15 Sweet Potato Hash Recipes for Breakfast or Dinner
Whether you're introducing veggies into your breakfast routine or searching for an alternative to sometimes-boring baked sweet potatoes, sweet potato hashes will do the trick. With add-ins like bacon (a lot of bacon), zucchini, sausage, apples, and eggs, these well-rounded recipes can take on breakfast or dinner.
Savory Sweet Potato Hash
Diced ham steak and a little salt give this recipe its name. To amplify the savory flavor, replace the sugar with 1/4 tsp. each of onion powder and garlic powder, as reviewer Patty suggests. You can also sprinkle on cayenne for an extra kick.
Sweet Potato and Pastrami Hash
Kids will eat their veggies when pastrami, chorizo, and bratwurst join the mix — though kid-friendly sweet potato and russet potato cubes don't hurt.
Don't confuse paleo-friendly for flavorless. "We love this one at our house," Tonna Jacobson says. "The chorizo is a must if you want a big punch of flavor! The poached egg completes the dish." Whole30 eaters can nosh on this, too.
Sweet Potato and Fennel Hash
Bacon, whiskey, jalapeno, and brown sugar give this hash the savory-spicy-sweet flavor that reviewers rave about. Fennel adds the slightest taste of licorice.
Sweet Potato Turkey Hash
Though made for Thanksgiving leftovers, this hash would work the other 364 days of the year with any chopped, cooked meat you have on hand.
Air Fryer Sweet Potato Hash
Reviewers recommend upping the bacon from two to four (or more) pieces because, well, it's bacon. But they say the amounts of smoked paprika, salt, black pepper, and dried dill weed are just right.
Southwestern Pork Sausage and Sweet Potato Hash
"Great and easy way to use up veggies, and tastes great for breakfast or dinner. I've even added leftover grilled corn," Janet Henderson says. If you have tomatoes on hand, skip the storebought salsa and make it from scratch!
Sweet Potato and Apple Sausage Casserole
Reviewer CoCo's Cookin' recommends reducing the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and roasting the sweet potatoes and sausage first: "I add the apple when the yams yield to a fork and are within approximately 15 minutes of being done. I like my yams to be soft while allowing the apple to retain a little firmness, and since the apple is softer it takes much less time to cook."
Sweet Potato Zucchini Hash
"Just made this for my family, and my kids went crazy for it. Very good and not overly sweet. I only used 1 tbsp. of brown sugar and added a dash off cinnamon." — fingers777
Sweet and Sassy Hash Browns
Find sweet potatoes sweet enough on their own? Several reviewers omitted brown sugar from the recipe. If you opt for a savory version too, take a cue from home cook gapch1026: "Excellent served with a dollop of sour cream and garnish of fresh cilantro!"
Ham Hash With Sweet Potatoes & Thyme
This hash's secret ingredient? Ketchup! Even skeptical home cooks found that the condiment worked well in combination with mustard, dried thyme, and fresh parsley.
Sweet Potatoes with Sausage and Peppers
"One of the most colorful dishes I've ever made and a nice mix of sweet savory and spicy," Jerri L. says. "It's fall in a bowl!"
Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Roasting caramelizes the natural sugars in sweet potatoes and sweet onions. Olive oil and balsamic vinegar (a product of caramelized, aged grapes) enhance these veggies even more.
Greek Cowboy Hash and Eggs
"The tanginess of the feta (the Greek part) is a strange but tasty complement to the smoky, spicy chipotle chili powder (the cowboy part). This meal is great for brunch and simple to scale down for a quick dinner when you're cooking for yourself." — michaelbeezner
Sweet Potato Hash Browns
Recipe creator hannahmaej prefers this pan-fried sweet potato hash to French fries, and we can understand. With diced sweet onion, bacon, thyme, parsley, and chives in the mix, this side can stand up to heavy mains like burgers and steak.
