Sweetcorn and Potato Breakfast Hash
A healthy, easy-to-prepare breakfast hash full of sweet, smoky flavours. Ready to eat in 30 minutes! Makes for a lovely brunch.
This sweetcorn and potato breakfast hash has become my new favourite thing to make on the weekend! Who knew having spiced paprika potatoes with fried onions, peppers and garlic, wilted spinach and sweetcorn would feel SO right in the morning! I’m a total convert.
This recipe all started out when researching Australian recipes to make for the blog. I came across what is known as ‘potato hash’ but that’s basically like the British hash brown. I struggled to find Australian recipes actually, so I decided to go off on a tangent and create this breakfast hash, which I’m sure Aussie’s would love!
Why should I make Sweetcorn Breakfast Hash?
- Serve up something different on the weekend! Perfect for brunch.
- You’ll LOVE the smoky flavours from the roasted paprika potatoes.
- Easy to prepare and make!
- Very nutritious and very tasty!
Ingredients for sweetcorn hash
- Bell peppers – bell peppers are lovely and sweet, perfect for this dish!
- Red onion – I’m a huge fan of red onion so it had to be chosen over white!
- Spinach – Spinach is always welcome in a breakfast hash to add some nutrition but also as it cooks down really well. You can use frozen if you’d prefer. Obviously it would need a bit longer cooking.
- Frozen sweetcorn – As a toddler mum, I’ve always got a bag in the freezer!
- Potato – I used 3 large potatoes but I’ll leave it up to you to decide how many you’d like to use. It doesn’t really matter.
- Garlic cloves – I just love the stuff. It had to go in!
- Sweet smoked paprika – Paprika is one of my favourite spices. I love the way potatoes taste when roasted with it. The sweet, smoky flavours are so delicious!
- Vegetable oil – Of course you can use olive oil too.
What’s the best frying pan to use for a breakfast hash??
The best frying pan for a breakfast hash would be something deep and wide. I use a 24cm Le Creuset saute pan for mine. I found that this pan best kept in all the ingredients and was ample space for it all! They are also oven-safe, in case you need to keep your sweetcorn hash warm in the oven before serving.
- Chopping board
- Chef’s knife
- Baking tray
- Deep, wide frying pan (or saute-pan)
- Measuring spoons
- Medium bowl
