Brussels Sprout Hash with Sweet Potato and Bacon

Brussels Sprout Hash with Sweet Potato and Bacon
Brussels sprouts have to be one of my favourite fall green vegetables and I had been meaning to try something new with them, a brussels sprout hash. Hash is a dish that often consists of diced meat, onions and potatoes and it is typically served as a breakfast dish along with eggs. I was thinking that it would be great fun to change things up a bit and do brussels sprouts for breakfast in a 'hash' along with some bacon, onions and sweet potato served with fried eggs! Brussels sprouts can be a little on the bitter side so I went with sweet potatoes for this hash to balance things out and the bacon adds a nice smokiness and saltiness. Hash is super easy to make and it is a one pan dish as you can cook the eggs in the pan in little holes or wells made in the hash and you can transfer the pan to the oven to finish cooking the tops of the eggs.

The brussels sprout hash with sweet potatoes and bacon turned out wonderfully well and I have to say that it is fun to have brussels sprouts for breakfast! I enjoy this brussels sprout hash so much that I have been making different versions of over the last few days and although I prefer it with sweet potatoes it also works with regular potatoes and even without the potatoes!

Both kimchi and bacon along with kimchi and sweet potatoes are amazing combinations and I have been meaning to try combining kimchi with brussels sprouts so I figured why not try a brussels sprout, sweet potato, kimchi and bacon hash! I quickly made the new version and I have to say that the spicy kimchi really works well with the brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, and salty bacon!

Of course I could not leave you without any runny egg yolk shots!

Nice recipe ! I love sweet potatoes, but not really brussels sprout... this recipe seems to be the good way for it to change :)

Em said...

Hey!
I made this recipe a few months back and LOVED it.
I would love some tips on how to make my over easy egg. I like mine runny, but can't ever seem to get it to the right "doneness".
Thanks in advance!

Kevin Lynch said...

Em: I normally cook my eggs sunny side up and it is just a matter of keeping an eye on them. For over easy I would opt for covering the pan with a see through lid so that the tops steam and cook rather than trying to flip them.
