  • Sweet potato hash

    I had a few things left over from our weekly CSA box, and needed to use them.

    Here's what I had:

    sweet potato
    onion
    garlic
    asparagus

    Here's what I added:

    bacon
    olive oil (about 2 T)
    S&P

    *Fry four or five strips of bacon to desired doneness and set aside.
    *Small dice the sweet potato (1/2" cubes) and fry in bacon fat until caramelized and browned a bit
    *Cut onion into VERY thin quarter-circles (not sure of proper culinary term...basically quarter the onion, then slice into thin crescent shaped pieces) and saute until translucent
    *Throw asparagus and mushrooms in for a couple minutes
    *chop bacon and toss it in

    End result:



    Very satisfying, rich, fatty, umami, hearty.

    I have made this with whatever is left over in the fridge a couple different times. The onion, bacon, and sweet potato are the staple ingredients.

      i've also topped this with:

      yellow mustard
      hot sauce
      primal ketchup

      and have not been disappointed. doesn't need anything, but it doesn't hurt it, either.

            Here's what's in there:
            • 1 onion, chopped
            • 1 purple sweet potato, peeled, cubed
            • 8 strips bacon, chopped
            • 1 summer squash, chopped
            • 1/2 tsp dried thyme, rubbed between my fingers
            • 2 garlic cloves, diced
            • All the grease from the bacon
            • ...and eggs


            Cook bacon until crisp, remove to a bowl, add the squash and onion, cook until translucent, add sweet potatoes, slap on a lid. Wait 5 minutes. Stir, add thyme and garlic, stir some more, slap lid on again. Wait 5 more minutes. Test a thick cube to make sure they're cooked through. Crack eggs on top. Slap on lid for 2 minutes. Add a dash of water. Slap on lid again for 2 more minutes. Eeeeeat.

            Mr. Onalark is not a fan of runny eggs, hence the extra egg-cookin' time. If I were a single lady (heaven forfend!) I would probably cook my eggs less.

                Yum, these look great! Before I went primal I would make a sweet potato, black bean, and corn hash. I never eat beans or corn anymore so maybe I'll make that again one day just because it's SO GOOD!

                  I made a sweet potato hash to eat with my eggs for lunch yesterday.. 1 potato, 4 slices of thick bacon, half an onion, salt and pepper.. I could live off of the stuff.. Unfortunately, my stomach can only handle the sweet potatos in moderation.
