Sweet Potato Chorizo Hash

Hash, man.

I’m devouring this as we speak. I’m speechless. Never, in a million years, could you convince me ANYTHING tastes better at home. I’m a “go out” kind of girl. But this. My hash at home > hip brunch places. And brunch for dinner? Let’s pretend it’s Saturday morning. Always. Why the hell not.

Also, Mike isn’t a fan of eggs. I KNOW, RIGHT!? And he INHALED two servings of this bad boy. Dreeeeeamy.

Hash, mannnnn.

You will need:
3 small sweet potatoes (or 2 large)
1/2 pound chorizo
3-4 eggs
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 pinch salt
Pico, hot sauce and avocado for toppings

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Roughly chop sweet potatoes until they’re whatever size you prefer. Put them in a big bowl, or a large ziploc bag. Add one tablespoon of olive oil to and a pinch of salt and shake up, coating all of the sweet potato pieces in olive oil.

Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, spread as evenly as possible. Bake for 30 minutes.

When the potatoes have about 5 minutes left, take your oven proof skillet (cast iron) and put it over medium-high (6-7 on dial) heat with the other tablespoon of olive oil. Add your teaspoon of minced garlic. Add chopped onion and chorizo. Cook until chorizo is all nice and browned. About 5-7 minutes. Stir in potatoes. LEAVE OVEN ON. Once all mixed, scoot some of the mix around with a large wooden spoon to make little holes for your eggs. Crack your eggs directly into the holes in the pan. Pull off of the heat and place skillet in the oven. Bake until eggs are set, or about 5-7 minutes.

Take it out. Freak out. Be proud. You are a cooking God. Aw yeah.

Top with pico, avocado and hot sauce. Nom. Now. For real. Stop. Wasting. Time. Oh, and $15 a weekend at that cool hipster brunch spot.

*Side note: these can be made vegetarian with soyrizo or whatever it’s called. This is also insanely healthy. I’m not an expert but I feel like this meets the requirements of primal, paleo and several other diets. So, eat without guilt, yall.

Wild Eggs and a Weigh In

HAPPY FRIDAY!! woop woop!

I truly was nervous about today’s weigh in. It’s mother nature time of the month for me. And that usually does disastrous things to your body’s physical weight. And mind. And diet.

But wow. I am so proud of myself. I’m tooting my own horn.

I LOST 3 POUNDS THIS WEEK!!

So, onward, I’d just love to be able to, at the very least, lose every time. Even if it is just a pound, I’ll take it!

I treated myself with a healthy version of my Wild Eggs favorite. Kalamity Katie’s Border Benedict.

It usually comes with queso. I said no to queso. It was hard as hell to do that. I also got just egg whites. It also usually comes with potatoes. Which I switched out for fruit. Like I said, I’m in the zone!

we’ll touch base this weekend!

Have a good one!
