We have had a beautiful summer! So beautiful, in fact, that I went tent camping a few weeks ago and was actually chilly at night (aka fire and sweatshirt needed!). It was on that camping trip that I was reminded of a very easy, very delicious dish.

Our friends brought the ingredients to make a hash for breakfast one morning. Merriam webster defines “hash” as “chopped meat cooked and cooked again typically with potatoes”. Basically, the dish consists of whatever leftover meat and vegetables you have along with some eggs!

I have made my own version of this dish made with sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and sausage. I hope you enjoy!

 Sweet Potato Hash
Serves 4-6

1lb hot/spicy sausage
1 large sweet potato, cleaned, peeled, diced
 1/2 red onion, diced
 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
8 button mushrooms, washed and sliced
 5 large eggs

 All You Do:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. In a medium oven proof skillet, brown sausage. Remove sausage to paper towels.
3. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add sweet potatoes. Cook for about 4 minutes (you do not want them mushy). Drain.
4. In sausage pan, add a teaspoon of oil. Cook onion, pepper, and mushrooms for 5-6 minutes.
5. Add drained sweet potatoes and sausage to the vegetables. Heat through.
6. Crack the eggs over the meat mixture (in a circle… do not stir them in).
7. Bake the hash for 10 minutes or until the eggs are over easy.
