Paleo Sweet Potato Hash Breakfast Bowl (Whole30)
This Paleo Sweet Potato Hash Breakfast Bowl a.k.a. My Favorite Whole30 Breakfast has only 5 ingredients, but is loaded with flavor! Easy, delicious, and healthy! Whole30, gluten free, dairy free, and a great way to start the day!
The Whole30 recipe testing has begun!! I have tossed around the idea of completing a Whole30 from time to time, but I kind of just sporadically decided to take the plunge on June 4th. Honestly, my sugar cravings were out of control and although I was eating healthy main meals; I was also eating way too many sweets. Most of these were supposedly healthier sweet treats – Halo Top, Lenny and Larry protein cookies, and so on.
I’ve managed to stick to the Whole30 for 8 complete days. For someone that eats a fairly healthy diet, most days, with a few too many splurges here and there, as of late, this way of eating hasn’t been that difficult. Yes, I DO miss my protein waffles. I also REALLY miss stevia in my coffee and tea, but other than that it’s been smooth sailing.
Finding meals that I loved before the Whole30 and converting them to Whole30 compliant has been the best. I found this recipe, already on my blog, was easily Whole30 compliant. With just a switch of bacon types, I easily made this recipe work. Most bacon contains added sugar and on Whole30, that’s a big no-no. I was able to find one of the few compliant brands, Pederson’s Farms at my local Whole Foods. Plus, adding real bacon instead of turkey bacon tastes better too!
Some other Whole30 compliant products I’ve been loving are ghee and fun Trader Joe’s seasonings. Not only are the ghee and seasonings so tasty with this hash, but these products are awesome with many other recipes too. I literally put the seasonings on everything from salads to roasted veggies to chicken.

This breakfast hash is my new favorite! I make up a batch on Sundays and then have a delicious breakfast ready to go throughout the week. It’s:
Savory – sweet
Loaded with veggie goodness
& Super satisfying
This would make the perfect lazy weekend breakfast or brunch. If you’re vegetarian, simply leave the bacon out. There’s plenty of yumminess going on, you won’t even miss it!

A hearty, 5-ingredient breakfast hash with sweet potato, brussels sprouts, and apple! A protein- and fiber-packed meal.
- 3 slices uncured turkey bacon or regular bacon (for Whole30 Compliant, I used Pederson's brand)
- 1 small (108g) diced onion
- 1 sweet potato (208g) cut into ½-inch cubes
- 2 garlic cloves , minced
- 2 cups (339g) brussels sprouts, stems removed and quartered
- 1 apple (118g) diced
- Optional: eggs , egg whites or a combination of the two*
- salt + pepper to taste
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add bacon. Cook until desired doneness, then remove from pan to plate lined with a paper towel. When cooled, crumble bacon and set aside.
Reserve about 2 tablespoons bacon grease in pan and add onion and sweet potato to the skillet and toss to coat. If using turkey bacon, you'll need to spray skillet with cooking spray or add olive or coconut oil as needed.
Cook until sweet potato has softened, about 10 minutes, then stir in garlic, brussels sprouts and apple and cook for about 10-15 mins longer and until mixture is soft and caramely. Stir crumbled bacon into the mixture.
In the meantime, poach, fry or scramble eggs, cooking until desired doneness. Serve immediately and enjoy!
*I used 1 cup egg whites, scrambled, for the bowl pictured.
