As much as we love a bowl of Greek yogurt or a quick green smoothie for breakfast, sometimes something more substantial is calling our names. Instead of omelets or oatmeal, dive in headfirst to these colorful (and flavor-packed) sweet potato hashes. Essentially a one-pot jumble of veggies, protein, and sometimes a baked egg or two, these seven sweet potato-studded skillets are bound to become your newest favorite option for morning fuel. And let’s be honest, this is the ideal breakfast-for-dinner meal too. We see a brinner party in your future.
1. Sweet Potato Chorizo Hash
Chorizo and sweet potato are basically just potatoes and sausage, but with a massive flavor increase. Break up the ground sausage over green chilies and diced sweet potato, then toss in fiery spices. We love the accompanying recipe for avocado crema, but if you don’t have time to make it, sliced avocado tastes just as good.
2. Roasted Sweet Potato, Kale, and Tofu Hash
This scrambled “egg” and kale hash is completely vegan and bursting with flavor. Simply mix crumbled tofu, sweet potatoes, and onions with tandoori masala, an Indian spice mix you can make yourself if you can’t find it in the store. Serve over wilted kale with hot sauce and a smear of hummus. Your meat-eating friends will be huge fans too.
3. Sweet Potato Hash With Black Beans and Spinach
A brunch option packed with protein as well as flavor, this Mexican-inspired dish will keep you full long past noon. Sauté mild baby spinach and cubed sweet potatoes with shallots and black beans in a lime-kissed spice mixture and serve with over-easy eggs and a spoonful of Greek yogurt.
4. Bacon and Kale Sweet Potato Hash
The first word in this recipe is bacon, yet this dish is Whole30 and Low FODMAP approved (cue the applause!). A one-pan meal stuffed with protein and vegetables, this is a breakfast (or dinner) you’ll want to make on a weekly basis. Our favorite element of this dish? The eggs are baked right in the pan. Simply make wells in the potato and veg mixture, then throw the whole (oven-safe) skillet in the oven until the egg whites are firm, but yolks still runny.
5. Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Hash
We’re all about breakfast meat, but with so many salty and fatty options (fine, we might enjoy those once in a while too), we turn to turkey for a regular morning protein. In an oven-safe pan, sauté the turkey and sweet potatoes with bell peppers and onion, then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Melt the motz quickly in the oven or simply place a lid (or large baking sheet) over the pan.
6. Zucchini Sweet Potato Hash
Though mild in flavor, chopped zucchini adds a satisfying crunch to this sweet potato hash. Throw in a few more veggies if you’re feeling adventurous (you wild one, you), serve with scrambled eggs on the side or wrap everything up in a whole-wheat tortilla.
7. Brussels Sprout Sweet Potato Hash
Maybe you turned up your nose at Brussels sprouts back in the day, but you’ve got to embrace these tender little veggies. Slowly pan-fry the sprouts with cubed sweet potato, onions, and garlic. Mix in a bit of Italian-flavored breadcrumbs (or give that stale bread on your counter a quick blitz in the food processor for DIY crumbs!), and serve with crumbled bacon and a drizzle of soy sauce.
