You can store leftovers in the freezer or make a bulk amount to keep in the freezer until you want more another time.

I would not include the egg when I am freezing this recipe. I would make the hash and freeze that. Then add the egg when you are reheating. If you are freezing leftovers, it is fine if the egg is included.

Add sweet potatoes, red onion, and bell pepper to the skillet. Allow vegetables to cook until tender. Cooking a little longer to “burn” will add more flavor.

Step 3- Adding seasonings.

Sprinkle the salt, Pepper, and some cayenne pepper into the skillet and mix until fully incorporated.

Step 4- Cooking the eggs.

Create two holes in the veggies for the eggs using a spatula or spoon and add them in (I recommend setting the temperature too low while doing this). Cook your eggs for as long as you want. I prefer an over-easy egg.
