Every Brunch menu needs a potato dish, and this Caramelized Onion and Sweet Potato Hash is your best bet!
Sweet, tender caramelized onions soaked in balsamic vinegar and brown sugar, mixed with perfectly cooked sweet potatoes with just the right amount of char… Is that not the most sensational sentence you’ve ever read?
Caramelized onions are good on everything — it’s a staple on cheesesteaks and burgers, goes great on top of flatbread and pizza, and can elevate a simple salad or vegetable to the ends of the earth. Caramelized onions are magical, I tell you, they are just magical. This Caramelized Onion and Sweet Potato Hash is another dish I made during Bubby’s 90th birthday celebration. Mom and Dad were here for it too, and everyone went crazy over this recipe. I’m pretty sure we all went back for seconds and thirds, and probably could have gone for fourths too had there not been so many other delicious things to enjoy.
What’s great about this recipe is that the onions are made in the slow cooker! You can just throw ’em in and let ’em cook all day without having to worry about a thing. Of course, you could cook them on the stovetop too…but a slow cooker is just so much easier!
One of my favorite things about brunch are the potatoes. I love a pile of super crispy, salty potatoes to go with my entree — some favorites are quiche, frittatas or egg white omelettes. When I brunch, I prefer savory. Caramelized Onion and Sweet Potato Hash is a bit on the sweeter side, but still totally satisfied my appetite. Like I said, caramelized onions make everything better.
