This recipe happened because I was hungry and broke. I had made pan-roasted chicken breast with oven-roasted sweet potatoes and asparagus for dinner the night before, and had about 1 potato and 5 or 6 stalks of asparagus left over. The potato was already cut into chunks but I cut it into even smaller chunks for the hash. I also had some leftover corn from another night, and some fresh mushrooms. This turned out SO YUMMY I will definitely make it again, maybe even tweaking it some more. I should have taken a picture, it was so pretty...

    Add the sweet potato chunks and continue to cook until everything starts to get brown & crusty (brown food tastes good!). Add the asparagus and corn, and all the spices/seasonings. Toss to coat everything and cook a few more minutes to heat everything through.

    Add 1 T. butter or margarine if desired, and stir to combine (this is strictly for the flavor). Turn heat down to Low just to keep warm while you cook your egg.
