Sweet Potato Spinach Home Fries on plateSometimes, not having all the right ingredients leads you to create a great new recipe. We wanted home fries for breakfast, but I didn't have enough potatoes for a whole batch. I used one potato, one sweet potato, some onion, and spinach. The sweet potato gave it a lovely sugary edge, while the spinach gave it a nice healthy green touch. I microwaved the potatoes first so they cooked evenly with the onions, and got a nice crisp exterior when finished.


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 servings as a side dish


  • 1 large russet potato
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Peel potato and sweet potato. Cut potato in half. Poke sweet potato with fork a few times. Microwave on high for 4 minutes.
  2. potatoes cut in half
  3. When cool enough to handle, cut the potato and sweet potato into cubes.
