Sweet potato hash

Sweet potato hash

Ahh… good mornings. They seriously make the whole day better. I had one of them recently. I woke up on time, refreshed, and (mostly) prepared for the day. I also remembered that I made a sweet potato sausage hash the night before! After dicing a sweet potato, red pepper, and onion, the next steps are straightforward: heat, mix, and eat, and try to save some for tomorrow’s breakfast.

It was by far the best part of my already good morning. Because I had breakfast in mind when making the dish, I eased off on some seasonings. Still, with the peppers and onions, and the richness of the sausage, I felt my palate was very well awakened in the nicest way possible, like a loved one whispering good morning in your ear with a gentle rub on your back.

I look forward to making this dish again, and equally important, having another really good morning!

What you need

1 lb ground pork
1 large sweet potato, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt

How you do it

Start with the ground pork with parsley, pepper, and salt. Heat that in a medium frying pan at a low-med temperature until browned, about 7 minutes each side.

While that’s heating, dice your potato, red pepper, and yellow onion.

After the pork is fully cooked, take it out of the pan, set aside, and add the onions and red pepper in the pork grease, cooking until caramelized. Then add the diced sweet potatoes to the mix.

When the potatoes are about three-fourths cooked (soft on the outside and hard on the inside, takes about 10 minutes), add the pork back into the pan. Cook for about 10 more minutes or until potatoes are soft.

Serve hot.

Sometimes I add a fried egg to the top of mine and eat with some fresh fruit and a green tea.
