Mexican Hash
with leftover sweet potatoes / bacon / avocados / eggs

Active: 25 min Total: 25 min

Potato hash topped with fried eggs is a classic diner dish. This one made with sweet potatoes is hearty enough for dinner with the addition of Mexican-inspired spices, bacon and extra vegetables. This version is even faster to prepare than when it was first introduced to our meal plan service in June 2016, thanks to the use of leftover roasted sweet potatoes from Monday.

Make

  1. Heat a large skillet with the first part of oil over medium-high heat. Add bacon, bell peppers, onions and white parts of green onions. Saute until bacon is cooked through and vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add paprika and coriander and saute until fragrant, ~1 minute more. Add leftover roasted sweet potatoes and saute until potatoes are heated through. Squeeze lime juice over the top and season with some salt and pepper. Transfer hash to a serving plate and wipe out skillet.
  2. Return skillet to heat and add second part of oil. Crack eggs into oil and fry to desired done-ness (cook on one side for sunny-side up or flip and cook on both sides).
  3. Top hash with avocado slices, fried eggs and green parts of green onions. Add hot sauce if you’d like and enjoy!

Probably won't make this one without seriously tweaking it first again. It is too sweet and desperately needs some texture.

Added serrano peppers to liven things up. Great, simple, delicious meal.

Getting the bacon to cook through took longer than 5 min (maybe more like 11?) but it was SO good.

Delicious and oh so easy. My first "breakfast for dinner" Cooksmarts meal, loved the leftovers for brunch. The pre-cut sweet potatoes made this so easy, love the combo with the Kale Salad which made for an easy week.

Two of the kids were not at all interested in evening trying this meal. One slowly picked through and ate. One ate heartily. One wasn't home so who knows. :)
