Easy Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash Recipe
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 22-28 minutes
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 lb. small purple potatoes, cut in half
8 oz. Brussels sprouts, cut in half
1 large red onion, roughly chopped
3-4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 t. onion powder
3 T. extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
6 large eggs
Optional garnish: 2 T. crushed kale chips or dried herbs of choice
PRO TIP: Roasting vegetables in a hot oven is one of the best ways to enhance their natural flavor and sweetness. It is also a great way to use up left over vegetables hiding out in the refrigerator. Most sturdy vegetables are good candidates for roasting, including broccoli, red onion, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, carrots, fennel, eggplant, kale, peppers, and many others.

1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. If using parchment paper, lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl, toss sweet potatoes, purple potatoes, Brussels sprouts, red onion, garlic, onion powder, and olive oil until vegetables are well coated. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
PRO TIP: If necessary, use two half baking sheets or a larger three-quarter size sheet pans to allow enough room to spread the vegetables out in a single layer without overcrowding. This will allow them to roast evenly without steaming.
3. Spread the sweet potato mixture onto the prepared sheet pan in a single layer without overcrowding and roast in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Stir vegetables and continue roasting another 8-10 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are fork tender.
PRO TIP: For nicely browned potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and other cut veggies, position with cut side down on sheet pan prior to roasting.
4. Remove sheet pan from oven and create 6 round, evenly spaced openings among the vegetables. Carefully pour an egg into each opening, keeping the yolk intact. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired, and return pan to the oven.
PRO TIP: For best results, crack each egg into a small bowl before transferring onto the sheet pan. Repeat this process, one egg at a time, until all eggs are on the pan. This helps keep them from breaking as you add them to the pan.
Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until the egg whites are set and the yolks reach the desired level of doneness. Remove sheet pan from oven and garnish with crushed kale chips or dried herbs of choice, if desired, and serve immediately with the roasted vegetables.
Great way to make breakfast for the whole family (or to feed a crowd – just make more sheet pans of food!) all at one time, right?
