A quick and easy breakfast recipe for a Sweet Potato and Spinach Hash Waffle Breakfast Sandwich!
Growing up, I was not your average bear come breakfast time. Eggs? Nope. Cereal? Heeeeeck no. I was more of a muffin and donut type of kid (thus my perfectly round body shape). Frozen waffles were also on the approved breakfast list…
Except I would only eat them with peanut butter and jelly. I know. Just do me a favor and judge me quietly.
Now that I’m grown up… who am I kidding, I still love me some PB&J. Just not on waffles.
But this Sweet Potato and Spinach Hash Waffle Breakfast Sandwich… it takes mornings to a whole new level.
Hello Aunt Jemima. Oh, and look at that… 4 free waffles in each package and a new resealable bag for freshness. #winning

I always feel like eating sweet potatoes are cheating. They taste so freaking good but are actually healthy for you. Don’t you wish everything was like that? I’m looking at you ice cream. And cake. And chocolate.
If you’re not into the whole runny yolk thing, feel free to go scrambled. But just saying, I might have to question our friendship. Runny yolks make life worth living.
Now dats a breakfast sandwich! Sweet potato and spinach hash. Sunnyside up egg. Crisp bacon. All nestled up between 2 frozen waffles. Heck to the yes… please.
Feel free to add a drizzle of sriracha if you’re into that sort of thing. And I hope you’re into that sorta thing.

Absolutely awesome, Chris! Our kind of weekend breakfast for sure, can’t wait to try it!
This has just confirmed that I need to get a waffle maker!
Anything with sweet potato in is good with me.
Mmmm homemade waffles….
One of my best friends in college always put peanut butter on his waffles and it was actually really good. Haha. I could eat breakfast food all day every day, so this breakfast sandwich is totally calling my name! Love all the good stuff you packed between those waffles. Awesome post!
Hahaha good glad to know I wasn’t the only one!
This is my kind of breakfast!
Ooh I sooo wish that chocolate was good for you. Well, I guess it sort of is in theory, but not really the kind I like … 😉
I agree though that it feels just too good to be true when you come across a food like sweet potatoes that are really good for you but also ridiculously delicious – I’d put avocados and macadamia nuts into that category, too.
Aaaanyway, love this breakfast idea! I never would have thought that a waffle made with sweet potato existed but hey, why ever not. Delicious!
Mmmm avocados are DEF on that list!
Yummm…this is so perfect, because when I looked at the post title, I started grumbling to myself about how it’s another recipe I’ll have to miss out on because I have yet to buy a waffle maker, but lo and behold, you’re giving me the green light to skip that step (for now anyway)!! This looks positively delicious 🙂
Yup… it’s easy peasy!
This looks like a mouthful! I’m ready to take a bite!
Hahaha it was a mouthful. But I have a big mouth so it was no trouble haha
Dude, I’m coming to your house for breakfast. That is an insanely awesome sandwich that’s worthy of…well, worthy of a Wolfpack howl. Awwoooo! Wait, it’s not 11:59pm? Oops. Nice job, my friend…this sandwich looks awesome!
Dude, stop by for breakfast anytime. Just make sure to bring some homemade ice cream.
Now that’s what I call a proper breakfast. Neat recipe Chris!
It’ll load you up to do that triathlon crap you do… and me to sit on the couch and eat more.

Wow this looks beyond good! Pinned!
I don’t think I’ve ever ever seen a waffle quite like this before! Brilliant Chris! Yes, runny yolks most definitely make life worth living and if you are just gonna sit there and look at that cake and chocolate – pass ’em onto me!
P.S. I used to think I was the only weird one who ate jelly/jam with my muffins till I read your post! 🙂
Hahahaha yes we can be weird together!
