Sweet Potato-Beet Hash with Fried Eggs and Kale
This recipe has been a great way to introduce beets and kale to some who have never tried. The sweetness of the potatoes and the savory eggs makes this breakfast one of our camp favorites.

3 whole Sweet Potatoes (medium-size)
2 whole Beets (medium-size)
1 whole Onion (medium-size)

4 large Eggs
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
