    Thanks, Christina. We’re working to have all our recipes updated and that every recipe has step by step pictures so that the recipes are easy to follow. This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes because by substituting regular potatoes to sweet potatoes, you keep the taste but lowering the glycemic index, so your blood glucose rises a touch slower with sweet potatoes than with white potatoes. Sweet potatoes also have more fiber than regular potatoes. Thrilled that you liked the recipe.

I don’t do fried eggs but this doesn’t look too bad. I love the idea of sweet potato has as well!

    I’m a fool for fried eggs…but I didn’t much like sweet potatoes until I found out that they could be made savory. I’m a complete fan now.

This looks like the perfect recipe for a family. It looks like it’s pretty straight-forward to make and I’m sure kids would love it!

    You’re so right. It’s easy to make a large batch of the hash and then fry up the eggs. I’m absolutely certain the kids would love it too!

This really does look like a pretty great dish. I wouldn’t have thought about doing sweet potatoes as a part of the hash. Add a little ham and eggs and it’s really just delicious. Very yummy.

Ooh, I’d love this with just the sweet potato, onion, dijon, and arugula!! Sweet potato and arugula is an amazing combo! Also, I love how your blog gets straight to the point with the recipe. I need to do mine like that!

    I know you’re vegan and the nice thing is that you can simply skip the eggs and ham to make this a fully plant-based meal. I’d say the hash also makes a mean side for those who go veg & vegan. And thanks for the kind words. We are working on making all the recipes easier to follow.
