I love making potato breakfast hash. I love crispy potatoes and I definitely love intensely flavored sweet potatoes. This Instant Pot ® potato breakfast hash combines both for a deliciously satisfying and savory breakfast or brunch.
Last weekend, I found myself looking for a quick breakfast that was sure to please everyone, leave them feeling satisfied, and that I could make with whatever I had in the kitchen. I looked up at the half-full box of crispy rice cereal and considered sending my husband on a donut run. However, I like a good challenge. I opened the produce bin. I inevitably buy more produce than can use and by Sunday night I am tossing out funky fruits and veggies. I need to remember to make more hash. It is a great way to use up neglected produce. With some spices and my Instant Pot ®, I threw together this breakfast hash, which I served along with eggs. Everyone loved it.
Potato Breakfast Hash
1 large potato, diced (about 1/2 inch dice) - about 1 cup
1 large sweet potato, diced (can be diced larger than potatoes, because they cook faster) - about 1 cup
1 cup bell pepper, chopped - about 2 peppers
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon of paprika
pinch of cayenne
1/2 cup water
1. Toss prepared vegetables in olive oil and spices.
2. Add everything to Instant Pot ® pressure cooker along with 1/2 cup water. Set it to manual - high pressure. Adjust the time to 0 (zero) minutes, making sure the pot is in sealing mode. When timer goes off, turn the steam release handle to venting.
3. When it is safe, open the pot and turn on the saute function. Saute for 5-6 minutes or until the potatoes start to brown.
Optional: For a vegetarian option, top with a sunny-side-up egg.
