Two Budget-Friendly Brunch Recipes for a Crowd

Sweet potato hash w/ muffin pan poached eggs


  • 3 Sweet potatoes 
  • 1/2 cup Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tsp Brown sugar
  • 1 cup Diced chorizo
  • 6 Eggs


Wash and chop sweet potatoes. Heat oven to 400°. 

Toss chopped sweet potatoes in olive oil and add spices. Toss all ingredients to be sure potatoes are well coated. Spread evenly over a foil lined sheet pan. Roast in oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and combine chorizo to potatoes while flipping to ensure that the potatoes will cook evenly. Return to the oven and roast for another fifteen minutes or until fork tender. 

After returning the chorizo and potatoes to the oven liberally oil a muffin pan. Pour about a tablespoon of water in each muffin hole. Crack an egg into each and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook in oven for eight to ten minutes or until whites are firm while yolks still appear runny. Once cooked remove from the oven and carefully lift out each egg with a slotted spoon and allow to dry on a paper towel covered plate. 

Serve the egg on top of the chorizo and potato hash.
