Sweet Potato Hash

A healthy and filling dish that can be served on the side or in a bowl with your favorite protein choice. Sweet, salty, and super tasty, this sweet potato hash will become a new favorite.

I love having healthy side dishes to add to a meal. This sweet potato hash is great during the fall and winter seasons, but we also love Baked Zucchini Fries and Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts.

Easy + DElicious Sweet potato hash

This sweet potato hash is one of my all-time favorite side dishes. It’s healthy, but tastes AMAZING. So many wonderful flavors coming together—the sweet potatoes, onions, garlic, and bell pepper. This dish is completely vegetarian so you can serve it on the side of a meal or as a meal itself!

Ever since going to Animal Kingdom at Disney World and trying the sweet potato hash at Satu’-li Canteen (a fast casual restaurant in the park), I knew I HAD to make a copycat version. And I think we nailed it! If you’re ever at Satu’-li Canteen you must get the sweet potato hash. It comes in a bowl (you can pick the hash, rice, or salad) with your choice of meat and is amazing.

We are so excited we have this yummy recipe to make at home. It’s great for breakfast or as a side to any lunch or dinner.

How to Make Sweet Potato Hash

How to Make Sweet Potato Hash

DICE. Before you start making the hash, make sure to dice the 2 medium sweet potatoes and one white sweet potato in bite-sized chunks and keep the skin on. While you’re at it, dice up the onion as well.

SAUTE. Start by heating the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. After the olive oil has heated up, add the potatoes and onions. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Lower the heat just a bit, cover the skillet, and cook for 15-20 minutes.

Occasionally, stir the mixture and cook until the potatoes are almost tender. Turn the heat up to high and mix in the bell peppers and garlic. Cook everything on high for 2-5 minutes. The potatoes should be nicely browned when it’s ready to serve!

What to serve with potato hash?

There are a lot of things you can pair with this delicious side! You can eat sweet potato hash for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

If you’re wanting to eat this for breakfast, serve it on the side of these Scrambled Eggs or Buttermilk Pancakes. Or with Swedish Pancakes for brunch.

For dinner, make it alongside these tasty Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops or this classic Lemon Pepper Chicken.

How to store sweet potato hash

Keep any leftovers in an airtight container in your fridge for 3 – 4 days. It makes a great quick breakfast or lunch heated up the next day, as well as in a bowl with your favorite protein choice.

    I couldn’t get my potatoes to brown or crisp up at all in the last step. It still tasted amazing but we like that little bit of char. Any ideas?
