  • sweet potato

How to make breakfast hash

russet potatoes and sweet potatoes for hash
First, peel and dice up some sweet potatoes and russet potatoes.

I like the mixture of both sweet and russet to add some flavor and texture variety.

Drizzle the potatoes with a little bit of olive oil, sprinkle on a few spices, and put them in the oven!

fresh garlic and onion
While the potatoes are cooking, sautee up some fresh garlic and onion in a skillet on the stove.

This really amps up the depth of flavor in this dish and I highly recommend not skipping this step.

You can make this dish without the fresh garlic and onion, but I really prefer the taste this way!

Garlic and onion are a great base to any recipe.

If you really want that extra something in your recipe, add some fresh garlic and onion.

Even if you don’t typically like the flavors alone, you will be surprised at how much flavor depth they can add to simple recipes.

Trust me, it is not going to taste predominantly of garlic and onion.

caramelized garlic and onion for breakfast hash
Cook them until they’re all browned and caramelized looking like this!

I usually sautee them for around 5-10 minutes, but depending on the pan you use it may take longer.

Just look for the onions to caramelize and soften up until they start to brown and aren’t crunchy any more.

The potatoes will need to be checked about every 15 – 20 minutes. 

They should be very crispy once they are done roasting.

The combination of high heat and frequent stirring will help us get those crunchy yummy edges that are everyone’s favorite!

I could eat this vegan hash straight from the pan.

This recipe uses a similar technique to my Famous Crispy Potato Casserole, and I always get so many compliments when I use this method of slow roasting.

The flavor is just incredible!

I use a spatula to scrape up the potatoes that stick to the pan each time I stir.

This will help get that crispiness on all the sides of the potatoes.

Crispy = perfect potato texture in my opinion!

I usually enjoy ketchup when I eat my potatoes, but this doesn’t even need it!

The flavor is so good all on it’s own!

how big (in cups) is one serving?

Great recipe! Provides enough filling for 10 large tortillas. I did the calorie calculation on My Fitness Pal and came up with 549 calories per serving if you use three 10 ounce russet potatoes and one 10 ounce sweet potato. This is not a low calorie meal but most people would find it very filling and nutritious. The calorie count of 224 per serving must be without the potatoes and using small tortillas. These are handy to have on hand in the freezer and I will definitely be making them again!

If I wanted to add “Just Plant-Based Egg” to this recipe, when would I incorporate it?

I would just cook it and serve it on the side, as I do with regular eggs.

Anyone make these without oil? Trying to cut oil out as it has so many calories.
