Sweet Potato Sausage Hash

Can we just talk for a moment about the fact that I’m really good at pretending?

I’ve pretty much been doing it my whole life. Pretending I am confident and not shy, while I am always anxious and nervous around people and in public places. Pretending that I know what I want to do with my life, while I am constantly questioning it. Pretending I am smart, while I am frantically studying to learn the material. Pretending I am a blogger, while I sit at my computer for hours in frustration trying to figure the simplest thing out.

Fake it ’til you make it, right?

Let’s be real. I think we are all doing this. And I think the realization that most people are “fakin’ it” is important. I mean, do you think that Justin Bieber really knows what he’s doing? And look at him! And that Rebecca Black girl. Ok… maybe those aren’t the best examples. But you get the point.

This is totally the kind of breakfast that could be a “fakin’ it” breakfast. It is so simple to put together, but would fool anyone that you totally know what’s up in the category of delicious. Really delicious.

I actually discovered these flavor combinations at one of my favorite local breakfast places, Mirth. It is one of those meals that you can’t get out of your head. I actually kind of obsess over how good it is. One day when I am on Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” Breakfast Edition, I will talk about Mirth and their version of this recipe. We all have dreams…

      Thanks Russell! The cinnamon is very subtle. When I first had a dish similar to this at my favorite breakfast place, Mirth, I sat there trying to decipher all of the flavors for the longest time. I finally figured out that a pinch of cinnamon was what was putting it over the top!

      Aww thanks Danny! It was sad to lose all of the followers I built up. But I just have to keep in mind the reasons I moved. Hopefully bigger and better things!

    This was great. I made it this morning – I used spinach and mushrooms in place of the corn. Really yummy. You’re right about the eggs — even watching them, the yolks can start to cook more quickly than you like when they’re under the broiler!

      WOW! You already tried it! I’m glad you liked it! This is one of my favorite breakfasts. I actually usually just stare into the oven when anything is under the broiler. I don’t trust myself to walk away!

        I think it’s going to become a favourite for us. We don’t eat gluten or dairy, so that nukes a lot of “traditional” breakfast options. This recipe was delicious, filling, and pretty easy to make. And my husband LOVED it. Thank you so much for posting it!

    I was wondering where you went! So happy to find out that you are still blogging :)

    This recipe looks incredibly – I LOVE cinnamon and the addition of it with rosemary must me amazing – this will definitely be made this weekend!
