I’m not kidding when I say that I am literally eating this Maple Bacon Sweet Potato Hash as I write this post and recipe up to share with everyone! It is so good, it’s downright addicting! I mean it is 8:24am and neither of the kids are up so it’s the perfect time for me to write and eat breakfast. Once they are up and going, all ability to concentrate goes out the window and I tend to forget to feed myself as their needs take over. But the real reason I’m shoveling this down my face other than it’s delicious? I don’t want to share.
Okay, now I’m just kidding. This recipe makes plenty enough for about 4 people and I’m not that stingy. My 8-year-old, Jaxon, always complains when I make sweet potatoes. Always. Even if he’s tried a sweet potato recipe before and loved it, the very next time I make it, he complains all over again. Never fails. Except with this.
Maybe it’s the almost 50/50 sweet potato/bacon ratio? Maybe it’s the cinnamon and sweetness of the maple syrup? Maybe it’s just the whole combination, but whatever it is, he loves it! And yes, there is plenty left warming on the stove for him when he gets up.
Let’s get into it, shall we? This recipe has a grand total of four ingredients! The hardest part is trying to dice your sweet potatoes into evenly sized pieces so that they all cook at the same rate and you don’t end up with some mushy potato pieces and some hard ones. I despise a hard potato!
I use a full pound of bacon for this recipe, but it’s likely that a piece or two is missing by the time it gets mixed back into the potatoes! Oops!
This Maple Bacon Sweet Potato Hash is so versatile! We are having it alongside scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast this morning. It’s the perfect Brunch recipe and even goes great as a side dish to chicken or more pork! If you haven’t heard, pork-on-pork is a thing people! A delicious thing!
Well, I just heard the pitter patter of little feet, which is really more like stomping, doors banging, and finally, now the baby’s crying! But the recipe is written, my belly is full, and I’m off to start the day! If you decide to try this Maple Bacon Sweet Potato Hash recipe be sure to let me know what you think!
