A few years ago, I tried the Whole30, which essentially cuts out sugar, grains, dairy, and legumes. It was a little too restrictive for me to continue long-term. Eating out was crazy difficult, I missed quinoa, and it’s amazing how many things have sugar in them (like most bacons?!)!

But one of the foods I loved making for my Whole30 compliant breakfasts was sweet potato hash. It was so simple. Just 3 ingredients – sweet potato, apple, and onion sauteed in a skillet. It was just sweet enough, filling, and it felt like it was a special treat since it was out of my breakfast norm.

Scoop, serve, and enjoy! I said that this recipe serves 4 because I like that egg-potato ratio best, but these are pretty generous servings. If you wanted to crack 6 eggs on top, that would absolutely work!

Helpful hint – mooching fresh rosemary from your mother’s rosemary plant also adds a little something special. I highly recommend it.

    1. Absolutely! If you bake it for 10 minutes, the yolks should be firm inside, but you could totally just serve this alongside scrambled or fried eggs! Truthfully, I just love one-pot meals because it saves me dishes. ;-)
