My kids LOVE eating breakfast for dinner and I love the ease of making pancakes, eggs, and fruit for a yummy weeknight meal. A few months ago, I started a new tradition and it has forced me to become more creative with my cooking. I created a menu board and each of my children gets a weeknight dedicated to their dinner choice. I have specific rules (no repeats the following week, no takeout, etc.) but it has been a fun way for me to think of new ideas and my kids love being part of menu planning. Breakfast for dinner tends to make a frequent appearance, so this week I made my own variation of sweet potato hash, and it was a big hit! An easy meal that was very filling. My oldest son even added some hot sauce to his and loved it. This recipe was inspired by a few different pinterest recipes, this was the version that I created and it was delicious!
Sweet Potato Hash and Sunny Side Up Eggs
2-3 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1/4 sweet yellow onion, diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
Eggs (based on your family)
Salt & pepper
Paprika (I used about 1/2 teaspoon)
Sage (about 1 teaspoon)
In a large skillet, heat olive oil and add onion, saute for about 1 minute, then add diced sweet potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and stir well. Cover and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes (or until potatoes are tender). Next, using your spatula, create a small circle for your eggs. Crack eggs into circle and season with salt, pepper, and paprika, then cover. Cook eggs for about 5 minutes, or until desired consistency.
