Spinach and Ham Sweet Potato Hash

With Easter being the big food holiday in March, you may find yourself with a plethora of leftover ham—if you’re like me, you will for sure. My friends, family, and I make it a point to enjoy epic, elaborate meals that somehow always provide more food than we need. Good thing we all love leftovers too!

Spinach and Ham sweet potato hash

You look in the fridge and see a large container of leftover bone-in ham plus extra sweet potatoes you tried to fit into the pan, but somehow that five pound bag doesn’t always fit. Naturally you should make spinach and ham sweet potato hash. All you need is a few more ingredients, including Davidson’s Safest Choice® Pasteurized Eggs, for a hearty Easter themed brunch recipe. It’s ideal for feeding remaining family members staying past the weekend, or just as leftovers (again).

Spinach and Ham sweet potato hash

Ham is one of those ingredients I don’t cook with often, but when the holidays are around, I pretty much live off of it for a week. This sweet potato hash is a perfect addition to that week of ham recipes. Unlike our usual brunch endeavors, this one comes together in a flash, with little hands-on time and about a half hour total. Just peel and dice sweet potatoes and brown in a skillet until caramelized and tender. Stir in ham and spinach, then top with Davidson’s Safest Choice® Pasteurized Eggs. Bake until egg whites set, but leave the yolks runny. Get the full recipe for spinach and ham sweet potato hash.
