Unlike a lot of people I know, I’m a morning person. Don’t go getting me up before 7am, but anytime after and I’ll usually feel brighter than the sunshine itself! This also means, of course, I am NO nightowl. Go ahead and shake your moneymaker at the club ‘til dawn… I’ll be tucked up in bed asleep before Jeopardy. Oh, hey little youngster, can I offer you a hand knitted blanket or a Werther’s caramel?

Being a morning person means I need my fuel, and nothing does the trick like an egg, fruit and a little starch. Okay, who are we kidding… a lotta starch some mornings. Some mornings. If I had it my way, every morning. But a girl’s still gotta rock a bikini while it’s blazing hot down South! Can I get an amen?

Once swimsuit season’s a thing of the past and sweaters are here to stay for a few months, I’ll indulge a little more (and easily be able to hide the evidence). That means more of this crisp, flavorful deliciousness in a pan for long breakfasts and lazy brunches. Besides, who says you can’t have onions and garlic before lunchtime? Just don’t go kissin’ around!

    I am a morning person too. Even without kids I would like to be up by seven. This hash looks great. I have had a note to myself to try sweet potato hash one of these days so thanks for the sweet reminder! :)

    Georgia! I’m a total morning person too! I usually wake up at 7 on the weekends. 5am during the week. I know, I am crazy! It’s so nice ot accomplish a lot before the rest of the world wakes up. I love it! This potato hash would instantly get me out of bed earlier than usual too!!

    I am not a morning person (I wish I was!) but this recipe would definitely make getting up early worth it. Either that or I’ll just make it for lunch instead. :)

    Is that some sort of cheese, like Parmesan I see sprinkled over the finished product? Just want to make an exact replica. Thanks, can’t wait to eat this!

    Oops, thought I already added that in there. Yes, it’s Parmesan and the recipe has been updated. Thanks!

    I make this all the time but use season salt and garlic salt and I don’t use bell peppers or fresh Parmesan cheese or parsley

    This looked so amazing, and I’m a huge fan of savory breakfasts so I made it Sunday night for a week full of yummy breakfasts.

    I have a question – I had a terrible time keeping the potatoes from burning. I deglazed the pan with a bit of water, but I didn’t want my potatoes to turn mushy. Do I have my pan up too high?

    Thanks for any advice!!

      I’m really not sure what might have gone wrong, but as you said, possibly your heat was too high.
