That’s a different story!

Weekend breakfast is all about eggs.

I don’t want to spend the entire morning in the kitchen cooking up a morning feast, but if I don’t serve Mr. Mike a hearty breakfast before he gets started on his honey do list, I can’t expect much to get done.

Most often you’ll find a cheesy vegetable packed frittata with fresh fruit on the menu, but this morning I was in the mood for potatoes with my eggs.

Fried Eggs and Sweet Potato Hash
Shake It Up! Russet, red or Yukon Gold potatoes would work equally as well. Take paper towel and squeeze some of the water out first so they brown better.
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, minced
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 large green onion, sliced
  1. Preheat a small skillet over medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray.
  2. Combine sweet potatoes and thyme and add to the pan. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  3. Fry stirring frequently to keep from burning for 2 minutes, then reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for 5 minutes until potatoes are almost soft.
  4. Put potatoes to the edges of the pan making a well in the middle.
  5. Add butter to the well in the middle, then crack in the eggs. Sprinkle with pepper.
  6. Top eggs with 1 tablespoon of water to allow for a bit of steam to get the cooking.
  7. Cover with a lid and cook eggs to desired doneness.
  8. Remove eggs from heat and serve with onion.
