I have an awesome spring-themed brunch recipe to share with you all today: Sweet Potato Hash with Poached Eggs.
This recipe is this month’s McCormick partnership creation; my challenge was to share a twist on Easter dinner or brunch. The star of this recipe, besides the awesome poached eggs (yep, I’m obsessed), is the delicious seasoning.
The flavor is amped up a notch thanks to the addition of bright and springy mustard powder, dried tarragon, and dried thyme. They go nicely with the potatoes as well as with the ham! (If you’re a vegetarian, firm tofu would work well here instead of the ham, or simply leave it out altogether.)
The sweet potatoes take awhile to roast, so if you’d like to save time on the day of the brunch, feel free to roast the sweet potatoes and make the hash ahead of time. It will keep well in the fridge overnight and you can quickly throw it into a pan to reheat and crisp it up just before serving.
The poached eggs can also be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge overnight.
To reheat the eggs, just dip them into hot (but not boiling or simmering) water for about 30 seconds just before serving.
Don’t have time or don’t want to figure out the whole poached egg thing? Fried eggs would also be a win here – don’t stress yourself out! Also, as I mention in the recipe ingredients, depending on how hungry your audience is, feel free to give everyone two eggs instead of just one. More eggs is never a bad idea, as far as I’m concerned…
Alright, enough jabbering. Here’s the full recipe. Let me know how you like it!
Thank you to McCormick for sponsoring this post! For more delicious Easter-themed recipes, check out their website. I’m loving the look of their Cherry Bourbon Glazed Ham, Mediterranean Deviled Eggs and Dill Deviled Eggs. Try using plain Greek yogurt in place of the mayo in the egg recipes; it would be just as good, especially with the added flavor from the spices!
