Being the huge brunch fan that I am, I tend to eat out for this morning meal and indulge myself as often as possible. I find new restaurants, get recommendations from friends, and I can't help but hit up my favorite local spots a bit more often than I'd like to admit. After a long week at work, sometimes the last thing I want to do is wake up Saturday morning and worry about cooking a big breakfast...so I treat myself and eat out. One of my goals this year is to cook more breakfast at home. Instead of enjoying my favorite meals out at a restaurant, I've been making them at home and guess what, they have been turning out pretty darn good! On my list of favorites - breakfast hash. This warm dish hits the spot on a chilly winter morning and is full of flavor and healthy ingredients. Below I'm sharing with you one of my favorite hash recipes. Dig in!
Breakfast Hash //
4 cups (cubed) sweet potatoes
1/2 chopped onion
baby bella mushrooms
salt and peper
Preheat oven to 400. In a medium bowl, season cubed potatoes with rosemary, salt, and pepper (to your liking), and mix together. Using a cast iron skillet, heat oil on the stove over medium-high (cover a thin bottom layer of the pan). Place in diced potatoes and cook without turning until the bottoms become golden brown (several minutes). Once the bottoms are browned, stir and cook until the cubes start to soften just a bit. Next increase heat to high, add in all vegetables - zucchini, onion, pepper, and mushrooms - and cook until the veggies start to soften. Make four wells in your hash and break one egg into each. Place skillet into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until the eggs are set. Garnish with avocado and goat cheese.
My favorite thing about making a breakfast hash is that you can mix pretty much any veggie or green with the potatoes and eggs and it will turn out tasting heavenly. Spinach, mushrooms, any type of peppers - whatever you have in your refrigerator that day - throw it in! You'll never get bored with this delicious meal.
