Breakfast Hash

May 12, 2014 |  by  |  Gluten-free, Recipes

I love breakfast. I love a group breakfast with friends and family even more. I have fond memories of growing up with a houseful of my parent’s friends pretty much every Sunday cooking, eating, drinking, and laughing. And, most likely, contemplating what drive we were going to go on that day or the next weekend since weekends drives were a regular part of my childhood. I don’t think I was always totally into those drives but I can now appreciate the fact that we were out discovering and exploring new places right in our own backyard, the Central Coast.

Sweet potato hash is our go-to breakfast most weekends because it’s easy, satiating, and delicious. I usually make a big batch so we have leftovers for the week. The ingredient amounts here are guidelines and can be tweaked to your liking.

Confused on what the difference is between sweet potatoes and yams? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It seems we’ve been mislead and those Thanksgiving candied yams were, most likely, sweet potatoes. Read on here.
