Sweet Potato, Bacon and Apple Hash!

Shopping List

2 garnet yams, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice 
EVOO or Coconut Oil
4 to 6 slices thick cut bacon, cut into small cubes
1 large onion, cut in 1/2-inch dice
2 Granny Smith Apples or Gala Apples  cored and cut into 1/2-inch dice
Cost ~$8
Recommendation: Make double the recipe


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, add the sweet potatoes, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, to taste. Toss to coat and arrange them on a baking sheet or large pan. Roast the yams for about 10 to 15 minutes or until soft. Remove from the oven and reserve.

Coat a large saute pan with olive oil. Add the bacon and put the pan over medium heat. When the bacon has started to get crispy and brown, add the onions, season with salt and saute until the onions translucent. Add the apples saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the yams, and saute until the yams are cooked through, about 7 to 8 minutes.

This is pretty forgiving recipe. You can't really mess it up!

You could also add sausage.

This is a 3 block measurement


1 cup of hash is ~3 blocks (1/3 cup baked yams/sweet potatoes is 1 blk) If you eat a little extra it's ok.

Since the protein is not a significant amount per serving you will need to eat additional protein.


3 eggs = 3blks (mixes in great with the hash)

1.5 sausages = 3blks (mixes in great with the hash)


Sprinkle 2 crushed up pecans on top (~3blks of fat) or 9 slivered/crushed almonds
