What is Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash? Our Harvest Hash is a healthy spin on traditional hash and an easy recipe for your next brunch or even for breakfast for dinner. Traditionally breakfast hash comes from the word “to chop” and often consists of meat,  potatoes and onions. Originally used as a way to utilize leftovers.  We adapted this recipe for vegetarians by using turkey sausage and adding in extra vegetables like Brussels Sprouts and fruit like Granny Smith apples and using sweet potatoes. This dish is so colorful, it looks like a fall festive extravaganza.
