AIP Hash: Sweet-Potato & Pork

First hash I tried.  It’s quite different than my standard breakfast, but delicious.  Once I’m eating eggs again, I can’t wait to try it with a fried egg on top.

  • 2 Tbsp bacon fat
  • 3 sweet potatoes, about 1 pound each
  • 3 tsp minced garlic
  • 3 C sliced celery
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 1-1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp fresh sage (or 3/4 tsp dried)
  • 3/4 tsp fresh thyme (or 1/4 tsp dried)
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1-1/2 pounds spinach

Peel the sweet potatoes, then put them through the french-fry blade of a mandolin (or just cube them if you don’t have a mandolin). This should make about 9 cups of cubes.

Heat a skillet, then add the bacon fat. Add garlic and sweet potato to the skillet and cook, stirring, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, slice the celery.  Add sliced celery to the pan and cook, stirring, another 5 minutes.  When done, set aside in a very large bowl (thats-a-bowl).

While celery & sweet potatoes are cooking, powder herbs all together.  Mix herbs and salt into the ground pork.

Brown the pork. When done, add the spinach and cook about 2 minutes, until spinach starts to wilt.  Stir this mixture into the sweet potatoes.  Divide into 8 servings.
