Sometimes, you just want something simple.
Dinner seems impossible, the day was too long, the night is filled with more work than you care to think about. On days like this, I like to think breakfast for dinner.
Pancakes. Waffles. Bacon and sausage.
This sweet potato hash is an easy solution that will have you ready to face the rest of the evening, full of carbs and protein. Safest Choice™ Eggs are the star of this show, and lucky for the both of us, they sponsored this recipe post. Now, while I can’t help you with your paperwork, I can get you fed. I know you have SO MUCH WORK TO DO.
You can thank me later. I’ll be on Facebook.
Sweet Potato Hash with Sunny Eggs
- 3 cups cubed sweet potatoes
- 1 Onion, thinly sliced
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- salt and pepper
- 6 Large Safest Choice™ Eggs
Cut the sweet potatoes into cubes and boil them until they are tender.
In a sauté pan place the butter when melted add the onions, pepper, garlic, and sweet potatoes and sauté until they get a little color. Season with salt and pepper.
In a frying pan over medium heat, prepare the eggs sunny-side up. Serve over hash.
Sunny Side Up
Oh, but you want to know how to make the perfect sunny side up egg. I see.
No problem. There are a few tips to help you out. You can thank me later.
Use a true NON-STICK pan. That goes a long way. If that’s not available, use a heavy skillet, and be sure to coat is with enough oil or butter to competely cover the surface.
Make sure the pan is hot enough. If you can drop a bit of water onto the oil and it disappears, you are good to go. This will get your whites holding that nice round shape you want. Don’t let it get too hot though – your whites will burn before the yolk stand a chance.
Crack the eggs one at a time into a bowl. One at a time. One at a time. Then, slowly pour that egg into the hot pan, reduce the heat to low, and watch the magic happen. Repeat with each egg. One at a time. One at a time.
Allow the egg to cook a bit, until the whites are completely cooked and the yolk is still jiggly. You know how you like your yolks, I’m not here to tell you that. If you do want that yolk more done, you can cover the pan with a lid, but be sure to check on it from time to time to make sure it doesn’t over cook.
There you have it, the perfect Sunny Egg!
Some people are not a fan of using eggs that may not be fully cooked, or are afraid they aren’t safe, despite new food and safety information. But this dish was made with truly SAFE Eggs.
Duh – Davidson’s Safest Choice™, Eggs, to be exact.
You’ve seen me post about them before, and you will again…I am a huge fan of Safest Choice.
I have been an ambassador for Safest Choice™ for nearly a year now, as a member of their Darling Dozen. Their eggs are pasteurized in the shell, before you ever get them! They taste the same (they’re eggs, after all), no weird chemicals were added, and they are already SAFE to consume, even before cooking! So…love cookie dough? Love Caesar Salad? These both include uncooked eggs. With Safest Choice, you’re good to go!
What is pasteurization? Pasteurization is a century-old process that destroys pathogens through simple heat, and is well- known for its role in making milk and juices safe to enjoy. To pasteurize a food means to destroy harmful microorganisms (e.g., bacteria and viruses) by applying a precise amount of heat for a specified period of time. This straightforward food safety technique was invented by French chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur in 1864. Pasteurization is an all natural process, in that it involves only heat (not chemicals or irradiation). Safest Choice eggs go through a series of warm water baths to eliminate bacteria. It’s that simple!
