Sweet potato hash & eggs for 2


Most mornings  we wake up in our puppy pile with feet in faces and legs tangled up and we wipe our eyes and decide not to make breakfast.  Usually we grab  an orange and a cup of coffee or cocoa and  hang out until the papa has to go to work and then brunch comes around and we make our loaded peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches.

We aren’t morning people, at least the girls of the house are not morning people and we need a few hours to adjust to daylight. Some mornings, like this morning,  I wake up with extra energy and want a hot meal and so we turn on music and all crowd into our teeny tiny kitchen to cook.

This morning baby Scout wanted to be held in the sling and the girl child Hunter wanted to see  everything I was doing and with only one free hand I needed something quick and easy to make. My sweet potatoes were being neglected on the counter  and we all agreed hash browns are the best thing ever.  This recipe is very quick to make and  for all you mamas you can indeed make it one-handed although ( as I discovered) your eggs might not look as pretty as usual.
