Whether you call them homefries or hash, this crispy potato dish is essential to any well-rounded breakfast repertoire. Using sweet potato adds another level of flavour and texture to this classic breakfast side dish.


    120 g / 1⁄2 cup Crystal Margarine, plus extra for spreading on the bread
    1 medium Onion, diced
    4 cloves Garlic, chopped
    2 large Sweet potatoes, washed
    6 g / 2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
    2 g / 2 tsp Dried oregano
    Salt and pepper


  1. Leave the skin on the sweet potatoes. Cut them in half lengthwise, and then lengthwise again, leaving you with quartered sweet potatoes.
  2. Cut the wedges widthwise to approximately 1⁄2-inch wide.
  3. In a large frying pan, melt the Crystal Margarine over medium heat.
  4. Once the margarine has melted, add the sliced sweet potato, onion, garlic, pumpkin pie spice, and dried oregano.
  5. Turn down the heat to medium-low. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are golden and soft.
  6. Remove from the heat and serve alongside your favourite breakfast mains.
