Breakfast is calling. Can you hear it?
It’s beckoning us to lay aside the toast, the bowl of cereal, or the notion of skipping breakfast (how do those people survive the day?) and to have a breakfast that promises to take away the winter ho-hums. Say hello to your new sheet pan breakfast.
Sweet potatoes, crimini and shiitake mushrooms, sweet onions, and bacon all tossed in a garlicky herb lemon oil and roasted. Then we round out the color scheme and our nutritional pizzazz by serving the roasted veggies over greens with a baked egg and a generous dollop of easy homemade romesco sauce. Which btw, expect the romesco to find its way into your fridge as a permanent must-have condiment to be spread, schmeered, and eaten with almost everything. Ya with me?
Yes, yes you are.
This sheet pan hash is approachable and easy, which pairs well with my lifelong need for simple partnered with tasty. It’s perfect for family breakfast gatherings when you need to feed a crowd. It’s a simple meal prep option that can be made in advance for a tasty work-time lunch option that your co-workers will definitely be jealous of (so maybe bring the whole sheet pan and share). And it’s perfect for when you’re craving a solid breakfast but just wanna chill in yer pj’s (#thisisme).
This sweet potato hash does require some chopping on the front end but nothing too overly exhaustive. The chopping can be done in advance if need be and the prepped ingredients can be stored in the fridge until its time to nosh.
Let’s break down this sheet pan sweet potato hash
- Diced sweet potato
- Quartered crimini mushrooms
- Shiitake mushrooms –> No need to chop them unless they’re too large for your liking. Mine were already small and dainty.
- Chopped sweet onion
- Bacon –> I went into Edward Scissorhands mode with my kitchen shears and cut the bacon into small-ish pieces.
- Eggs –> They’ll be cracked over top of the hash after the veggies have roasted for just a leetle bit.
- Romesco sauce –> Buy it or make it. I prefer homemade because it’s easy and yum. I’ll share the recipe below. #sharingiscaring
- Baby spinach –> Put a couple handfuls of greens on your plate, serve hash and baked egg over top followed by a spoonful of the romesco sauce and bon appétit babe.
But first…how to efficiently dice a sweet potato
Step 1: With a SHARP knife (<– this is essential, otherwise you might end up with finger hash) slice off each end of the sweet potato. Then slice the sweet potato lengthwise.
Step 2: Place each half of the sweet potato face down, and slice lengthwise into strips about 1/2 inch thick.
Step 3: Taking several slices at a time, lay them on their side once more, and again cut into slices about a 1/2 inch thick. At this point, they will look like french fries. (heyya! it’s a 2-for-1 tutorial!)
Step 4: Holding several sweet potato fries at a time, begin dicing.
And there you have it! A pile of perfectly diced sweet potatoes.
Remember…use a sharp knife.
Next up, mix together a quick herby & lemony sauce, toss it with the veggies on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan, do a dance, and spread everything out in an even layer. Then into the oven goes.
After the veggies have had their moment to get all roasty and cozy in the oven, take the pan out and crack some eggs over top wherever you please. Back into the oven it goes just long enough for us to enjoy a second cuppa morning elixir. #chaitea4lyfe
Breakfast is served darlin.
Who’s doing a happy dance in their pj’s now?! —> ME.

- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 lb sweet potatoes, diced

Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a small bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, thyme, rosemary, and crushed red pepper flakes.
- Place sweet potatoes, onion, crimini and shittake mushrooms, and bacon on the sheet pan in a single layer. Drizzle herby olive oil mixture over top and gently toss to combine.
- Place into oven and roast for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and create 5 wells. Carefully crack an egg into each well keeping the yolk intact. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Return to the oven and bake for about 5 minutes or until the egg whites are just set but the yolks are still runny. For firm yolks, bake for about 10 minutes.
- To serve, plate the sweet potato hash and baked eggs over top a bed of baby spinach with a dollop of romesco sauce. Garnish with avocado slices and chives, if desired.
- Eat and be merry!
How to Roast Your Own Red Bell Peppers!
Preheat broiler. Place 2 red bell peppers on a sheet pan and broil for about 8-10 minutes, turning as needed, until they are blistered all over. Transfer peppers to a large bowl, cover, and allow to steam for about 10 minutes. Once peppers are cool enough to handle, peel, de-stem, and remove the seeds. Now your peppers are ready to be added to a high speed blender with the rest of the romesco sauce ingredients!
Almond Substitutions (for the romesco sauce)
Allergic to almonds or just don’t have them hand? Some other nuts and/or seeds that you can substitute them for are cashews, toasted walnuts, toasted hazelnuts (deskinned), toasted pine nuts (which are actually a seed!), and toasted sesame seeds.
