When the weekend rolls around and you have a little extra time to make a special breakfast for yourself, make this breakfast hash! If you're a savoury breakfast person (me too!) then you're going to love this sweet potato breakfast hash. Made with fresh chorizo sausage, sweet potatoes and lots of spices, it's packed with flavour. The toppings make this breakfast even better, so don't skip on the avocado, cotija cheese and cilantro, oh and also the crispy fried eggs.
Although the ingredient list looks a little long, three of them are spices and of course, the cilantro, cheese and avocado are all optional.
Making this sweet potato sausage hash is really quite easy, which is perfect when you want a lazier savoury weekend breakfast.
The first step is to cook and brown the sausage. This will add lots of flavour to the dish, plus the fat that is released can be used to cook the rest of the ingredients, you'll only need a little bit of extra oil to get things going.
If you want to get the sausage nice and crispy (and who doesn't?!), leave the sausage to cook undisturbed (that means, no flipping after you've crumbled it) for a few minutes. Once one side is nice and browned, flip it around and continue cooking until completely cooked through. And then set this aside on a plate, leaving the fat from the sausages in the skillet.
In a large bowl, toss together the cubed sweet potato with the avocado oil, spices and salt.
Add the sweet potato to the same skillet and cook for about eight to nine minutes. Add the red onion and cook until everything is softened and the potato is fork tender, about 12 to 15 minutes more.
Next, toss in the corn and cook until it has thawed, about three to four minutes.
Return the chorizo to the skillet and toss to combine everything and heat the sausage again. Remove from the heat, and set aside.
Cook the eggs in a separate skillet until the whites are set and the yolk is still runny (or to your preference). Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the hash and top with a fried egg plus the additional toppings.
This sweet potato hash with eggs makes a great meal prep too!
Simply cook everything in advance and then reheat in the morning.
You can make a fresh egg to go with it in the morning, or make some medium boiled eggs to go with them and then slice them open when you're ready to eat.
This sweet potato breakfast hash can be enjoyed any time of the day. I love making this for dinner or even enjoying for lunch too. Don't limit a breakfast hash to something you can only enjoy in the morning!

When it comes to breakfast, I'm much more of a savory person and when the weekend hits and I have more time, I make this savory sweet potato breakfast hash.
Depending on how many servings you are making, you can cook the eggs in the same skillet as the hash, just move things around to make room.
