Breakfast Sweet Potato Hash (AIP, Paleo, Gluten-Free)

Breakfast is the hardest meal for me. I usually make a smoothie because they are so simple to put together. But every now and then I need a change and this recipe is one I will make when I want something different! It has such great flavour and just hits the spot when you are hungry.

It does take a bit of preparation, so be warned.

This recipe actually makes enough for two, but it can be doubled.
