But there you go again, there you go again, making me love you more!  I’m talking about the sweet potato here people.  I just can’t get enough.  The trick to making a quick sweet potato hash is to precook the cubed potato in the microwave for a few minutes.  The cubes get soft and tender and will crisp up and caramelize so much faster.  Give this one a try!

Sweet Potato Hash with Bacon and Green Onions for Two


1 sweet potato, peel on, cubed 1/2″
2 bacon slices, chopped
2 green onions, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Serve with poached eggs and barbecue sauce


1.  Place cubed sweet potato in a microwave-safe bowl and add a tablespoon of water.  Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes.

2.  Cook bacon in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes.  Add precooked sweet potatoes and cook until potatoes begin to caramelize, about 5 minutes.

3.  Sprinkle green onions over the potatoes and season with salt, pepper, and paprika.

4.  Serve with poached eggs and barbecue sauce.


If you want to bump up this breakfast, you might add black beans, diced bell peppers, and tomatoes to the hash.  Crumbled Mexican cheese, such as cotija would go well.
