Photography: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
Sweet potatoes are a creamy addition to this breakfast classic. To avoid mushy hash, don't boil the potatoes too long; remove them from the water while they're still al dente.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups (3/4-inch) diced peeled sweet potato (about 1 pound)
  • 2 cups (3/4-inch) diced red potato (about 8 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup diced Canadian bacon (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 2/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated whole nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
