Japanese Sweet Potato Hash - Dash Of Mandi

Whenever I go out for breakfast and see breakfast hash on the menu, I almost always order it! Two of my favorite spots to get it in Austin are Picnik and Café No Se. It’s one of the most satisfying meals. Also, I love how every place makes it a little bit different.

My favorite potato is the Japanese sweet potato. Which is what inspired me to make a breakfast hash recipe using it! I get mine at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. If you’ve never had one, you are seriously missing out! I make fries in my air fryer with them almost weekly. So delicious.
