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.
