It is time for a blog reboot. I have graduated with my Master’s Degree in Library Science (before you ask, yes, that’s a real thing), and I now have time, glorious time! I also have a new camera and quite a lot of new recipes to share with you.
So, I am breaking my blogging fast. In honor of that, my first post since 2009 (eegad!) shall be about breakfast. Specifically, my breakfast this morning, when I was tempted to go out to breakfast and spend quite a lot of money for someone else to cook for me, but instead I decided that it is probably better to cook with what I have here, in my pantry and in my fridge. Some of my favorite meals start this way.
I haven’t been to the grocery store in a while, but after scrounging around the kitchen I found some eggs, two sweet potatoes, and a vidalia onion. That, and a little oil, butter, salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning was all I needed to make a healthy, tasty, cheap breakfast for Boyfriend and me.
Sweet Potato Hash Recipe (serves 2):
What you need:
- two medium sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
- one onion (I used vidalia, but any kind will do), sliced
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- salt, pepper, and cajun season (such as Louisiana Cajun Seasoning), to taste
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until the onions are beginning to soften.
- Add the sweet potato cubes to the onions. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning. Stir to coat the sweet potatoes with oil.
- Sautee the hash until the sweet potatoes are cooked through and can be easily pierced with a fork – this took me around 15-20 minutes.
- Taste, adjust seasoning, and enjoy!
