Last weekend I was cooking at Nashville Farmers Market’s Harvest Celebration, demonstrating what can be done with some of the late season produce such as sweet potatoes, onions, and greens.
The recipe I cooked up was a breakfast hash using the aforementioned vegetables as well as bacon and eggs from KLD Farm, a local farm specializing in pastured meats.
If you’re an omnivore and enjoy eating animal protein, then this meal is for you. (To my vegetarian friends: there are lots more recipes for you on my blog)

The result was a sweet and savory meal perfect for weekend brunch or even weeknight dinners. I’d like to share it with you now!
Sweet Potato Bacon Breakfast Hash
(Serves 4)
1 large sweet potato, cut into cubes
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Sea Salt and Black Pepper
3 slices of bacon
3 eggs
1 cup kale, chopped
1 onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Toss the sweet potatoes with coconut oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes
(Note: Roast your potatoes the night before and you’ve saved yourself this step when you make this meal for breakfast or brunch)
2. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the bacon and cook until bacon is crispy. Remove bacon from pan and allow to cool.
3. Add eggs to the pan and scramble, then remove from pan and set aside.
4. Add the onions and garlic to pan and season with salt. Cook until onions caramelize. Add the sweet potatoes to the pan and stir, cooking for another 5 minutes.
5. Remove pan from heat. Crumble the bacon into bits and add it back to the pan with the veggies. Add in the scrambled eggs and kale. Mix it all up to combine the ingredients well, then enjoy immediately!
Why I Love This Meal: 
  • If you’ve ever worked with me before, then you know my secret formula for lasting energy includes protein, fiber, and fat at every meal. The combination of bacon, eggs, and veggies will serve to keep you satisfied and promote a balanced blood sugar.
  • The bacon and eggs used in this recipe are from a source which allows its animals to roam and live a natural life outdoors, rather than on a conventional factory feedlot. This results in a healthier animal which means better quality meat.
Give this recipe a try and let me know it goes for you!
