Breakfast for dinner….Sweet Potato Hash

Every time I tell the fam we are having breakfast for dinner I always get a unanimous “yaaaaaay”. Seems to be popular in other households too. My favorite thing to eat when it comes to breakfast for dinner is usually an egg dish of some sort. Kids prefer pancakes or waffles. Husband will eat pretty much anything.

Sweet Potato Hash

I was feeling lazy Saturday night so I decided it was going to be a BFD night. I wanted simple over medium eggs and a bagel, but was craving something more than just fruit on the side. I found a lonely little (well medium) sweet potato in the pantry along with some red onions. I chopped them into a small dice (skin still on the potatoes) and threw them into a hot skillet with a little bit of oil. I spiced them up with a pinch of Aleppo pepper, another pinch of smoked paprika, and of course salt & pepper. It took them no time to cook up and they turned out to be a perfect company to my fried eggs.

Of course a little green Tabasco made them that much better.

Do you like breakfast for dinner?

    That looks awesome! I had something similar last night. My first fried egg, if you can believe it. Now I must try it with some sweet potatos, which I do have.

    I love sweet potatoes!!! And BFD…my husband is not a fan of BFD so we usually only do it when he isn’t home. This is definitely a plate that I would happily eat 😉

    Love breakfast for dinner. I will have to make some sweet potato hash soon.

    After a very large lunch at a local event I didn’t feel hungry until I visited here.

    LOVE breakfast for dinner. So many options and everything is pretty simple. This looks tasty!!

    HUGE fan! We actually had it tonight! I made vegan style french toast. The hash looks yummy. I actually have a random sweet potato hanging out in the cabinet- I should make a hash out of it. Hope you had a nice weekend.

    This looks wonderful! I love brinner – although I DON’T do it enough – sad. I like the idea of this recipe though!! I don’t have nearly enough sweet potatoes in my life. 🙂

    I love doing breakfast for dinner. What a great way to use up that lonely sweet potato.

  10. Fallon posted March 27, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    I like BFD but it is something my boyfriend doesn’t believe in. Growing up they had their 3 square meals and breakfast for dinner just isn’t appropriate… I’ll have to show him how yummy it can be sometimes. 😉

    The hash looks great and I love the green sauce! So good!!

    You inspired me to make breakfast for dinner tomorrow night!!

    Every so often we like to change things up and have breakfast for dinner – or even turn leftover dinner into breakfast. Who made these rules, anyway? 😀 Love the idea of this hash and the pepper perk-up!

    LOVE Breakfast for dinner! I usually find myself having egg white omelets with some fresh fruit. I love the idea of the sweet potato hash, its my wife’s favorite veg and I always have some on hand. Will defiantly try this out.

    I have been on a HUGE sweet potato kick lately, muffins, biscuits, casserole… the list goes on and on. I have always enjoyed sweet potato hash though especially with a runny egg!

    Thanks for including my breakfast hash link. It’s one of my favorite breakfasts. And yes, I eat it for dinner too!

    I love breakfast for dinner – or pretty much any pile of veggies topped with an egg! Sweet potatoes are right up my alley too. Looks great!

  29. JulieD posted March 31, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    I love BFD and your sweet potatoes look awesome!

  30. Shelby posted April 1, 2011 at 6:01 am

    Everytime I see a dish with eggs cooked this way I wish I could eat them! I have such a hard time getting past the yolk….This looks great though and maybe I will just give it a try again. I’ve been able to make an omlette the last few weeks and eat it without recourse! lol. Great dish Aggie!

  31. Barbara @ Modern Comfort Food posted April 6, 2011 at 7:59 am

    We eat breakfast-for-dinner at my house at least once a week and it always elicits “yaaah”s with my family too. And what a great idea to cook sweet potatoes, one of our favorite vegetables, as hash browns. With the seasoning you’ve used, they would also be excellent as a dinner-for-dinner side dish too!
