Sweet Potato Hash

30 Minutes

4 Servings


Sweet Potato Hash makes a balanced 30-minute snack, lunch or dinner—hearty and straightforward skillet with chopped sweet potatoes, zucchini, turkey bacon, and eggs. It's perfect for dinner at every time of the day, whether morning, lunch or dinner. Sweet potatoes are an ideal source of fibre, vitamins and minerals. Proteins are building blocks of life, and a single egg contains roughly 6.3 grams of high-quality protein that includes all nine essential amino acids in the body's right quantities for optimal growth and maintenance.  The critical role of proteins in the body is to create, improve and fix or substitute things, such as tissues.


  1. Preheat a large non-stick ceramic deep skillet over high heat and brush oil.

  2. Cook the bacon until crispy. Then add onion and bell pepper; stir for 3 minutes, stirring regularly.

  3. Add the sweet potatoes, the garlic powder, the cumin, the cinnamon, the chilli flakes and the black pepper.

  4. Stir, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring a couple of times. Potatoes are to be fried but solid.

  5. Add Zucchini and stir.

  6. Create 4 wells and crack each one of the eggs. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, cover and simmer for five minutes. Test for the ideal crispiness a few times. Serve it with cilantro.


Store: Refrigerate the leftovers for up to 3 days. This hash is not crisp, as I find it hard to crisp up potatoes without a lot of oil or a lot of effort. So refrigeration is not going to "ruin" the hash.

Add Variations: Clean out the refrigerator and add more flavour.

Ground lean turkey or grass-fed beef: cook ground meat in small bits. Add the onion and spices before adding the vegetables. ( draining excess fat from beef)  You may want to use a tad of oil for lean poultry.

Veggies: Add chopped brussels sprouts, kale, spinach, eggplant, mushrooms, apple or cabbage. Black beans and corn are going to make this recipe more Mexican


Spices: Make it meatless by adding more spices. Add more chilli flakes or cayenne pepper to make a hot hash.
