Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

It’s been a while since I’ve done a full ‘what I ate Wednesday’ post and linked up with Jenn because I’m usually too rushed to shove food in my mouth to set it up and take a picture. However, the breakfast I’ve been enjoying this week is definitely share worthy, so I decided to share it, along with the rest of what I’m eating at 9 months pregnant.

pre breakfast

You probably guessed it; this isn’t the share-worthy breakfast. However, since I don’t eat until Hailey gets up at 8, I always snag a little something on my way to the computer at 6:30. Typically it’s half a banana, a scoop of peanut butter and decaf tea or coffee.

By the time Hailey is up, I am more than ready for something a little heartier.

This sweet potato breakfast hash is a delicious switch up to my routine and comes together in about 5 minutes, after the initial prep work, which can be done up to 4 days in advance. Recipe below! I’ve been adding a drizzle of sriracha because, as Hailey says, Mommy like spicy.

shaklee matcha smoothie

By late morning, I’m usually ready for my net mini meal. I was recently sent a pouch of matcha green tea (green tea powder) from Kiss Me Organics.  It includes 137x the antioxidants of brewed green tea and can easily be added to baked goods, smoothies, lattes, sauces, etc. I went wild and tried it in my mango smoothie. Though it messed with the color, the flavor was still delicious! Now I’m thinking of what else I could sprinkle it into for a little nutrient boost.

lemon pesto pasta

For lunch I downed two bowls of this leftover lemon pesto pasta with broccoli and sundried tomatoes. Hailey helped with the second bowl. I’ve found it’s impossible to eat in front of her without sharing.

Mid afternoons lately have left me hungry without anything sounding all the great. I usually reach for carrots and hummus or apples and peanut butter. Nothing fancy, but it gets me through to dinner.


I’m on a chicken enchilada kick. I made a batch for the freezer (baby prep post coming soon!) and one for dinner. The green mess on the side is actually quite delicious- avocado, tomato, cilantro, red onion, lime juice and s&p. The perfect side dish if you aren’t trying to snap pretty pictures of your dinner. Oh well!

Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash
Serves: 5
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
This savory and filling breakfast can be prepped up to four days in advance so it comes together in 5 minutes on a busy weekday morning.
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 4 large green onions
  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 5 eggs (or as many as desired)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Peel and dice sweet potatoes into small cubes. Wash and cut kale into bite sized pieces. Wash and chop green onions
  2. Coat a large skillet with olive oil and saute sweet potatoes over medium heat until softened. Add salt and pepper to taste. At this point you can store all the ingredients in the fridge in an airtight container for up to four days.
  3. When ready to make the hash, add desired amount of sweet potatoes to an oiled pan with a handful of green onions.
  4. Saute over medium heat until the onions are soft and the potatoes are reheated.
  5. In a separate pan, fry the number of eggs you desire. (Alternative: you may also add the egg directly into the sweet potato mixture with the kale if you prefer a scramble).
  6. Add a handful of kale to the sweet potato mixture and saute until wilted, adding more salt and pepper if needed.
  7. Serve the fried egg over the sweet potato hash.


Breakfasts: do you prefer sweet or savory?

    I’ve been loving to make sweet potato hash browns for Aiden by julienne peeling the sweet potato, coating it in olive oil and cooking it in a pan on the stove. He loves them!

    I want those enchiladas! They look delicious. I don’t make them nearly enough.

    I’m on a savory breakfast kick, and I’m trying to eat more whole eggs (omega-3s). I bought sweet potatoes this week, and I keep thinking about hash. Maybe I’ll roast them tonight so I can have them in the morning.

    I’ve been trying to shake up my breakfasts lately – and the sweet potato hash is a great idea! I don’t tend to think of eating them for breakfast – but there’s no real reason not to.

    And I definitely go for savory breakfasts, though I do sometimes add a little fruit.

    I usually do the same most mornings with a light snack then breakfast when my son wakes up. Usually a few raw macadamia nuts. I’m obsessed with those lately! Sweet potato hashes are my favorite! I’m missing my oven to roast my potatoes in as the stove top just aren’t the same… Hopefully we’ll be back home soon! Oh and my son ALWAYS steals my food. Unless it’s tomatoes. He HATES tomatoes so when I don’t want to share I just tell him it’s tomatoes. Such a mean mom right 😉 He’s figuring it out though as the other day I was eating a granola bar and told him it was tomatoes. “No it’s not mamma it’s a nola bar and sharing is nice.” Gotta love three year olds!

      Every single stage is so cool, isn’t it? I loved when H started saying little words and now that we are on to expressing her own thoughts and sentences, it’s flat out mind blowing. Kids are so cool!

    I’m totally the same way–I need something to eat asap when I wake up. It was especially true when I was pregnant!

    Your meals are so colorful! That breakfast looks so good! I don’t make sweet potato hash very often, but I definitely enjoy it when I do.

    I like both sweet and savory breakfasts. Sometimes I’m in an oatmeal mood, other times an egg mood, it just depends.

    Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m
    starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone
    with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  1. […] subbed out sourdough and replaced it with this sweet potato breakfast hash. It’s so dang good that I’m committing to roasting extra sweet potatoes for the next morning […]
