Sweet Potato and Bison Breakfast Hash
Serves: 4 people
5 from 4 votes


  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 large sweet potato, diced small about 3 cups
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely diced yellow onion about 1/4 medium onion
  • 1 lb ground meat I use bison, but you can use beef, turkey, chicken or pork
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

For Serving:

  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 fried eggs or eggs any style you prefer
  • salsa


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When hot, add the diced sweet potato, 1/2 tsp of the salt, and 1/4 tsp of the pepper. Cook, tossing every 2-3 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and lightly browned on the edges, 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer cooked potatoes to a plate and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium in the skillet and add the onion, ground meat, the remaining salt and pepper, cumin, and garlic powder. Cook, breaking up the meat with the back of a spoon, until the meat is cooked through (no longer pink), about 5 minutes. Drain off excess fat, if necessary.
  • Add the sweet potatoes back into the skillet and gently toss until well combined and heated back through, 3 more minutes.
  • For serving, spoon the meat and sweet potato hash across the bottom of a bowl. Top with sliced avocado, a fried egg, and serve with a side of salsa.

    I am so impressed with this dish and pleasantly surprised that it tasted very well. I had ground pork from Whole Foods that i needed to get rid of and I tried it in this dish. I was full a long time I can only imagine what it taste like when I make it with bison.

    Thank you for the recipe.; its a keeper.
