Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

As a chef with type 1 diabetes, I am always looking for dishes that are an “all-in-one” flavor kind of meal for breakfast. This breakfast hash dish builds its foundation on simple Latin flavors and a base of sweet potatoes which are my favorite complex carb. This is also a great meal prep dish that can be reheated and enjoyed days after making. Based on how you’re feeling that day add a dash of any of your favorite sauces or condiments to add a little variety to this fantastic breakfast meal.
