Thanks to New York Daily News for featuring my Sweet Potato & Lamb Hash last weekend. With Easter coming up this Sunday, you might still be in need of a great recipe that will impress all your guests.

A star of Red Rooster‘s spring brunch menu, this is a delicious, hearty dish that won’t break the bank.

The recipe is based on Pyttipanna, a traditional Swedish dish made from leftovers. So if you have a few sweet potatoes here and a small garlic clove there, you’re already on your way to a tasty spring meal.

And! If you’re making lamb this weekend, save the extras for this delicious recipe and you’ll can make a quick weeknight dinner for one.
