” with cinnamon and a sprinkle of coconut sugar, and they turned out so yummy! Plus, they’re super easy.

Sweet Potato Coconut Pancakes with Roasted Walnut Maple Syrup

Let’s have sweet potato casserole for breakfast, but healthy and more tasty! Not only are these pancakes gluten free and paleo, they are warm, sweet and delicious too. For breakfast or brunch, they will fill you up for a taste of  Thanksgiving goodness without the “too full” feel.

Sweet Potato Coconut Pancakes

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, roasted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup shaved coconut
  • a pinch of allspice
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil for each pan on pancakes

Roast the sweet potatoes in a 425 degree oven for 45 minutes and let cool at room temperature for 30 minutes or more. (Make sure to poke the potatoes with a fork before roasting to prevent steam burn!)

Peel potatoes and place them in a bowl. Mash the potatoes and add the remaining ingredients, stir until incorporated.

In a skillet pan, add the coconut oil and heat on low medium. Spoon mixture into the pan in pancake form and cook on each side about 5 minutes or until easily flipped.

Roasted Walnut Maple Syrup

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • pinch of salt

In a small skillet pan, add crushed walnuts to a heated pan on high heat. Roast the nuts for about 3 minutes, shaking constantly. Turn the pan down to low and add the additional ingredients. Stir and cook one minute.

Drizzle this syrup and coconut flakes over the sweet potato pancakes and enjoy.
