Paleo Bacon Sweet Potato Parsnip Hash


This was kid approved!  I am diligently NOT packing at the moment and am looking for any and all excuses to avoid it.  I made this for breakfast and it was a big hit.  My husband ate his with some sriracha, but I thought it was awesome all by itself . It is a great combination of sweet and savory together.  This might be great with some eggs for Thanksgiving breakfast or even on its own as a side dish.


  • 1lb uncured bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces (my favorite is Trader Joe’s because it is so thick)
  • 2 large parsnips, peeled and chopped (about 1cm pieces)
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped (about 1cm pieces)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt (or test it and use what you would like to accommodate your tastes)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  • Cook the bacon in a skilled over medium-high heat until cooked to desired crispiness.  Remove onto a plate with paper towel.
  • Remove about 1/3 cup of the bacon fat from the pan (I take the excess and save it in the refrigerator for my use with cauliflower mash
  • Add the sweet potato and parsnip to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes.  Stir occasionally.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the onion and continue to saute for about 15 minutes or until the veggies are fork tender.
  • Add the bacon back to the pan and combine.  Cook for about a minute until everything is a uniform temperature.
  • Serve as a side dish or under eggs for a great breakfast.
