"WOW. This was so good. It was so good, in fact, my husband went back 3 times for more!!! I bought already-cubed sweet potatoes so that cut down on some of the prep time. I did omit the red chili pepper, since I'm not a huge fan of spicy food. Next time I might add in some red pepper flakes to give it a little bite, but not make it too spicy. Instead of ham, I opted for ground pork. Once I started adding it in, I quickly realized I only needed about 1C of the ground pork (otherwise it would have been too much). I did notice that by the time I was supposed to add the eggs, the oil/butter on the bottom of the cast iron was thinning out. I put the eggs in (only 2 since my pan was starting to overflow), and waited about 6 minutes (I like my eggs a bit firmer). After all was said and done, the bottom layer of food was a bit burnt. Fortunately, it almost gave it a caramelized flavor, and didn't make the dish taste bad. Maybe next time I'll add in a bit more oil before I start cooking the eggs, so that the other items don't burn. Overall, an awesome dish, and I can't wait to make it again!"

"I had a lot of sweet potatoes, and wanted something new and this was it, I used a yellow pepper, diced jalpeno, 1/2 cup Tillamook Italian cheese, scramble eggs with 1% milk as I like farmers hash the best didn't put any salt or pepper, and my wife and I liked this very much. I made these changes because out what I had on my shelves"
