Healthy Wholefood Sweet Potato Hash Breakfast Plate

If sweet and savory is your thing, then this sweet potato hash breakfast plate is going to be one of your go-to Whole30 recipes. This recipe is a delicious and nutritious twist on popular hash browns. Using only a handful of ingredients, this recipe can be prepared in no time. Pair this recipe with fried eggs for a balanced, high-protein breakfast.

Do you have to serve this sweet potato hash with sunny-side-up eggs?

No, you don’t have to. You can also serve this hash brown plate with soft-boiled or hard-boiled eggs, salmon cakes, canned tuna, or avocado. All these combinations make for easy Whole30 recipes to kickstart your day.

Can you make hash brown patties instead?

Yes, you can! Season the grated sweet potatoes with salt and pepper, then portion it out. Press each portion into a patty and fry until golden and cooked through. Classic hash browns might be more desirable, but a hash brown plate is quicker and easier to prepare.

Can you prepare this breakfast dish using regular potatoes?

Yes, you can! If you are going to use regular potatoes, make sure you squeeze them out after grating, because they contain more moisture than sweet potatoes. However, we recommend giving this version a try because sweet potatoes are more nutritious. They may support healthy vision, and potentially support your immune system.

Is this Whole30 breakfast plate suitable for meal prep?

Absolutely! The best Whole30 recipes are ones that are meal prep-friendly. This dish is perfect because it is quick to prepare and tastes just as good the following days. After preparing the hash, divide it into airtight containers. Store it in the refrigerator with your desired side for up to 3 days. Serve it cold or warm for breakfast or lunch. To keep it a little interesting, you can serve the sweet potato hash with a different side each day.
