Sweet Potato and Carnita Hash takes the egg, bacon, and potato breakfast formula and flips it on its head! Sweet potatoes add an almost caramel salty-sweetness to the dish, the carnitas serve up a tender texture and a more intense pork flavor, and the eggs are fried because fried eggs are delicious (who can argue with that?). This mix of tastes will get you excited for a magnificent morning like no other breakfast can! That's right, Sweet Potato and Carnita Hash literally sweetens up your day!
