Chipotle-Cheddar Sweet Potato and Ham Hash

(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Breakfast


  • 1 1/4 lbs. sweet potatoes, scrubbed and peeled, and shredded
  • 5 scallions, sliced, divided
  • 1 cup diced boneless ham steak
  • 1 tbsp. chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp canola oil, divided
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar
  • 4 large eggs


  1. Mix sweet potatoes, 4 scallions, ham, chipotle, and salt in a large bowl until well combined.

  2. Heat 2 tsp oil in a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add the hash, spreading in an even layer. Cook, turning occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are soft and starting to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Drizzle the remaining 2 tsp oil around the edge and tilt the pan to help the oil flow under the hash. Reduce heat to medium-low and sprinkle the hash with cheese. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Crack eggs into the pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 5 to 7 minutes for soft-set yolks. Serve the hash topped with the eggs and sprinkled with the remaining scallion.
