WOT else do we love about this dish? It’s colorful and looks impressive on any plate! The sweet potatoes can also be pre-cooked so you can really make your life easier and cook these the day before and store them in the fridge till the next morning!

Another great tip? Cook your eggs in the same pan as the hash so you have less cleanup after.

Camila likes to call this dish a ‘modern cowboy breakfast’ and we hope you love it as much as she (and we) do!
