There is no doubt that avocados fit snugly into many breakfast dishes. This sweet potato hash pops with color and flavor, thanks to a creamy avocado sauce. For the sauce, the California Avocados are tossed in the blender with some Greek yogurt, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper. The result is a spreadable sauce that begs you to eat it with a spoon. So it’s a good thing that there’s a little leftover in this recipe!
