I finally got around to buying a couple sweet potatoes so that I could share one of my go-to recipes that I’ve been toying around with for awhile now.
Recently I’ve been experimenting with putting a bit of Kebsa, Curry, brown sugar, cinnamon, and Tumeric powder in with the potatoes while roasting in the oven. IT’S BEEN TURNING OUT REALLY GOOD! But it’s not quite ready yet…. I’ll do another post about the altered recipe as a MEAL PREP item sometime in the near future.
But since I don’t quite have the altered version of this recipe perfected, I’ll show my basic recipe.
This dish IS paleo, whole 30, gluten and dairy free. It’s really good and not too hard to prep or get ready. Also — I ended up using turkey bacon as opposed to regular — simply because I had a package of it in the fridge that I needed to use. Keep in mind that is something you can do to alter the recipe, if you want it less oily and fatty.
Sweet Potato and Red Pepper Breakfast Hash
- 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1/2 white onion
- 1 tblspn garlic
- 1 package bacon
- salt and pepper
- coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Cut the bacon into bite size pieces and fry in a skillet
- While bacon is frying, peel and chop the sweet potatoes in small bite sized squares
- Once the bacon is nice and crispy, set aside on a paper towel. Leave the bacon grease in the skillet
- Put the sweet potatoes in the skillet with the leftover bacon grease, and brown them on high. RESIST the urge to stir too much — they won’t brown if you don’t let them sit for a couple minutes, on each side. Season with salt and pepper before finished.
- While sweet potatoes are browning, slice the onion and pepper.
- Once the potatoes are done, mix the bacon, potatoes, peppers, garlic, and onions in a medium sized glass dish
- Bake in the oven set at 350 degrees, for 15-20 minutes.
- Once cooked, let cool for at least 10 minutes. While cooling, fry a couple eggs and add on top of the dish!
This basic recipe can be altered and be changed with so many different types of seasonings. You could do something simple like scramble the egg instead of cooking it over easy, to change it up a bit. I’ve even added kale and spinach to this recipe as well, to add an extra kick of greens.
Hope you guys enjoy this recipe!
