Step Two

Chopping the ingredients for this recipe is the hardest part. You do want to make sure the sweet potato and apple are chopped fairly small so that they will cook fast.

Once you’re ready to make the hash, heat up a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and let it start to cook for about 2-3 minutes so it starts to release its grease.

Step Three

Add the chopped sweet potatoes, apples, shallots or onion, and the fresh rosemary to the skillet. Cover the skillet with a lid and let the mixture cook for 10 minutes on medium heat.

Step Four

Once the sweet potato and apple mixture has started to soften, reduce the heat to low and break the eggs on top of the hash. Cover the skillet again and let the eggs cook for about 5 more minutes.
