Bacon Sweet Potato Hash with Soft Baked Eggs

SweetPotatoHash

This is our go to meal for post workouts on the weekend! Depending on your goals, you might use fewer sweet potatoes or reserve this meal on days when you have longer metabolic conditioning and want to restore your muscle glycogen post workout. Remember the Paleo diet is carb agnostic so use this meal based on your activity level. Oh and by the way it is absolutely delicious!!

From our kitchen to yours, Bennett and Dana

Ingredients

6 eggs
3 slices of extra thick back, chopped into uniform pieces
1 medium yellow onion, chopped into uniform pieces
2 medium sweet potatoes, chopped into uniform pieces
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeno, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
1 ripe avocado
2 ounces goat cheese (optional based on dietary restrictions)
1-2 tablespoons fat (coconut oil, grassfed butter/ghee, bacon), if needed
Sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
In a 3 quart or larger pan (cast iron pan recommended), cook the bacon first at low medium heat, which will allow you to cook the remaining ingredients in the bacon fat and render the fat slowly
Once fat has rendered out (about 10 minutes), add the onions, sweet potatoes, garlic and jalapeno
Turn the burner to medium-high heat
Patiently cook the sweet potato mixture until the sweet potatoes crisp (a smaller dice on the sweet potatoes helps with crispiness)
Once you have the desired crispiness, take the heat down and cook for another 10 minutes (Note: the addition of additional fat may be necessary to achieve the desired level of crispiness)
Create little pockets for the eggs within the dish
Crack the eggs and place in each pocket
Bake the dish for about 6 minutes and then broil for the last 90 seconds to cook the top of the eggs
Do not over cook to prevent overheating those delicious yolks that blend so nicely with the dish (Note: the eggs will cook slice when rested in the pan so you can take the eggs out a little earlier than you might think)
After cooking let the dish rest for about 5 minutes, and add your toppings of chopped cilantro, avocado, and optional goat cheese
