Most breakfast casseroles I see call for hash browns, and I thought it would be fun to make one using sweet potato hash browns.  I love sweet potatoes and have been cutting one up to saute for breakfast and adding an egg on top for a few weeks.  So this is a make ahead version of that sweet potato hash, perfect for Easter brunch.

I baked the sweet potatoes until crispy, and then cracked an egg on top, sprinkled some cheese and put them back in the oven for 5 minutes.

You could change this up by adding in some sausage or bacon, or varying the kind of cheese you use.  All in all this is a simple casserole that is very satisfying.
