This Kale and Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash is gluten free, grain free, dairy free, vegetarian and paleo!
Ever have one of those mornings when you just don’t know what to eat for breakfast? Your usual eggs and toast aren’t calling your name, pancakes and waffles are too sweet for your palate so early in the day and the thought of a green smoothie makes you want to bang your head against the kitchen counter? Yeah, that was me this weekend. I stood staring at the contents of my fridge for way too long before deciding to give up on breakfast. And just as I closed the fridge door and lifted my head, my eyes landed on the bowl of sweet potatoes and onions sitting on top of my microwave. And just like in the movies (not really), a breakfast recipe was born.
Okay, okay, okay. So maybe my morning wasn’t as dramatic as I’m making it out to seem, but I was hungry! Or should I say hangry? Seems to be the word of the moment, don’t you think? Seriously, that word is everywhere. But whatever I was doesn’t matter now. All that matters is the end result – this deliciously warm and savory kale and sweet potato breakfast hash. Just look at it, you guys! Don’t you just want to stick your face in and start chomping?!
Made with sauteed onions, kale fresh from the garden, golden sweet potatoes and savory herbs like rosemary and sage, this breakfast hash hit the spot.
If there was anything that could make this hash better, I found it. And “it” was a sunny side up egg. Don’t get me wrong – the hash by itself is a perfectly delicious meal or side, but there is something about adding a bright yellow egg yolk to this that makes it feel so decadent, sinful and dare I say, sexy. In practical terms, the egg yolks also help keep you fuller for longer and are packed with all the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K along with tons of other nutrients. They’re so good, one of my favorite bloggers, Liz Wolfe of Real Food Liz, even wrote an absolutely amazing book titled Eat the Yolks. Not going to lie, she’s one of my girl crushes.
