Sweet Potato Hash

Since reading about sweet potatoes being a “superfood” I have tried to come up with a creative way to get my mini-monsters to eat them without coating them in brown sugar.  For some reason none of them are really convinced that potatoes are good in any form.  I have no clue where they hail from because their daddy and I LOVE potatoes…in any form.  But this is one recipe that they actually eat all the ingredients as long as they are mixed together and stuffed into a tortilla.


First I cut up the sweet potato.  This is one large one cut up.  One large one will feed all three of my minis.


I throw them into a heated skillet on medium heat with a some olive oil until they start to brown and soften.


While the potatoes are cooking I prepare the other ingredients.  This is some chopped up sandwich ham.  I also will cut up any vegetables in the fridge that might be starting to go bad.  As you can see in the picture, my minis like to taste test everything.


Next I whip up the eggs.  This is a carton of 18 eggs because everyone in my family LOVES eggs…in any form.  I whip them with a little sour cream.  Helps make them fluffier.


Once the potatoes are softened I turn down the skillet to a med-high heat and throw in the meat and veggies.  Once they are cooked to liking I save the eggs for last since they cook quickly in a cast iron skillet.  Stir until eggs are scrambled.

I serve this either plain or on a tortilla with a little sour cream, cheese and fresh salsa which is optional.  Kid tested and approved.


  • 1 or 2 large sweet potatoes (depending on how many you are wanting to feed)
  • chopped vegetables (any that you feel like throwing in there)
  • 2-3 cups of chopped ham
  • eggs (like I said I use a carton of 18 since we are egg lovers around here)
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. What a fantastic idea! I’d have never thought to cook sweet potatoes like that. My kids love white potato but turn their noses up at sweet potato, even though they all ate it well as babies! Here we go into another fab week of #foodpornthursdays x


  2. Oh my goodness I can’t believe you go through 18 eggs – I thought my kids were egg obsessed 🙂 We love sweet potato around here as well – haven’t cooked them like that in a skillet before though – will have to give it a try. #foodpornthursdays

    1. They really cook up nicely in a cast iron skillet with a little olive oil. Yummy in my tummy as my minis say 😉 Thanks for popping over and saying hello and of course for linking up with us at #foodpornthursdays.


  3. This looks like an easier version of a crustless quiche I make. It’s a great way to use up things in the fridge that need to be eaten. Thank you for sharing this. Now I have one more way to get everything used.
