Cinnamon Sugar Sweet Potato Hash
There’s a bit of nostalgia with this “Sweet” Sweet Potato Hash, using that little shaker of cinnamon sugar reminds me of yummy toast with cinnamon sugar that we all had as a kid. I also love making these when we have breakfast-for-dinner, they go great with French Toast or pancakes.

The recipe calls for a bit of butter at the end, which is optional. But I think butter adds yummy additional somethin-somethin. I mean, butter …cinnamon …sugar? C’mon!

And if you’re utterly appalled that I occasionally add sugar to my kids food, (OH THE HORROR!) I suppose you could try to make this sweet potato sweet hash with honey and cinnamon. It might work, let me know if you try it. And I guess we could still be friends.

Do you like my white skillets? I’ve had them for a few years, and they have been great! Their whiteness threw me off at first, but I love them. I feel like I can judge done-ness a lot easier with them. As much as I’d love a super spendy set of pots and pans, my kids (ahem, …husband) are way too rough on them. So for this stage of life, middle of the road works for us! Find them on Amazon here.
