Everyone needs a lazy dinner or breakfast recipe in their heads for when they just can’t be bothered. This is mine, the humble hash. To be honest I’m not so sure what makes a hash, a hash technically speaking. I think potato and onion in some shape or form is essential though, and this certainly has both.
This really is a super simple recipe, and is so healthy too. I make this fairly often for James and I as this is something he actually likes. For him, I often add bacon or ham and an extra egg (or two). I’ve also made this with kale and other leafy greens, but the green outer leaves of the savoy cabbage has to be my favourite.
Basically a hash is the result of throwing a bunch of ingredients into a pan and letting them get crispy. For me, that always has to be accompanied by a fried egg on top. In this recipe, I also add a sneaky ingredient that really makes the flavours pop.
This is comfort food at it’s best, while still being really healthy and surprisingly light. It can also be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner – such a versatile meal!
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 small onion
- 1 baked sweet potato
- 2-3 cabbage leaves (preferably savoy cabbage)
- Dash of tamari or soy sauce
- 1 egg
- 1. Chop the onion into thick wedges.
- 2. Warm the coconut oil in a medium size frying pan over a medium high heat, then add the onions and fry until golden and softened.
- 3. Roughly shred the cabbage and add to the pan, continuing to cook until wilted and crispy.
- 4. Chop the sweet potato (skin and all if you're lazy like me!) into pieces and add to the pan.
- 5. Once everything in the pan is crispy, add a dash of tamari or soy sauce and then transfer to a plate.
- 6. Replace the pan on the heat and add more coconut oil if needed. Crack the egg into the pan, cook until the underside is solid then flip and cook for just another minute. Flip out on top of the hash and split the yolk with a knife. Eat immediately!
Are you a fan of the hash? What do you put into yours? Breakfast, dinner or both?
That yolk looks insanely good. May have to be one of my recipes going forward ;)
I am all for quick and healthy dinners these days when life is busy as it always is!
The sweet potato egg combo was always a favourite of mine :)
Aww, hope you give it a try, it is yummy :-)
When a plate looks as colourful as this, 9 times out of 10 I know I’m going to seriously enjoy it. I really ought to get into having more savoury breakfasts and I can imagine something like this would do the trick. Chopping onions first thing in the morning may take a little getting used to…!

Haha, yes they might be a bit stinky! The egg / sweet potato combo is always a winner though :-)
Mmm love this! I need more hashes in my life. Sweet potato is such a good choice as well as I find normal potatoes a bit bland.
Yep, I’d never go back to boring plain potatoes!
I don’t think I have ever had something like that. This reminds me that it is time for jacket sweet potatoes now the weather is getting colder!
I’ve got a load of sweet potatoes all baked up for the week, so delicious!
I have cabbage for breakfast all the friggin time! I love hash’s for breakfast – I always have onion, cabbage and some sort of green thing and then add other a bunch of stuff – YUM!
Haha, I bet not a lot of people say that lol ;-) Yep I could be a cabbage for breakfast convert, although I mostly end up eating this for lunch. or brunch. or dinner, you know me!
Pinned for later. I love the speed and ease of a hash. Nothing fiddly about it!
