Sweet potato hash with fried eggs

Sweet potato hash with fried eggs
  • Serves: 2
  • Prep: 10mins
  • Cook: 20mins


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 50g cooking chorizo, sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 500g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1.5cm cubes
  • 100g sweetcorn/1 corn on the cob, kernels removed
  • 2 medium British Lion eggs
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped


  1. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chorizo and cook for five minutes until crisp.
  2. Remove the chorizo onto a plate with a slotted spoon. Add the onion to the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes until soft, adding the garlic to the pan for the final minute. Then remove the onion from the pan and add to the chorizo.
  3. Microwave the sweet potato on high heat for four minutes until just starting to soften. Add the sweet potato to the pan and cook for 10-15 minutes, until golden and crisp, adding the chorizo, onion and sweetcorn to the pan for the final three minutes to warm through.
  4. Heat the remaining olive oil in a separate pan and fry the eggs until the white is just set and the yolk is still runny. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  5. Divide the hash between two plates and top with the fried eggs. Garnish with spring onion and chilli.
