We love this dish in our house.  It is so easy to throw together, SO healthy, and so satisfying and tasty at the same time.  And I must admit this is really Neil’s recipe.  He is the one that first came up with it and he is the one that always cooks it.  So I cannot take credit.  And I do think he originally got the idea from the internet so there is probably someone that deserves the credit for at least the basic idea of this recipe – but he can’t remember where he first saw it, so if that changes I will be sure to give a shout out.  Cause let me tell you this one is a winner!

While I think of this more of a breakfast hash, we actually usually have it for dinner.  I think it makes a great brunch, a great dinner by itself, of you could even omit the egg and have it as a side dish!  It is super versatile and you can add different ingredients as you please so it is a really fun and really easy option.

If you are having it as a breakfast and want something sweet to go with it, I highly recommend my peanut butter chocolate glazed donuts or my bread pudding breakfast bake.  If you want it as a side dish it goes really well with my cracker breaded chicken tenders or honey sriracha turkey meatballs.

Let’s Make Some Sweet Potato & Kale Breakfast Hash!

So this is a really loose recipe.  We never really measure what we use and it is really up to you!

I love a lot of sweet potato so we always use about two.  Dice them up into really small cubes this way they don’t take forever to soften.  You will saute them first with your onion to get them going.

When it comes to kale – I have never really measured this either.  I buy big bags at the store (I will look at the size next time 🙂 ) and use about half.  The kale will wilt down a good bit (not as bad as spinach don’t worry) so feel free to be generous.  The hardest part is fitting it all in the pan!  So I would recommend using a large pan for this meal.

Then the last recommendations I have are for frying your egg-  you definitely want the runny yolk for this because it will ooze into your hash and make it ten times better.  And if you want to make it EVEN better be sure to sprinkle some Trader Joe’s everything but the bagel seasoning on your egg while you cook it.  Life. Changing.

As I mentioned before this is great for breakfast but we really love it for dinner as well!  So I hope you love it as much as we do!

This sweet potato kale hash makes for a great homemade brunch and an equally satisfying quick dinner.  Made with lots of veggies and topped with a fried egg- it is light yet filling and really satisfying too!


  • 1/2 a big bag of kale
  • 2 large sweet potatoes – diced
  • 1 red onion – diced
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Eggs
  • Optional: cayenne for some spice!
  • Optional: Everything But the Bagel seasoning for your eggs


  1. Saute sweet potatoes and onions on a pan over medium heat for 7 minutes until they start to soften.
  2. Add in garlic and cook until fragrant.
  3. Add in a few tablespoons of water and cover for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add kale and cook until tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Fry and egg to desired doneness (I like to add Trader Joe’s ebtb seasoning) and serve on top!


I definitely like this with a runny egg yolk – it adds a little something!  But if you don’t like runny yolks you can cook your egg until it is done.

Can add other veggies if you’d like! We have added bell peppers and jalapenos before.
