Sweet potato hash with an egg

Remember when I told you about all the good stuff in Eggland’s Best eggs? I wanted to make something different that featured the egg and I came up with a sweet potato hash. To be honest, I had to use what was in the house already. Willie always tells me I’m the master of making something out of nothing, fast.

Hash usually has some not so healthy things in it like fatty meats or cheeses or whatever your heart my desire but I wanted to try a more health conscious version for everyone to enjoy.

Sweet potato hash with an egg

Serves: 1
Taking some things already in the fridge to create something delicious.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup diced cooked sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup white onion diced
  • 1 cup cooked turnip greens (I used frozen with diced turnips)
  • 1 tsp Mrs. Dash seasoning
  • 1 large Eggland’s Best Egg
Instructions
  1. Cook the sweet potato in the microwave or in the oven. Microwave is obviously easier but I usually bake up a bunch of sweet potatoes every week and I have them on hand. No skin on the potato for this recipe.
  2. Add turnip greens and onion in a fry pan with the Mrs. Dash seasoning and saute until the no liquid is left in the pan..
  3. Add the diced sweet potatoes. Stir until warm.
  4. It’s up to you if you want a sunny side up egg or to just scramble it in with the other. I recommend scrambling or sunny side upping your egg in an egg skillet or in another pan.
  5. Serve with egg on top.

I obviously didn’t sunny side up my egg right because it was brown on the edges. That is caused by not having enough liquid in the pan. I don’t use butter or oil so that is the problem. I can live with a few brown edges on my eggs and not get in a tizzy about it. If you can’t, you now know what to do.

All I added to my egg was some crushed black pepper and plated it with the egg on top of the hash! I think this would be a great brunch idea! It’s not quite breakfast but it’s not quite lunch but it is really good.

Setting up the week

Setting up the week

Good evening everyone! I’ve been meal prepping all day. To be honest, I’ve been trying to prep for an extended amount of time too because I’m going to be busy the next few weeks. I don’t want my meals to suffer. I’m trying to think ahead. Plus, I’ve learned the magic of buying in bulk from Sam’s Club and my crockpot. It’s just easier for me to prepare meals with the set it and forget it method. This weekend was kind of cool because we traveled to Houston again because I ran a half marathon on Saturday. That means we… View Post

For the love of root vegetables and apples

Everyone is very focused on the holidays and looking forward to Thanksgiving, right? Fall is my favorite season because of all the great foods that come back into season.  I wanted to share with you some of my favorites of the seasons.  Spoiler alert:  you will not see pumpkin on this list.  Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin but I feel like most people go ga-ga over pumpkin and now we’re in pumpkin overload.  I blame it on the pumpkin spice latte. Root vegetables: Before weight loss I never met a potato I didn’t like. I loved potatoes and… View Post

The king of grocery shopping

The king of grocery shopping

I spent the weekend with my best friend in Mississippi while Willie stayed behind to handle the dogs!  He also had to handle the grocery shopping so that we could successfully handle the Sunday meal prepping. For the record, my husband is AMAZING! I got to enjoy views like this and he got to take the dog to get his shots. Remember ho I told y’all Willie came in under budget for the grocery shopping?  He did it again.  Maybe I should start sending him to the store instead of going myself.  He did a really good job.  Our fridge… View Post

Sunday set up: meatballs, egg muffins,  raw “cookie dough”

Happy Sunday!  That means it’s time for meal prepping in our house.  This week I’ve been feeling uninspired with the meals.  We didn’t even make a grocery list when we headed to the store. It’s my job to deal with the lunch and Willie deals with the dinner.  Collectively we do breakfast and we each like different snacks so we do our own snacks. Breakfast: Egg white muffins and overnight oats. We’ve been eating the same thing for breakfast everyday for almost two years. It’s quick and easy and we can take it with us if we need. Lunch: Meatballs,… View Post
