Sweet Potato & Brussels Hash

I feel like this blog is sort of becoming a somewhat vegetarian blog. I realize that I post a lot of vegetarian recipes, some in the name of tricking my husband (he’s still sort of angry, by the way), others because I don’t feel they require meat. Regardless, I also really enjoy a juicy burger or a perfectly cooked steak, so I’m going to get some meaty recipes on here for all of you carnivores soon. Rooaaaarrrrr….MEAT.

I never feel deprived by a vegetarian recipe when there is a poached or fried egg on top. This sweet potato and brussels hash came about because I bought a small bag of aleppo pepper at a spice shop, and then that bag stayed pinned to my kitchen bulletin board for six months, being ignored. I finally broke it out, and was so surprised by the flavor of the pepper. It’s not as spicy as red pepper flakes, but has a spicy-fruit quality. It’s bright and interesting, and perfect on top on an egg.
