Curried Sweet Potato Hash

This recipe makes 4 servings at roughly a half of cup each.  I made it on a Sunday so I could have it for breakfast all week.  I've been enjoying this sweet and spicy delight with 2 eggs, a piece of Sesame Ezekiel toast, and a cup of coffee after crossfit :) and before work :(.

Curried Sweet Potato Hash
Time: 20-25 minutes
Servings: roughly 4

1 large sweet potato
1/2 large yellow onion, diced
3 slices bacon, cooked well and crumbled
2 tbsp green onion
2 tbsp cilantro
1 tbsp paprika
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp coriander
1 tsp salt


1.  First, peel and dice your sweet potato.  
2.  After the sweet potato is diced place into a pot of boiling water for 7-8 minutes, depending on your diced potato size.  They should just be a little soft.
3.  While your sweet potato is boiling cook 3 slices of bacon in a large skillet.
4.  When crispy remove from pan, allow to dry out on a paper towel, and crumble when cooled.  Keep the heat on medium, to medium high.  
5. Drain sweet potatoes and place directly into the pan with the bacon grease.
6. Mix in your diced onion.
7.  Mix in your spices, excluding green onion and cilantro.
8.  Put the mixture in the pan in one even layer.  Allow to cook, untouched, for 5-7 minutes until a nice crispy crust is forming underneath.
9.  Repeat on second side.
10.  To serve, garnish with cilantro, green onion, and crumbled bacon.  (If you like it a little spicer,  add red pepper flakes!)

Serve, or allow to cool and refrigerate in a seal-able container
