turkey-sweet-potato hash with fried eggs

Pin It
the fork pierces buttery-brown-edged egg white and warm, gooey egg yolk drizzles onto crispy fried sweet potatoes scrambled with turkey sausage.  who needs a diner this saturday morning?  we've got it going on in this kitchen.

eggs are very important in this house; they must be properly cooked.  for me, that usually means butter-crisped edges on the whites, and a soft, slightly runny but almost-creamy yolk.  i had two sweet potatoes left from the week's menu; not enough to bake even "fries" for this household-of-seven.  so i decided to make my own version of the "skillet" we'd order at a diner if we had the option.


peel and chop two sweet potatoes and one onion.  
drizzle coconut oil and a pat of butter into a hot skillet.
add one pound of turkey sausage.
(ground turkey will work here, also; just add sage and garlic with it.)
stir and cook until sausage and potatoes are browned and onions are translucent.

set individually plated servings in oven to stay warm;
top each with an egg-over-medium.
sprinkle with chopped chives or green onion.
