I love sweet potato and this particular recipe is one of my special addictions… The savory taste of sweet potato and caramelized onion crashing against the bitter taste of turnip creates an intense contrast… and it is intensely satisfying.
You will notice that there is only 4 eggs on the picture. For that recipe, I used a small deep dish, the end result was very good but the cooking time was insanely long!
I recommend using a wider dish to spread the mixture evenly, about 1 inch thick. That will create a more dry/crisp hash.
You can either serve this recipe for lunch or as a hearty breakfast. I served it with toast and fruits, it was perfect!
To add more flavor, use cast-iron skillet to create a nice browning crust on the bottom, then transfer directly to the oven.
Sprinkle some chopped kale on top of the dish right before placing it in the oven. It adds more flavor and kale is full of nutrients!
