Veggie, Bacon and Sweet Potato Hash

Updated: Feb 11

Breakfast for dinner! This veggie, bacon and sweet potato hash was a welcomed fall meal, and my peanut gallery even suggested I open a restaurant and put this on the menu. Top with a soft egg and add to a bed of greens for a heartier meal, or meal prep this for your morning rush. Either way - the protein, fiber, fat and colorful veggies will start or end your day right.





INGREDIENTS


- 3 pieces of bacon

- 1/2 cup diced onions

- 2 cloves minced garlic

- 1 cup sweet potato

- 1/4 cup chicken stock

DIRECTIONS


1. Sauté 3 pieces of chopped bacon in a cast iron (or any type) skillet over medium heat until it starts to get crispy.


2. Add 1/2 cup of diced onions and 2 cloves minced garlic and sauté for a minute or so.


3. Add 1 cup diced bell pepper, 1 cup diced sweet potato, a shake of crushed red pepper and kosher salt plus 1/4 cup chicken stock. Cover for 6-7 minutes until potatoes are soft.
