This savory morning meal will leave you feeling nourished and focused for hours– thanks to the nutrient-rich veggies and high protein eggs. We encourage you to give it a try– even if you’re not usually a fan of brussels sprouts. This single skillet meal offers loads of simply delicious flavors you’ll love!
Benefits of Brussels Sprouts
Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite veggies because of their rich, earthy flavor. They also contain a high concentration of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Research shows the healthy compounds in brussels sprouts are beneficial for bone health and heart health. However, it is good to note that these are very fibrous veggies, so take caution if you have any digestive issues. If you can’t tolerate brussels sprouts, we suggest swapping in zucchini or broccoli in this hash.
Try it for Any Meal
While I usually make this veggie hash for breakfast, this dish can also be served for lunch or even dinner. It’s super versatile! If eating breakfast for dinner isn’t a typical habit of yours, you’re missing out! It’s a great dish for vegetarians too, as well as people that are gluten-free or lactose-free, or even anyone doing Meatless Mondays. Basically, we think everyone should give it a try!
Swaps and Substitutions
While we love our rendition of this recipe, it can be easily customized with whatever veggies or protein you have in the fridge. Try swapping in some russet potatoes, bell pepper, zucchini, spinach, or even carrots. You can also use beans or sausage instead (or with!) the eggs. Additionally, feel free to add your favorite toppings like hot sauce, salsa, cheese, or fresh herbs. No matter what veggies, proteins, or toppings you choose to add in, you can’t go wrong with a fresh breakfast. Be sure to let us know what customizations you made in the comment section!
Prepare Your Hash
For an easier morning meal, feel free to prep the veggies for this recipe the night before. Once you’re ready to start cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then add the diced sweet potatoes. Season them with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook until soft and slightly browned. Push the sweet potato to the outer parts of the pan and add the onion, brussels sprouts, and mushrooms to the center of the pan. Let the veggies cook for 3 or 4 minutes, trying to keep them as evenly spread as possible to make sure all of the veggies get cooked.
Push the hash to the sides and crack the eggs in the center. Steam the eggs by covering the pan for a minute or two for sunny side up. You can also prep the eggs separately in a different pan or flip them in the hash to fry. Whichever way you like, once your eggs are ready, you’re ready to enjoy this brussels sprouts hash! Feel free to season it with a little more black pepper and/or salt if you’re not watching your sodium.
