Crazy Ingredient Challenge - Egg Beet Hashbrown Skillet

It is time to think out of the box and come up with a recipe for the Crazy Ingredient Challenge.  This month's challenge is beets and eggs.

As usual I am making my recipe at the last minute.  I had a couple of ideas of what I wanted to make but at the last minute I decided to make a breakfast.  What could be better for breakfast but eggs and hashbrowns?  Instead of potato hashbrown I decided to make them with beets and yams.

Not quite as appetizing this way but still tasted amazing...

Last month I made ~  Quinoa Kale Salad

You may be wondering what this crazy ingredient challenge is about.  Each month we are given two ingredients and then we get to make a recipe with these ingredients.  It is so much fun trying to figure something out with the ingredients.  If you like to think outside of the box and want to join this group, either contact me or you can contact Dawn from Spatulas on Parade.

  1. Love, love, LOVE your challenge recipe. Looks amazing and probably tastes just as good.

  2. I have used sweet potatoes in hash but not beets, great use of our ingredients.

  3. Sounds like a great breakfast. We have beets in the garden this year, and I am learning ways to use them. I will have to try this a day when my husband is on the road. As tasty as I think this would be, I don't think I could get his old school mind around beets in his breakfast!

  4. Sounds yummy, and I bet if you did a baked eggs version of this dish it would be pretty to serve too.

  5. I think that I'll make this for breakfast today.
