This is my version of a very versatile dish. You can serve it with eggs for breakfast or brunch or use it as a side.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A homemade hash that's perfect for a lazy weekend brunch. The potatoes are parboiled before frying which makes the center soft and the outside gets nice brown bits. Combining sweet potatoes and white potatoes provides a nice contrast in flavor. Sweet onions, bell peppers, and green onions just add to the wonderful flavor of this sweet potato hash. We served ours with over-easy eggs for a yummy breakfast. This hash would be delish with some grilled pork chops too.
