Sweet Potato Hash

Sweet potatoes may just be the most majestic carb on the the face of the planet. 

I’m serious, they are filled with potassium, vitamin A, Vitamin B6, magnesium, Vitamin C, and fiber.

As I’ve mentioned in the past Instagram is one of my top places where I find ideas of what to make. So this is via Nom Nom Paleo- and her recipe was being featured on the Whole 30 Instagram account.

I have had my food processor for maybe 4 years now, only in the last 1-2 has it really become a staple for me (at this point I’m not sure I could grate a potato by hand….). There were several of the blades that came with my processor that I had never used before- and the grater was one of them.

So when I saw this recipe I thought to myself:

  1. I have to make this
  2. I guess it’s time to test out that grater 

Turned out amazing. It took my longer to cut the dang potatoes than it did to get my hash. 


Sweet Potato Hash, with a Sunny Side Egg

  • Servings: 1-2
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1 large sweet potato 
  • 2 large eggs
  • Sea salt 
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder 
  • Chili powder


  1. Either hand grate your sweet potatoes (bless your soul if you do this) or use the grating attachment in your food processor 
  2. Cut your sweet potatoes in thin enough pieces to feed in, and commence to feeding them into the processor (honestly cutting the potatoes takes more time than using your processor to grate)
  3. When you’re almost done grating your potatoes heat some butter or ghee in a skillet 
  4. Prior to adding your sweet potatoes into the skillet- season them to your desired tastes (Flavor God Everything seasoning works well too) 
  5. Add your potatoes in your skillet, stir and flip a few times until the edges are crisp 
  6. Top your hash with a beautiful sunny side up egg, and maybe a little sriracha, and enjoy

This “hash” is amazingly versatile- you can use it for breakfasts but also as part of salads and sides. I used two large sweet potatoes to get the big batch I made. 


  1. What kind of siracha do you use? The commercial is full of yucky ingredients- potassium sorbate and sodium bisulfite as preservatives.

    1. Well I either make my own (chili paste, garlic, white vinegar- etc) or I do use the commercial variety for convenience as I have yet to see any real evidence indicating potassium sorbate and sodium bisulfite are not safe.

  2. Here is an easy way to ‘shred’ those hard, sweet potatoes! Microwave\steam for about 5 minutes. Let cool then peel. Cut into chunks & toss in blender (Ninja) & just pulse enough to shred. Worked like a charm! Bets that nasty ‘knuckle scrapping’ grater! Hash browns turned out great! Thanks!
