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:
Here's what I added:
olive oil (about 2 T)
*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
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:
and have not been disappointed. doesn't need anything, but it doesn't hurt it, either.
Here's mine with bacon, purple sweets, and summer squash.

Reheats like a dream! Great for breakfasts!
just those three ingredients? not a huge fan of summer squash, but with enough bacon, i can eat anything? :-)
Here's what's in there:

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.

Eggs are made to be eaten over-medium...gel like yolks for the win!!
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.
