Sweet potatoes are healthy and full of flavor. Pair them with ham, garlic and fried eggs to create a nutritious and filling hash. Have leftover Easter ham? This is the perfect recipe to use it up.
Sweet potatoes aren’t just a supper side dish. I love them at breakfast because I feel like they’re a nice burst of nutrition to my morning routine. Typically hash is made with white potatoes and corned beef, but I switched it up a bit and used sweet potatoes, smoked ham and garlic, and then topped it with a fried egg.
Sweet potato ham hash recipe
- 3 tablespoons butter

- In a large skillet set over medium heat, add the butter. Once the butter melts, add in the sweet potatoes, smoked ham, paprika, salt and pepper.
- Cook for about 20 minutes until the sweet potatoes are soft. Add the garlic, and cook for a few minutes until the garlic is fragrant. Remove from heat, and cover with a lid.
