Sweet Potato-Bacon Hash

This recipe is great as a side to lunch or dinner, and is also great by itself for breakfast. To add more protein you can cook an egg sunny-side up and place it on top.

Ingredients:

    -1 large apple, cubed

    -1 sweet potato, cubed

    -5 bacon slices, chopped

    -Optional: 1 avocado, sliced

                                                                                                                    Directions:

  1. Toss bacon into a skillet and cook thoroughly.  When done, place to the side.

  2. Add sweet potato to the pan. I leave the bacon fat and use it to cook the sweet potatoes for extra flavor but you can also use butter instead, or steam with water.

  3. Once sweet potatoes are tender, toss in the apple. Cover for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  

  4. When sweet potatoes and apples are cooked and slightly browned, remove from heat and add bacon pieces.  

  5. Optional: Serve with avocado slices on top, salt and pepper to taste.
