HASH IT OUT

So I have recently discovered my new favorite sweet potato hash recipe (through trial and major error), that is so unbelievably delicious, I had to share. It's the perfect, healthy winter breakfast (or dinner, if you're like me). I am by no means a good cook - I'm probably intermediate at best - so if I can make this dish this delicious, then I promise it's super easy. 

Ingredients: 

  1. 1 Sweet Potato (cut into 1"-ish chunks)
  2. 5 strips of cooked Bacon (cut into bits however big or small ya like)
  3. Carrots (diced)
  4. Bell peppers (I used red and yellow - no measurements, just eye balled how much I wanted, and diced up)
  5. 2 Eggs 
  6. 1 Tsp (probably) of minced Garlic
  7. 1 Tbsp (or to taste) Onion Power (or real onions if you're a bad ass)
  8. 1/2 Cado (Avocado)
  9. Salt & Peppa (to taste, I guess)
  10. Fresh chopped Parsley
  11. Grass-fed Butter OR Ghee Butter (Clarified butter - Paleo compliant)

Steps:

  1. Set Oven to Broil (or 400ºF).
  2. Start by boiling half a medium-sized pot of water. Salt the water, and add the chunks of sweet potato. Once water is at a rapid boil, bring it down to a simmer and cook covered for 10-12 minutes (until tender, but not squishy). Once tender, drain all the water from the sweet potato and set aside. 
  3. While your sweet potatoes are cooking, cook the bacon in a pan until crisped on both sides. Discard excess bacon grease, but keep the pan... it'll add some flavor to the veggies. Once bacon cools, chop it up into little bits (not too small).
  4. Chop up your veggies, and cook them in the bacon pan. Add the garlic and onion powder, and a little salt & pepper. Cook for about 3 minutes (or until veggies get soft). Set aside. 
  5. In a large oven-safe pan, melt butter (or ghee). Once the butter is melted and spread evenly, add the sweet potato and form one layer (so all pieces get cooked evenly). Cook for 3 minutes, and try to flip sweet potato pieces without smashing them. I use a spatula to flip, but whatever you find easiest. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Do that flip again one or two more times (until all pieces have been cooked on each side).
  6. Add veggies and bacon to your sweet potato pan. Mix around so everything is pretty evenly distributed. Cook for 2-3 more minutes. 
  7. Form two holes for the eggs. Add eggs in the holes, transfer to oven and let broil for 3-5 minutes (depending on how runny you want your eggs, and how hot your oven gets). I usually stay closer to 3 minutes, because my oven gets hot and I like my eggs oooozy. Remove pan, and salt & pepper to taste. 
  8. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and some avocado slices, and you're ready to SERVE!

I hope you guys try this recipe out, and let me know how it is!

 Bon Appetit!
