Finding a great hangover breakfast or brunch is always difficult when in need. Now I’m not recommending you overdo it with the drinking, but if you do, beef and sweet potato hash is an expert recovery meal. It’s lean, nourishing and above all, gosh darn tasty.
I love this dish. As I said, it makes for a perfect breakfast or brunch after a night of over-indulgence. It is also a great “anytime” meal for students, or for someone living on a budget who is new to preparing meals for themself. The ingredients are cheap, they’ll be plenty of leftovers and the nutrition value is off the charts.
Sweet potato is packed with vitamin A and also high in vitamin c, beef is a great source of iron, and using lean minced beef keeps fat intake low. Poblano peppers are high in dietary fiber, and let’s not forget that eggs are a great source of protein.
Be careful though, don’t over eat as you may find yourself yearning for sleepy time.
You can serve the eggs anyway you prefer, scrambled poached, or fried. Fried eggs on top of all that minced beef and sweet potato really does it for me though. I washed my serving down with a blood orange San Pellegrino. A truly scrumptious meal.
I have some beef and sweet potato hash left over, I plan on sharing it with my niece tomorrow. I’ll just add two freshly fried eggs, and we’ll enjoy our well-earned breakfast after our regular morning photo shoot.
I’m my niece’s very amateur photographer for her fashion and lifestyle blog, FanciFantastic.
We have a lot of fun trying to capture some really great pictures. We’re not always successful mind you. We’ve had to abandon a couple of morning shoots due to my lack of experience with lighting and attention to styling. But we soldier on, FanciFantastic is getting more attention everyday, primarily due to my niece’s stellar sense of style and great eye.
Beef and sweet potato hash is a wonderfully fulfilling meal. Those of you that are mothers and looking to arm your sons and daughters with one or two recipes to keep their nutrition on track and hunger at bay, while they study or work away from home, should give this one a try.
