Sweet Potato and Beet Hash

  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 4 strips of bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 3 large beets, scrubbed and cubed
  • 1 large sweet potato, scrubbed and cubed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 34 eggs
  • 2 green onions, chopped


  1. In a large cast iron skillet over medium-low heat, cook the bacon until done but not crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside, leaving the fat.
  2. Add the onions to the pan and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the beets to the pan, and cook for 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add the sweet potato to the pan and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, until both the beets and sweet potatoes are fork-tender. Allow pieces to brown on the bottom of the pan during this process!
  5. Add the salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and return the bacon to the pan. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Make three (or four) slight wells in the mixture, crack an egg into each well, and cover the pan with a lid. Let cook until the eggs are set, about 5 minutes.
  7. When the eggs are done, remove from heat, top with chopped green onions, and enjoy!
