Today I'm introducing a new feature: Put an Egg On It, where I'll explore recipes that are made that much better by adding an egg. Because let's face it, most things are better with a fried, poached, scrambled, or any other kind of egg. Eggs are often overlooked, but that punch of protein adds to many dishes across many cultures.
For the inaugural recipe, I bring you a Sweet Potato Hash, celebrating hearty flavors of the colder months to create a warm breakfast or brunch dish. Prepared with a few simple ingredients from my produce delivery service Green Bean Delivery, this recipe is full of crispy onions, sweet potato, kale and topped with a fried egg. Add a touch of creaminess with a bit of goat cheese, and you've put together the perfect winter dish.
