Sweet Potato, Bacon & Apple Hash (Whole30, Day 24)

I'm shamelessly back-dating this post as I divided yesterday between two exhausting pediatrician appointments...

Luckily I was well-fueled thanks to a hearty breakfast. I had picked up 2 bags of sweet potatoes at Trader Joe's and needed the use the second one up. I whipped up something that would please both me and the kids; I do think a little spice added would really make this hash pop, but I just seasoned my portion aggressively once on my plate.

Sweet Potato, Bacon & Apple Breakfast Hash

4 medium sweet potatoes, peel and diced
6 strips nitrite-free bacon, diced
1-2 apples (depending on size), cored & diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. allspice (could sub cinnamon, I would use a little less)
couple of drops of sriracha sauce
salt & pepper, to taste

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, add a little salt and cook for 8 minutes, until just starting to soften.

Meanwhile heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook for a couple of minutes until beginning to crisp. Add onion and apples, stirring to combine. Cook for another 5 minutes, until onion and apple begin to soften.

Your sweet potatoes should be ready to transfer at this point. Remove them from the pot with a slotted spoon, adding them to your skillet. Toss to combine and cook for at least 5 minutes more, until potatoes are cooked to your liking. I probably cooked mine for about 10 minutes more, so they started to brown up a bit.

Season to taste with paprika, allspice, sriracha, salt and pepper.

Today's menu:
breakfast - 3 scrambled eggs topped with diced jalapeno, sweet potato hash
lunch - Trader Joe's Vegetable Panang Curry soup (only non-Whole30 ingredient were pieces of corn)
snack- handful of carrot cake granola with berries
dinner - some pork sauteed with apple and vegetables that I used to make spring rolls for my kids
