A Paleo Staple – Sweet Potato Hash

Sweet potato hash with runny eggs

sweet potato hash with runny eggs – my favorite!

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you! Sweet Potato Hash is one of my very favorite easy-peezy Paleo side dishes. I’ll pair it with eggs for breakfast, or sometimes I’ll add different spices to change it up as a veggie side dish for dinner. Sometimes I’ll blend it with sausage for a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner – doesn’t matter, it’s delicious any time.

The easiest way to make this hash is to shred the sweet potatoes in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a cheese grater, but be forewarned – you will be grating for a while. I promise, invest in a food processor – it will allow you to make Cauliflower Rice, another of my favorite Paleo staples.


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add coconut oil. 
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into spears that will fit in your food processor chute. Or if using a cheese grater, start grating those puppies. 
  3. Add shredded sweet potatoes to the skillet, stirring frequently. Cook for 10 minutes. (If you like slightly crispy hash pieces, cook longer.)
  4. Add chicken broth and salt, then cover the skillet and let simmer on low-medium heat for 10 minutes. This will soften the sweet potato to a hash-like consistency.
  5. Uncover skillet and stir thoroughly. Enjoy!

To change up the flavor – I love adding 1 Tbsp of Cajun seasoning for a little kick. Or try garlic powder, onion powder, tarragon, thyme, sage, etc. Whatever!
