Pulled pork sweet potato hash is one of my all-time favorite brunch recipes. It combines several of my favorite ingredients – sweet potatoes, over easy eggs, and pulled pork. I like to think of it as a foodie, fall version of corned beef hash.

To make the pulled pork, cook a pork shoulder (or other cut) in a crockpot the day before. I usually put the shoulder in the crockpot with a ½ cup of liquid (water, wine, or beer work well) and let it cook on low for about 6-8 hours. Shred with fork.

Once you have the pulled pork, the hash is quick and easy. Start by cooking diced, seasoned sweet potatoes in a cast iron skillet on medium-low, stirring occasionally. While the potatoes are cooking, chop the red onion.

I just discovered this moment that dicing means to cut into the size of a dice. Seriously? That makes it so much easier to remember!

Once the potatoes are golden brown, add the onion, a little more salt, and continue to cook until the onion is soft. Stir in the pulled pork.

Crack eggs into small pockets in the hash. Cover and cook on low until eggs set. You can also cook your eggs separately however you like or, if you’re feeling extra adventurous, put the whole skillet under the broiler until the eggs are done. Add a few green herbs (I used cilantro), sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brunch is served!

One final note. Hot sauce (or bbq sauce) is amazing on this dish 🙂

    I made this last night, and it was RIDICULOUSLY GOOD!! The sweet potatoes were perfect! Initially, this didn’t sound like a good combination to me, but it is all things that my husband likes, and I have to throw him a bone, occasionally, so I tried it. SO GLAD I DID!! Thanks for the recipe! The pictures sold me on it!

      Hi Kim,

      I’m delighted to hear you enjoyed the recipe! It’s certainly one of our favorites too. We happen to have pulled pork on hand, so I think I’ll have to make it this weekend. Thanks for the nice comments on my photos 🙂

    I made this last night using some leftover pulled pork and it was amazing. It made me question why I have avoided hash for so long. One thing I wanted to point out though is there is a missing step on the printed form recipe. You are never told when to put the pork in, it just mysteriously is there in step 3.

      Hi Lisa! I’m delighted you enjoyed the recipe. Thanks for catching the missing step – I’ve updated the recipe 🙂

    I made pulled pork a few weeks ago and had the idea (in the shower, where the best ideas are always born) to make the leftovers into a breakfast hash. I googled it and got to your blog totally randomly. Best. Breakfast. Ever.

    Today I had a bunch of barbacoa beef leftovers, so I adjusted the hash recipe with tomato and green bell peppers. My boyfriend and I like to make a special breakfast every Saturday, and your recipe is awesome! Delicious and versatile.

    I used your recipe today for my family’s lunch – it was a hit! My middle child, who typically avoids anything “egg”, though it was good- and that the egg was the best part! Thank you!

      I forgot to add the 5-star rating!

    This looks fantastic. I love the idea of combining sweet potatoes and pulled pork together, which goes so well with sweet things.

      Thanks Justin! I love pairing pulled pork with sweet foods too! I bet this hash would go great on some cornbread waffles 🙂

    I love a good breakfast hash! I’ve never tried it with sweet potatoes tho – such a great idea!

      Hi Jessica! I love breakfast skillets too! The sweet potatoes are definitely worth trying if you get a chance – they add a great flavor and texture to the dish 🙂

    Oh wow, this looks awesome. I think I had to stop myself from drooling. I just love dishes that have a bunch of everything in one bite – combining the sweet potatoes and the pulled pork and cooked onions all together. And topping things with a runny egg is always a great idea 🙂

    I pinned this!
