Poached Eggs with Sweet Potato Hash

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.


Not just for breakfast, this hash makes a colorful side dish with any meal.

Break the egg over the hash and let the potatoes soak up the creamy yoke. Enjoy savoring every bite!
