How to make breakfast hash
Step 1: 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.
Step 2: Drizzle the potatoes with a little bit of olive oil, add the spices, and toss it together to coat. Place in a large 9 by 13 baking dish.
Step 3: place the potatoes in the oven.
Step 4: 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.
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.
Step 5: Once the onions are soft and the potatoes are done, mix it all together and it’s ready to serve!
The potatoes will need to be checked about every 15 – 20 minutes while roasting.
They should be very crispy once they are done.
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!
