This Weight Watchers Sweet Potato Hash Recipe is one of my favorite low point meal prep recipes that your whole family will love. One of the reasons I love to make this sweet potato hash is that I can prep it once at the beginning of the week and heat it up every morning for a mess free breakfast. I add an egg to make it the perfect and well rounded breakfast recipe.

Sweet potato hash is more than just a tasty breakfast food. Sweet potatoes are good for you, low in points, high in fiber, and so delicious. I’ve also included a few ideas for pairing this side dish and making some delicious meals from it.

How to Make Healthy Shredded Sweet Potato Hash

  1. Clean, peel using a vegetable peeler, and then shred the sweet potatoes. You can shred sweet potatoes easily with a food processor, it’s my favorite way. You can also use a box grater.
  2. If the potatoes seem too wet, you can remove excess water by laying the shredded potatoes out on paper towels for a few minutes before you start cooking them.
  3. Chop the onion into small chunks. If you’d rather shred them in the food processor with the sweet potatoes you can definitely do that. 
  4. Mix the potatoes, onion, and seasoning in a large bowl or plastic bag and mix well. A plastic bag is a great way to get the seasoning onto all the small bits and bites.
  5. Heat coconut oil or olive oil in a large skillet, and then stir to combine everything together in the pan. I like using cast iron pans to make these sweet potatoes. It gives them a nice little crispiness around the edges.
  6. Add grated sweet potato mix and cook over medium to medium-high heat. Flip occasionally to lightly brown on all sides while cooking.
  7. The potatoes will take approximately 20 to 25 minutes to cook.

Recipe Tips

  • Looking to add more veggies to your diet? This is a perfect recipe to add them to. – bell peppers and mushrooms could be added to this recipe easily to help fill you up! 
  • If you’d looking to crisp these up without oil, cook them in the oven slowly on a sheet pan at a low temperature. 
  • Looking to round out your breakfast with some protein? I highly recommend making this Homemade Turkey Sausage with ground turkey – it’s zero WW points, super easy to meal prep and freeze, and perfectly compliments this Sweet Potato Hash! 
  • When I freeze this recipe, I divide it into personal portions and stick it in small freezer bags. I like adding multiple smaller bags into one gallon sized freezer bag. I pull it out of the freezer when my alarm goes off (or even the night before) and cook on low heat until it’s thawed.  

Are sweet potatoes good for inflammation?

Yes, sweet potatoes are loaded with great vitamins and minerals. Vitamin C and E along with beta carotene and carotenoids alpha help to reduce inflammation throughout the body.

If you have issues related to inflammation like allergies, asthma, IBD, Coeliac, or other autoimmune diseases, you could benefit from adding anti-inflammatory foods to your diet.

    Thank you for compiling this recipe for WW. I haven’t made it yet (today!) but I know I’ll like it. However, I don’t see a portion size for 3 points, just the 6 serving notation. To be accurate, one will have to weigh or measure the whole recipe, then divide by 6, which would be a hassle for sure. Did I miss something?

    1. Sara Anderson says:

      Weighing would definitely be the most accurate but you could eye-ball it. Serving size should be about 1/2 cup :)
