About this breakfast hash
There are so many ways to make this sheet pan hash, you’ll want to make a different variety every weekend!
Everyone loves roasted veggies and sausage, and if the brunch craze has taught us anything, it’s that there’s one foolproof way to improve any dish: put an egg on it! (The only question is: over easy, over medium, or over hard?)
This recipe uses a classic mix of diced sweet potatoes, onions, and breakfast sausage, but you can try it with green peppers, crumbled bacon, cooked crumbled chorizo, or hash brown potatoes.
And, if you’re in the mood for scrambled eggs, try whisking your eggs and pouring them over your sheet pan and baking until the dish is set. You’ll have an egg hash you can serve in tasty squares.
However you hash it out, you’ll be sure to come back to this recipe on the r-egg-ular. Too cheesy? Nah, a little sprinkle of shredded cheese is delicious on breakfast hash.
What you need
- Avocado or Olive Oil – This will help everything crisp up and also prevent things from sticking.
- Sweet Potatoes – Russet or yukon gold would also work if that’s what you prefer.
- Onion – Yellow, red, shallots, they’ll all work!
- Salt & Pepper – Of course!
- Maple Sausage Links – Turkey or pork, up to you!
- Eggs – These get put on towards the end of the cook time so you can control how well done they get.
- Fresh Herbs – These are for garnishing and freshening everything up. We recommend chives and parsley.
How to make it
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Toss diced onion and sweet potato with oil and spread on a rimmed sheet pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with sausage.
Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking time.
Create 4 areas on the sheet pan for the eggs. Crack the eggs into each section and cook for another 7-11 minutes.
Remove from the oven and garnish with chives and parsley. Enjoy immediately!
How to make this recipe your own
- Meat variations: Substitute your favorite breakfast meat like cubed honey ham, bacon pieces, or crumbled sausage. If you use cooked ham or uncooked bacon, you can add them 10 minutes into cooking when you stir the potatoes, as they won’t take as long to cook through as the uncooked maple sausage links.
- Hash brown potatoes: If you don’t have sweet potatoes on hand, you can use frozen hash brown potatoes. Bake for about 20 minutes, or according to package directions, before using a spoon to make wells in the hash browns for the eggs. Put the pan back in the over for 7 to 11 minutes until eggs are cooked to your liking.
- Add-Ins: If you like cheesy breakfast hash, try a little gruyere or blue cheese, a few walnuts, and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup. Cheddar is also always a great choice and goes really well with the fresh chive garnish.
- Add spice: If you like a little heat with your hash, you can top with sriracha or hot sauce, or mix a little sour cream and sriracha together.
Make Ahead Ideas
If you’re making this hash on a busy morning, you can prep the ingredients the day before: dice the onion, peel and cut the potatoes, chop the sausage, chop your herbs, and store all ingredients separately in the refrigerator.
If you peel and cut your potatoes ahead of time, make sure to store them in water in the fridge so that they don’t turn brown.
Store leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days. It is not recommended to save the eggs if the yolks are runny.
Reheat your hash on the stove top in a pan, and crack a fresh egg if you like. Or, serve leftover hash as a side with a bowl of chili or a simple grilled cheese.
