Whenever Fall is approaching, I feel the urge to switch from cold to warm breakfasts. When the mornings get chilly, I crave a warm meal to start my day and I toss aside my regular overnight oats and smoothies for hot oatmeal, eggs, and protein pancakes. One of my favorite breakfasts is a big egg and vegetable scramble with a side of this Spicy Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash. It’s a great way to get a ton of vegetables in right away and it’s nice and warming for those Fall and Winter mornings.
This isn’t just a great breakfast meal, though—it also makes a really awesome dinner. I could eat traditional breakfast foods all day every day, so it’s no surprise that I LOVE having breakfast for dinner. These pictures are actually from a breakfast for dinner night, so I promise it makes a great dinner! The egg scramble in this photo was made with eggs (duh), mushrooms, bell pepper, onion, and spinach and I also served some Morning Star sausage patties on the side.
I love swapping regular white potatoes for sweet potatoes whenever I can. Sweet potatoes contain a huge amount of Vitamin A (hello healthy eyes!), along with more Vitamin C and fiber than regular white potatoes. They also contain fewer carbs and calories-so you can eat more, right?
Try this delicious Spicy Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash with your next breakfast or breakfast for dinner and I promise you will be satisfied. If you try it, let me know in the comments—or take a picture and tag @busygirlhealthyworld on Instagram so that I can see it!
