Southwest Sweet Potato Hash with Pico de Gallo

Has anyone seen the new Beauty and the Beast?! I did last night with my Mom, and OMG. No words can even describe how wonderful it is. It doesn’t stray off from the original, the music is amazing, and Emma Watson was the perfect pick for Belle. I left the theatre in awe last night, and woke up still amazed at how wonderful it was! I heard that Disney is remaking 11 of their movies – my head and heart literally wants to explode.

Ok well your probably not reading to hear me rant about how much I love Disney movies, you probably were lead in here by either the “hash”, “sweet potato”, or “pico de gallo” words in the recipe title, so let’s talk about that…

I love breakfast, and brunch, and anything that has to do with “morning” food.  And on weekends when we have nothing planned, there’s nothing I love more than waking up and cooking a big breakfast, and this is what we make. Hash has become a morning staple in our house, not only is it easy to make, but it’s even better for left overs.

One of the best things about this recipe is the pico de gallo. Since the hash and eggs are warm from the oven, this cool crisp topping gives it much needed flavor.

Obviously we also make this on the weeknights for meals, because who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? We also almost always make this when we have people staying over. I normally prep the ingredients the day before, that way when you wake up you just have to cook them in the skillet and oven, top them and serve. Saves a bunch of time, and people love it!

Sorry for this image, when I put the hash in the oven, one of the eggs ran away :(. Anyway, here I just topped it with the fresh pico de gallo, and then after I added some avocado and extra cilantro. Wah-la, a delicious filling breakfast (or dinner)!
