But truly this is one of those meals that’s not just intended to be for breakfast.

This hash is good any time of day. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. And I’m loving every last ingredient!

You can’t go wrong with this combination. You get a blend of the natural sweetness from the sweet potatoes, the saltiness and crispness of the bacon, the tender earthy kale, and those oh so delicious and creamy avocados.

I’ve been buying and eating sweet potatoes like crazy lately so I’m happy to have another perfect use for them.

And sure bacon may not be a very health ingredient but I feel totally fine having 2 slices in my serving when I’m eating 3 other perfectly healthy ingredients.

All good things in moderation right?

Because bacon makes everything better! I’m slightly addicted. It works magic on any dish in my opinion and this hash most definitely wouldn’t be the same with out it.

Make it soon, you won’t regret it!

  • Mary: I make a veggie scramble every morning that is similar to this. In a skillet I brown sliced mushrooms, very small broccoli florets, onion, and chopped spinach. After those are cooked I add 1 egg and 2 or 3 egg whites (or all egg whites sometimes). After the eggs are cooked I toss in all ready cooked small cubes of sweet potato to warm them. Plate the mixture and top with chopped avocado and tomatoes (or salsa). So good! September 25, 2017 at 2:50pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Sounds delish! September 25, 2017 at 10:42pm Reply

  • Pv: How can I make this vegetarian and still flavorful? Love all the ingredients but the bacon….just omit the bacon or should I replace with something? September 18, 2017 at 3:59pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I saw vegan bacon at the store the other day, I’ve never tried it but you could give that a try. Or you could use a richly flavored ingredient like mushrooms. September 21, 2017 at 11:19am Reply
