  • 1 lb Bacon About 10-12 strips
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 Pounds Sweet Potatoes Diced in small pieces. About ½".
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 Pound Brussels Sprouts End cut off and diced in half
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic Minced or pressed
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano


  • large cast iron or other non-stick skillets over medium heat. Add in chopped-up bacon and start to cook until brown and to desired crispiness.
  • Transfer bacon from skillet to a plate lined with a paper towel. Drain bacon grease into a safe container. Leave just a little behind so that it coats the pan.
  • Add in the olive oil and allow to slightly warm up.
  • Add in the sweet potatoes and salt and cook until they are soft and tender. The salt gets added in at this step because potatoes can take some time to absorb the salt which enhances the flavor. Don't want until the end to salt it.
  • Add in the minced garlic and allow to cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  • Add in the Brussels sprouts, parsley, and oregano and allow to cook until they start to turn soft, but still have a slight crunch to them.
  • Add the bacon back in and cook until it all returns to eating temp.
  • Transfer to plates and if desired add a fried egg to the top. Over easy eggs have that runny yoke that acts as a natural sauce. This is the recommended way to serve it.


  • Other veggies: This sweet potato hash can be substituted with other veggies. Swap out the brussels sprouts for broccoli, zucchini, squash, peppers, or any other veggies you have on hand. Just be mindful of how much time each different veggie will take to cook.
  • No egg: You can also leave off the fried egg and replace it with a hot sauce or an easy garlic aioli.
  • Make it vegetarian or vegan: This hash really does stand well without the bacon as well. If you choose to leave it out just skip that step altogether and start off by cooking the potatoes in olive oil and salt.
  • Gluten-free: This dish is already gluten-free!
This sweet potato and brussels sprouts breakfast hash will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days. After that, the brussels sprouts tend to take on an off-putting taste and texture.
