Paleo Sweet Potato Hash With Bacon


Start to Finish: 30 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon Grass-Fed Ghee, divided
  • 2 cups sweet potato (about 2 large whole potatoes), peeled and diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 3 cups Brussels sprouts, halved with outer leaves removed
  • 6 strips pastured bacon, cut into thick chunks
  • 2-3 sprigs each fresh rosemary and thyme
  • Fresh parsley leaves to garnish
  • 2 pastured eggs (optional)


  1. Heat a wide saucepan on medium heat. Add 3/4 tablespoons of the ghee to the pan.
  2. Add diced sweet potato and half of the rosemary and thyme to the pan.
  3. Lightly brown the sweet potato all over. Add a splash of water to the pan and cover. Steam for 8 minutes.
  4. Remove the lid and add bacon pieces to the pan. Crisp bacon for 3 minutes.
  5. Add halved Brussels sprouts and remaining herbs.
  6. Cook the mixture until softened, about 5 minutes.
  7. Plate hash with remaining ghee to top.
  8. Cook eggs as desired, if using. I cooked mine sunny side up with yolks just set.
  9. Transfer the eggs to the plate and scatter the parsley. Season to taste with salt and serve.
