Sweet Potato & Apple Hash with the Perfect Scrambled Eggs

This may be your new favorite recipe for scrambled eggs and the hash is pretty darn good too!

Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? But the usual eggs and toast can get a little boring sometimes. Glen had found a recipe for amazing scrambled eggs online months ago and this is his rendition of those eggs. We’ll call them The Perfect Scrambled Eggs since there is no name for this version of the recipe. This was my first go around with mixing apples into the hash but hey what could go wrong, sweet potatoes and apples do sound great together.

To pull the whole breakfast for dinner together, we also cooked some bacon and English muffins with our new quince jam on top. For those readers who have never heard of quince fruit as I had not either up until recently, it’s a small delicious fruit that somewhat resembles a pear and tastes similar to an apple or pear when cooked. When raw, quince is pretty much inedible.


While I was preparing the hash and bacon, Glen was cooking the eggs. I don’t know how I got so lucky with a man who likes to cook!
