Recipe Ingredients

Tender sweet potatoes and tangy feta cheese create the perfect flavor balance.

  • Butter – You can use non-stick or cooking spray.
  • Sweet potatoes – Purple sweet potatoes are also okay.
  • Yellow onions – White onions are a good swap.
  • Olive oil – Feel free to use avocado or coconut oil.
  • Salt and pepper – Kosher salt and freshly-cracked black pepper are best.
  • Oregano – Go for dried parsley if you prefer.
  • Feta cheese – Goat cheese works too.

How to Make Sweet Potato Hash with Onions & Feta

Once everything is seasoned, just let it roast until done. Scroll to the bottom of the post for the full recipe card.

  1. Prep the oven. Preheat the oven to 450˚F. Grease the baking pan with butter and set it aside.
  2. Toss everything. Mix the sweet potatoes, onions, and olive oil in a bowl until well combined. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano. Toss again.
  3. Roast it. Spread out the veggie mixture in the baking pan in a single layer. Pop it into the oven for 10 minutes. Stir the veggies and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until fork-tender.
  4. Serve. Remove the pan from the oven. Sprinkle it with feta cheese, serve, and enjoy!

Tips and Variations

  • Add leftovers. Stir in leftover veggies, like these Roasted Potatoes and Carrots during the last 10 minutes in the oven to reduce food waste.
  • Avoid over-crowding. Use a large baking sheet so the veggies have a bit of space between them. This allows the heat to flow through and around them evenly. If they’re piled on top of each other or packed in, some pieces will turn out raw. Bake in batches if your baking sheet isn’t large enough.
  • Mix it in the pan. Reduce clean-up by adding all of the ingredients to the baking pan and gently mixing them there. You don’t necessarily need a bowl for tossing.
  • Add more veggies. Mix 1-2 cups chopped bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, carrots, or parsnips. Bake as usual for a heartier bite.
  • Spice it up. Toss the veggies with 1-2 teaspoons paprika, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper for extra depth.
  • Give it a protein boost. Once ready, mix in 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken, sliced Air Fryer Turkey Breast, or sliced breakfast sausages.

Serving Suggestions

This sweet potato hash is the perfect breakfast or brunch side. Pair it with some fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes and crispy bacon. My Sheet Pan Eggs or Baked Eggs in Tomato Cups are other great options. A sunny side-up egg works too. For something a little fancier, go for my Spinach Quiche.

How To Store & Reheat Leftovers

Store leftovers in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge for up to 4 days. To reheat it, microwave it for 30 seconds, stir, and microwave again until warm. If it’s frozen, reheat it in the oven at 350F for 20-25 minutes. I also love keeping some in the freezer for lazy weekends, but freeze it without the feta for up to 3 months. Thaw it overnight in the fridge or reheat it straight from frozen.
