Sweet Potato Home Fries is a welcomed twist on traditional home fries. The roasted Sweet potatoes have a warm and sweet flavor and the sauteed peppers and onions add a robust taste to the finished recipe. An easy breakfast side dish the whole family will love!


34 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.
