Serve em’ up!
My favorite way to serve this Sweet Potato Hash is to top it with one or two fried eggs that are cooked to your liking. So stinkin’ good! However, if eggs do not agree with you, like in Jess’s case, it’s quite tasty as is, making this a perfect egg-free breakfast option. (Jessica likes hers with a big slice of tomato and a spoonful of her homemade sauerkraut on the side.)
