sweet potato breakfast hash ingredients

  • sweet potatoes
  • bacon— the quality of your bacon matters. We use Pederson’s which we can find at our local Natural Grocers. Always check your bacon to ensure that it’s allergen friendly as this is an item many brands like to sneak gluten into.
  • apple— you can use whatever apple variety you have on hand, we prefer sweet apples
  • onion— we prefer to use a white/yellow onion
  • garlic cloves
  • shallot
  • bell pepper— use whatever color you have on hand, we like to use a yellow and green peppers, but orange and red work too
  • cooking oil— we use grapeseed oil and enjoy its high heat cooking flexibility, coconut oil works too

kitchen essentials

  • sharp knife— this helps make chopping all the ingredients faster, more efficient and easier on you.
  • cutting board— have one ready to go for all these ingredients that need prepped
  • medium size skillet
  • spatula

frequently asked questions

can you make this dish ahead of time?

This is a great meal to prep ahead of time. If you want to, you can dice the vegetables and keep in an air-tight container in the refrigerator overnight to help make this dish even easier for the morning.

what’s the easiest way to prepare bacon

We have tried every way you can think of to prepare bacon including baking in our oven. Our family enjoys bacon best prepared on the griddle. It’s always crispy and perfect. This is the griddle we use for not only bacon, but also pancakes, French toast, and other recipes.

can you double this recipe?

You sure can. Like we mentioned above, this recipe is great for meal prep and is easy to prep ahead of time. Now, if you want to double this recipe, you can have some for now and some for later, again great for prepping multiple meals to use throughout the week or for serving to a large crowd.

You can easily double or even triple this recipe and it will turn out great each time. Just make sure that you have a pan large enough to cook altogether or batch cook it if needed.

how do you store this?

We recommend storing in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If stored properly, this recipe should be good for about 5-6 days in the refrigerator.

You can reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop to bring back the crispness of all the ingredients.

can you add other things to your breakfast sweet potato hash?

Absolutely! If you have some more favorite breakfast ingredients that you want to toss in that are gluten and dairy free, feel free to do so.

We suggest trying things like other colored bell peppers, sausage, eggs and spinach. Always check the ingredients in your sausage and other meats to ensure no hidden dairy or gluten are to be found.
