Sweet Potato Hash
Sweet Potato Hash


  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, minced
  • 1 large leek - halved lengthwise, rinsed, and cut into ½-inch slices
  • 3 sprigs thyme, leaves stripped and chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook sweet potato and Yukon Gold potatoes at a boil until tender but retaining their shape, 6 to 8 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onion and leek in oil until browned, about 8 minutes.
  3. Stir potatoes and thyme with the onion mixture and sauté until potatoes are browned and crispy, about 15 minutes more; season with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper to serve.
Mealthy tip:

Top this hash with fried eggs to add more protein and make it a single-dish meal.

This hash has the flavors reminiscent of my favorite breakfast place in Seattle. It's simple and so delicious! I added some chopped red bell pepper in it as well for extra, extra flavor.

Love the spicy sweet potato hash. I did spiralized sweet potatoes instead, but other than that kept the recipe the same and it was really yummy.
