Eggs with Sweet Potato Hash

I do love sweet potatoes... those lovely dark orange Beauregard or Louisiana sweet potatoes.  Here we call them yams to distinguish them from the drier, yellow variety, that I have never cared for at all.

I have been trying to encourage The Captain to eat more sweet potatoes instead of white or red potatoes lately, cause they are so full of vitamins, so I made up this dish for breakfast recently.  It went over pretty well, too!

You can easily halve the ingredients to make a single serving or even just use one egg per person if you prefer.  We had this for brunch so I wanted to make sure it would be hearty enough to get us through till tea time!
