Notes: While the sweet potato home fries are baking, sauté the red peppers and onions. Mix together and serve with breakfast!
I think the sweet potato is an over looked item when it comes to brunch and breakfast. What recipes come to mind first when you thing of sweet potatoes? The Thanksgiving side dish of mashed sweet potatoes with the marshmallow topping? Or maybe sweet potato fries or chips?
But sweet potatoes belong on the breakfast table too! And now you have an easy recipe to incorporate them into your morning meals.
Why make sweet potato fries instead of using baking potatoes? They have an extra depth of warm flavor that you just won’t get in baking potatoes! There’s an extra layer of savory, a little more dense texture and that little hint of sweetness.
Once you have these breakfast sweet potatoes you won’t want to have baking potato home fries again!
The great thing about this recipe is you only need a few easy ingredients! You’ll need:
- 3-4 medium sized sweet potatoes
- Olive oil for the sweet potatoes and the red pepper onion mix
- Smoked paprika
- Garlic powder
- 1 white onion
- 1 red pepper
Pretty easy, right? Grab these during the week on a grocery run so you have them for the weekend when you’re ready to whip up a hearty brunch!
Planning a weekend brunch? I have a few other recipes you should check out to add to the menu!
Scones are one of my favorite baked breakfast treats! Copycat Panera Orange Scones are a soft scone bursting with citrus! These Raspberry White Chocolate Scones are a mix of breakfast and dessert, and these Lemon Blueberry Scones are bright and refreshing!
A little something to sip on? Brunch Shots are a fun shot that taste like French toast! Peach Mimosas are a fun spin on the traditional mimosa! Or this Iced Caramel Latte is the taste of the coffee shop from your kitchen.
Lastly, try this Mangu! Mangu is a Dominican dish of mashed plantains and is a delightful addition to breakfast and brunch.

Just look at this bright vibrant color. Now this really brightens up breakfast.
I mean, that’s a POP of color on your breakfast table and I’m all about that. Vibrantly orange sweet potatoes, sunny scrambled eggs, berry scones or cinnamon raisin toast…this is the breakfast spread I want to wake up to on the weekend.

- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 30 minutes
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Yield: 6 servings 1x
- Category: Breakfast
- Method: Baking
- Cuisine: American
3–4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (try not to go too small or they will burn)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced white onion
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1.Heat your oven to 450 degrees. In a bowl combine the diced sweet potatoes, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, paprika, garlic powder and salt. Spread into an even layer on a baking sheet and bake for 28-30 minutes. About half way through baking, using a large spoon or spatula give them a stir so they don’t burn on one side.
2. While the potatoes are baking, heat the other 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a sauté pan and add the onions and peppers. Sauté on medium-high heat for 10-15 minutes until they softened and get slightly browned. Don’t over stir, you want them to get nice and browned on all sides so let them sit for a bit each time before stirring again.
3. When the potatoes are done, add them into the peppers & onions pan and stir combine everything together. Serve with eggs.
