Kale and Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash


2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into a fine ¼” dice
2 shallots, finely sliced
1 red bell pepper, cut into a fine ¼” dice
2 – 3 cups frozen kale or fresh kale
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
Pinch red pepper flakes
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
4 eggs
Extra virgin olive oil


Heat 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add in the sweet potatoes, shallot, red pepper, cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes, and season very generously with salt and pepper. Cook mixture, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are cooked through and tender, about 15-18 minutes. If using frozen kale, heat it according to package directions, then wrap kale in a couple paper towels and wring out any excess moisture. If using fresh kale, remove ribs and stems and roughly chop leaves. Add kale into the skillet approximately during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Taste the hash and season with additional salt or pepper if needed.
As the hash is finishing up cooking, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Once hot, crack open eggs and add them, one at a time, into the skillet. Season with salt and pepper and cover with a lid. This will help the tops of the whites to set before overcooking the bottom of the eggs. The eggs are done cooking once the whites are just set (the yolk will still be runny).
Divide the hash among four plates, topping each with one of sunny-side up eggs.
