Breakfast Hash

PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOK TIME: 25 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes
SERVES: 3 large or 6 small
AUTHOR: Mary Mammoliti / Kitchen Confession

INGREDIENTS

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (Read Tips below for size)
1 head of broccoli, florets
1 medium red bell pepper, diced
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen corn kernels
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive Oil, to coat the sheet pan
6 large eggs

DIRECTIONS

  • Adjust your oven rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 425°F. With a little olive oil lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Place the sweet potatoes, broccoli florets, bell pepper, black beans, and corn in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Add the 3 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper and gently toss to combine.

  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes stirring halfway through, until the sweet potatoes are tender. Remove the pan from the oven and create 6 wells in the vegetables. Gently crack an egg into each well, keeping the yolk intact; season the eggs with salt and pepper.

  • Return the pan to the oven and bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until the egg whites have set.

  • Enjoy!

TIPS: 

You can enjoy this dish immediately or portion it out into your to-go containers and pack it up and you have breakfast for the week. 

When chopping your veggies, try and cut them to bite size pieces and keep them roughly the same size to ensure even cooking throughout your dish. 

To make this dish even easier, buy pre-cut vegetables from you local grocery store and cut back even more on your prep time.

The olive oil can be substituted out for avocado oil or grape seed oil if you prefer. 

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to 5 days.

Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie

🎶"C" is for Cookie, that’s good enough for me🎶 especially when it’s a Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie!

Yield: 20-30 Cookies

Ingredients:

2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg
1 cup natural peanut butter at room temperature
6 Tablespoons packed light brown sugar
½ cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
Directions:

In a medium bowl, toss the oats, cinnamon, and baking soda together. Set aside. In a medium bowl, beat the egg. Mix in the peanut butter and brown sugar with a large rubber spatula until combined. Pour in the dry ingredients and slowly mix until everything is combined. Depending how thick and/or cold your peanut butter is, you may need to use your hands. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Chill the cookie dough for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Scoop the dough, about 1 to 1.5 Tablespoons each, onto prepared baking sheet. (Note: you may need to shape these into balls using your hands) Bake two batches. Gently press down on the dough mounds with the back of a spoon to slightly flatten each cookie.

For soft chewy cookies bake for 9 to 10 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and underbaked, but that’s ok. For crispy cookies, bake for up to 12 minutes.

Allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies stay fresh stored covered at room temperature for up to 7 days, if they last that long! Cookies freeze well, up to 3 months.
