  • 4 slices bacon cut into 1/2-inch thick pieces
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and diced into 1/2-inch cubes (approx 4 cups cubes)
  • 2 cups kale leaves roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 green onion sliced


  • Heat a large saute pan on medium heat. Add the bacon and saute until golden and crispy. Use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon to a paper towel or small bowl.
  • Add the diced onion and red bell pepper to the pan and saute for one minute to soften.
  • Add the diced sweet potato and spices to the pan. Cook the sweet potato for 10-12 minutes, stirring often. Place a lid on the pan for the last 5 minutes to soften the sweet potato until fork tender.
  • Add the bacon back into the pan along with the kale and stir for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the kale is wilted.
  • Use a spatula to create 4 wells in the hash. Crack an egg into each well and cook until the eggs are done to your liking. You can add a lid to the pan to cook the eggs through faster.
  • Remove the breakfast hash from the heat. Season with salt and pepper and top with sliced green onion. Serve immediately.


  • My favorite pan to use when cooking this recipe is a Staub cast iron pan, as it cooks evenly and retains the heat.
