If you are like me, the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning is “I’m starving. What breakfast can I eat in the next 10 minutes that will help me survive this 8:30.” After much trial and error, I have found that 10 minute dish that is absolutely delicious, relatively inexpensive and will power you through your daily activities.

I spent a good half an hour brainstorming creative recipe names with my friend Monnett and the best we came up with was “Sweet sweet hash, hashing your way to class, start your day off with some hash, hash up a good time with my sweet eggs, naked and hungry, almost vegan breakfast hash, back country cooking: potatoes and eggs, tap dat hash, no famine here: sweet potato hash, trying to impress your vegetarian spinning instructor hash”. Basically we just took any phrase and put the word “hash” at the end of it. The name of this recipe doesn’t matter, all that does matter is how you feel when you take that first bite.
