Sooo I woke up this morning totally befuddled by the time change.
All week I knew it was coming, both dreading the darker mornings and anticipating that free extra hour of sleep.
I stared at the kitchen clock, steaming black coffee in hand, and for a good 10 seconds I was pretty sure I was in an episode of Stranger Things. (Anyone else obsessed??)
I used to be a morning person, friends. I loved waking up and getting as much done as I could before the rest of the world joined me.
If mornings were a race, I was a marathoner.
Now, I prefer that quiet time at night, because it feels like there’s less pressure to do all the things.
In the evenings, I’ve already made peace with the day, what did and didn’t get done, so I feel more confident to just BE.
I might be coaxed back to the morning life, though, with a big breakfast like this Hilary’s Sweet Potato & Beet Breakfast Hash waiting for me on the table.
Hint hint, nudge nudge.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’m definitely more team sweet than savory for breakfast.
Colder weather and darker mornings, though, get me craving cozier foods to start off the day.
And why choose, really, when you can have the perfect combination of sweet and savory in this this Hilary’s Sweet Potato & Beet Breakfast Hash that requires only one pan and a hearty appetite to start your day.
You’re going to love the mix of smokey spiced sweet potatoes, beets, and caramelized onions paired with my new favorite Hilary’s Eat Well Apple Maple Breakfast Sausage!
I’m calling this “holiday hash” because we’re approaching holiday season and I think this mixture would look (and taste) fabulous on your family’s breakfast table!
(Also because I love alliteration, OK?)
Top it off with a dollop of guacamole, hummus, or hot sauce and you’ll be dreaming of brunch all day long.
Have you tried Hilary’s Eat Well products yet?
I discovered these plant-based patties almost two years ago, back when we lived in our apartment and cooking with Dan in our small kitchen was a bit like a game of Twister.
I had just joined Instagram and everyone was raving about them so I decided to check out what all of the fuss was about.
It was love at first bite with the World’s Best Veggie Burger, (which totally lives up to it’s name and more).
All of their products are allergen free, organic, and vegan!
Hilary’s patties made our small kitchen feel just a bit bigger, and I relaxed knowing I had a quick option I could trust whenever it was “one of those nights”…
You know, one of these evenings where you get that dreaded “oh my god I need food now and there’s nothing in the fridge” feeling.
When this happens, I usually throw together a bunch of chopped veggies, quinoa, and a Hilary’s patty to tie all together.
Their new-ish breakfast sausages patties are smokey and sweet and perfect to pair with your breakfast extravaganza!
If you can’t find Hilary’s Eat Well products near you, try serving this hash with another protein, like chickpeas or tofu, for the full meal effect.
Can you believe how close the holidays are?
I just bought my Christmas cards yesterday.
I know, it’s early. I have this scheme that if I write one card a day from now until December 25th, I might have a good chance of finishing them all without that hand-falling-syndrome I usually get when I wait until the last minute and scribble them all out with one week to spare.
Most of my breakfasts come together in under 30 minutes, but the holidays are the perfect opportunity to relax and ease into the day more slowly.
Enjoy this Hilary’s Sweet Potato & Beet Breakfast Hash as a cozy breakfast to share, or make a big pan and eat leftovers all week.
Also, this hash isn’t just for breakfast!
Try serving it at as a side to a holiday meal, served over greens for lunch, or anytime you need some quick comfort.
I like mine served with a big dollop of hummus and hot sauce (this combo never gets old!), but some other serving ideas are ketchup, avocado, guacamole, tahini, or even maple syrup.
