1/2 pound (2 cups) sweet potatoes, peeled, shredded

1/2 pound (2 cups) russet potatoes, peeled, shredded

1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper, if desired

6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1 small (1/2 cup) red bell pepper, finely chopped

1/3 cup finely chopped onion

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh garlic

1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon salt

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Pat shredded potatoes dry with paper towel. Combine shredded potatoes and crushed red peppers, if desired, in bowl; mix well.

  2. STEP 2

    Melt 4 tablespoons butter in 12-inch skillet over medium heat until sizzling. Add bell pepper, onions and garlic; sauté, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes or until onions are softened.

  3. STEP 3

    Add shredded potatoes; press down on potatoes with spatula to flatten. Cook, 4-5 minutes or until golden brown on bottom. Turn; cook 3-4 minutes or until crisp and tender. (Reduce heat if potatoes begin to brown too quickly.) Remove potato mixture from skillet to serving platter. Cover; keep warm.

  4. STEP 4

    Wipe skillet clean with paper towel. Melt remaining 2 tablespoon butter over medium heat until sizzling. Break eggs into pan. Cook 3-4 minutes or until whites are set. Turn eggs over carefully; continue cooking 2-3 minutes or until yolk reaches 160°F or desired doneness.

  5. STEP 5

    Serve fried eggs on top of hash.

Tip #1

FDA guidelines for safe handling instructions recommend cooking eggs until white and yolk are firm.

Tip #2

- Speed up potato shredding process by using the shredder attachment on your food processor.

Tip #3

- Sweet potatoes are available orange or pale yellow. Purchase orange colored sweet potatoes to make this recipe more colorful.
