remember how i told you about those sweet potatoes that we grew this past Summer? want to guess how many are left from that harvest? yep. you guessed it. more than we know what to do with. so in an effort to use them up before they spoil, we’ve been throwing them in all kinds of dishes. like most of the dishes i cook, this recipe is just a really easy, and comforting meal.
one-dish wonders might be my love language. i’m betting most moms love one-dish wonders. you know, the kind of meal where you throw a bunch of ingredients that compliment each other beautifully in one pan, and then it’s all served in one pile of goodness on a plate. nothing complicated. just simple, flavorful, food that nourishes you well and brings peace to an evening of cooking for a crowd.
plus, the smell from this dish is just incredible. to start, you’ll need a few basic ingredients.
one thing to note is that you’ll need some cinnamon once the meal gets underway. it’s the secret ingredient that brings it all together like a nice warm hug.
before you begin browning your cubed (skin on) sweet potatoes, go ahead and cook your bacon. drain the majority of your bacon grease, leaving behind enough to coat the pan to use as the oil for cooking everything else. just try not to snack on the bacon as it rests while you’re cooking the rest of your veggies and apples.
cube your sweet potatoes and begin browning. once they’re nearly half-way cooked, add in your coarsely chopped onion and apple. season with sea-salt and generously coat potatoes, onions and apples with ground cinnamon.
when your veggies are nearly cooked through, crumble your bacon and place on top of the hash. also, go ahead and heat up your additional skillet to fry your egg(s).
my preference, for this dish, is to cook your egg(s) so that the yolk is runny once placed on top the hash.
there’s no wrong way to enjoy this dish. add whatever protein you prefer – i would recommend egg. but you could also easily pair pork or chicken sausage. remember that if you like this recipe, Pin it and print it!
