Prep time: 10 minutes. Cook time: 16-20 minutes. Serves: 4-5


1lb Italian sausage (remove casings)

1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes

1 sweet potato, diced

1 yellow onion, diced

1 hot pepper, diced (I used a jalapeño)

6-8 eggs

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon fat (oil) of choice (I used bacon fat)

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Heat up a large cast iron skillet or Dutch oven under medium heat (I prefer a Dutch oven for the depth as the eggs will rise in the oven).

Add your fat and minced garlic.

When the garlic becomes fragrant, mix in in your onions, sweet potatoes and sausage to begin to cook down.

Use a wooden spoon or whatever you have on hand to break up the sausage and mix around to incorporate everything. Cover to help steam the sweet potatoes.

Let cook for about 8-10 minutes or until sausage is browned and sweet potatoes are tender.

Add your tomatoes and spices and mix together.

If you are not using a cast iron skillet/Dutch oven, pour your hash into a baking dish.

Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk thoroughly.

Pour eggs into the hash and mix thoroughly using a wooden spoon. 

Bake for 8-10 minutes depending how done you prefer your eggs.
