Sweet Potato Hash

This is a filling and nutritious breakfast recipe. Takes a little bit of prep work, but so worth it!

Prep and cook time: 30-45 min
Tools: Heavy sauce pan with cover
Serves: 2 very hungry people, 4 not so hungry people

4 slices of bacon
1/2 sweet yellow onion
2 garlic cloves
1 sweet potato
1 bell pepper
2-3 handfuls of kale (preferably dinosaur kale)
1 tbs fresh rosemary
1 tsp fresh thyme
1 tbs oregano
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
1 tbs coconut oil
2 eggs

1. Prep your food by dicing the sweet potato (peeling optional depending on preference), onion, garlic and bell paper. Also, clean the kale and tear into pieces off the stalks. Set aside.
2. Cook bacon slices in a heavy sauce pan until crispy. Remove the bacon, dry with paper towells and cut/tear into bits. Set aside.
3. Cook the onion in the bacon grease until translusent (1-2 min).
4. Add the garlic and diced sweet potato. Cook for 4-6 min. Add the tbs of coconut oil if there is not enough bacon grease.
5. Add the bell pepper (any color is fine, I like yellow or red to add bright color to the dish). Cook for 2-4 min.
6. Add the Kale, herbs and salt. Cover the dish for 2-4 min to steam and wilt the kale.
7. Add the bacon bits.
8. Set the hash aside and cook eggs to your preference. (We enjoy poached eggs with a runny yolk over the dish. Poached eggs is also the best way to cook an egg to retain it's nutrients and prevent oxidation).
9. Plate the hash and place your egg on top.
10. Add salt and pepper to taste. Brian also likes to add chulala sauce for an extra kick.
11. Enjoy!


  1. I read no bacon, sausage or deli meat was allowed.

    1. Hi! Where did you read this? While it's true that processed meats are not as desirable as un-processed, the reason for this has more to do with the other Whole30 rules: no added sugars, MSG, sulfites or other potentially damaging chemical preservatives/additives. Jess and I buy sugar-free, pastured pork bacon where the only ingredient is sea salt. U.S. Wellness Meats has a lot of great grass-fed/pastured meat products that are minimally processed without any added sugars.
