Sweet Potato Hash with Fried Eggs

Being a Mom of two, I sometime feel like there isn’t enough hours in a day. Between errands, housework, entertaining my daughter and picking my son up from school; by 4 o’clock, I am exhausted and often looking for something quick for dinner. Especially with the days getting warmer, the last thing I want to do, is stand over a hot stove preparing dinner. This recipe is quick, easy and healthy, three of my favourite words when it comes to dinner. I decided to take my sweet potato fry recipe and convert it into sweet potato hash browns. Topped with a fried egg, this is a quick complete meal, perfect for those busy nights.

Sweet Potato Hash with Fried Eggs


  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • a dash or two of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 C maple syrup
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme, stripped and leaves chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley, for garnish


  1. In a large non stick pan heat the olive oil, over medium heat. Add in the onion and cook for 2 minutes. Add in sweet potatoes, season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper; cook for 3 minutes. Add the maple syrup and thyme into the skillet, stir to coat sweet potatoes and cook until soft.
  2. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, preheat a second skillet over medium low heat. Melt butter in skillet and once it starts to foam crack in eggs. Season with salt and pepper and cover with a lid. Cook eggs to preferred doneness.

To serve:

Place sweet potato hash onto 4 plates. Top with 1 egg each and sprinkle with chopped parsley.


Serve with toast if desired.
