Can I meal prep this for the week?

Yes! You can meal prep the sweet potato hash if you want to have this for breakfast for the week. I like using these containers for storage in the fridge!

What if I don’t have a cast iron skillet?

While I do think the sweet potato cooks best when sauteed in the cast iron skillet, you can also cook this in a non-stick pan.
