Sheet Pan Veggie Hash + Eggs
So, it looks like another trip to the Super Bowl for our Patriots! Don’t they just know how to come from behind, and make it look easy? Though, in truth, they are able to do that because they practice. Practice. Practice. They know how to hang tough, not let the emotional clutter get in the way, and stick to their own agenda. We can all gain a valuable lesson from that work ethic.
In order to stick to your agenda, you have to know what it is—-in any category. If we’re talking food, my agenda is to eat real food, mostly plants. I know that I feel my best when I eat whole, unprocessed food in as close to its original state as possible.
I have a love/hate relationship with eggs. Maybe it’s more like an “on again/off again” situation. Currently, we’re on again…..so for now, including them in my menus is a good thing. I hope it is for you too—-but believe me, if you’re in the camp that is off again—-I get it, really, I do. However, if you’re on again with eggs, then you will really appreciate this recipe for sheet pan veggie hash + eggs.
So often, people ask if I’m vegan, or if I’m gluten-free—or a number of other labels. I guess the honest answer to any of those questions will always be “none of the above.” I go with what makes me feel good, and often that’s a bit different—but I’m honest with myself about it. It works well for me. I know that when I indulge in certain foods (while they may be tasty and fun at the time) I just don’t feel great afterwards….and that’s the truth. Besides, I think labels are limiting and don’t serve most people well.
Sheet Pan Veggie Hash + Eggs is the ideal breakfast (or brunch, or lunch or dinner) if you:
- Need of a well-balanced meal.
- Are short on time.
- Have limited oven space.
- Don’t want to spend much time cleaning up from cooking.
- Have a large crowd coming.
- Are cooking for just 1-2 people.
- Love a tasty meal that is ready all at the same time.
- Are currently crushing on eggs.
- Like to follow a recipe.
- Are comfortable making substitutions to own this dish. (if these aren’t your favorite veggies….no problem!).
- Have an agenda to eat real food and want to stick to it!
- Whole30 is your thing.
- Eating a paleo diet is important to you.
- Are not on a diet, but want to eat healthy food.
I’m not sure what took me so long to jump onto the sheet pan bandwagon? To be clear, I own a fair amount of sheet pans and use them regularly. They are great for roasting veggies or potatoes, baking cookies, making kale chips, veggie burgers or granola….but making an entire meal on one sheet pan—that’s what I’m newly smitten with. This recipe is flexible too….you want to sub broccoli for fennel? Go for it! Purple potatoes for the sweets? No problem! Still one pan. Still good.
No mess, no fuss. So simple. Take a lesson from the Patriots play book: Show up (for yourself) and don’t let anything (or anyone) get in the way….DO YOUR JOB (eat wholesome real food)!
