Waking up in darkness on winter solstice makes me want to brew a nice cup of tea first thing and enjoy a hardy breakfast while watching the sun rise.
Place a perfectly made farm fresh poached egg atop a simple hash of diced sweet potatoes (leave skins on if you choose), chopped onions, thyme, kosher salt and pepper to taste and you’ll have a wonderful sunny meal to wake up to.
To make the hash, place all ingredients (except the egg) into an iron skillet with olive oil and let the sweet potatoes caramelize a bit over medium to medium high heat to add flavor and some crunch. Stir often, careful not to burn the onions.
Break the egg over the hash and let the potatoes soak up the creamy yoke. Enjoy savoring every bite!
