Sunday morning breakfast is a treat. I have always loved the smell of a beautiful hot cup of coffee coupled with any type of brekafast.  Baked goods of any kind are great but a hot breakfast with eggs and bacon are spectacular.   I was looking for something fun to make and thought about sweet potato hash.  The recipe below is my version of what was found via a Google search.

What you need for breakfast for two:

  •  Olive oil to drizzle in the pan
  •  2 Tbsp. butter
  •  1 medium onion, diced
  •  2 cloves of garlic, chopped fine
  •  2 cups diced grilled turkey(I used cutlets, nice and thin)
  •  dried thyme to taste
  •  1 tsp. paprika
  •  1 large sweet potato peeled and diced (you can use pre-peeled/cubed as found in some supermarkets)
  •  1 ear of fresh corn or a cup of frozen corn
  •  Salt and black pepper, to taste
  •  4 large eggs
  •  Sliced green onion or chopped parsley, optional

What to do:

To make it easy, the night before I grilled the turkey cutlets.  No oil, just S&P on a hot grill.  Do not cook them too much or they will be dried out.  Slice into little pieces and store in the fridge.

Boil the sweet potatoes.  Not too long or they will be mashed potatoes.  You want the cubes firm and not mushy.  Drain the hot water, rinse in cold water and store in the fridge over night.

Now in the morning:

  • Melt butter in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and heat.
  • Add onion and garlic cooking until soft.
  • Stir in sweet potatoes and corn; cook until vegetables are heated through, about 5 minutes, stirring once.
  • Stir in turkey, rosemary and paprika and stir, stir, stir. Turn up the heat and smell!  It is sizzling and getting crusty. Yum.
  • In a separate pan fry your eggs in the manner you love: sunny side, over easy, over medium, your call.
  • Spoon the hash into a plate and spread it out a bit. Place the fried eggs on top and garnish with green onions, if desired.

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
