Red Pepper & Eggs on Sweet Potato Hashbrown Nests

A breakfast that is tasty as it is eye-catching. Sweet potatoes add a great flavor to the hashbrowns.
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 30 mins
Servings 4


  • 2 large potatoes peeled
  • 1/2 sweet potato peeled
  • 1/4 small onion finely diced (optional)
  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • 5 eggs divided
  • 1 Tbsp rice flour
  • 4 peppers
  • Salt pepper & spices of your choice


To make the hashbrown nests:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Shred all peeled potatoes using a large grater or a julienne grater (that's what I used in the picture). Toss together into a bowl, along with onion if using.
  • Using a oven safe skillet, heat 2 Tbsp oil, then fry potato mixture until starts to soften, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together 1 egg, flour, and seasonings of your choice. Pour into skillet, mixing fast until evenly incorporated. Then shape into 4 wells/patties using the spatula or spoon. Place in hot oven and continue baking until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes (depends on thickness of grated potatoes).

To make eggs:

  • Slice peppers into 1/2"-3/4" thick slices. If they are narrow peppers, you may need to make the slices 1" wide, so the egg doesn't spill when added. You want 2-3 nicely shaped pepper slices per person.
  • Heat a skillet with 1 Tbsp oil, then add pepper slices. Let them fry on med-high for about a minute, then crack an egg into each one. Reduce heat to medium and cook until done to your liking (for harder eggs, after a few minutes of cooking, add a few tablespoons of water to pan, and cover with a lid until done).

To assemble:

  • Remove hashbrown nests from oven and place a egg/pepper slice over each one.
