Good morning! What’s for breakfast? If you are at my house, chances are good it’s some kind of an AIP breakfast hash. Frequently it’s a combination of leftovers and other odds and ends that I want to use up, but I do have a few favorite “recipes” that mostly exist in my head… until now!
Today I am sharing the combination that I fondly call “sunrise hash” – not just because I love eating it while watching the morning sky get brighter, but also because the vibrant colors and flavors remind me of a perfect sunrise over a green summer horizon. As I type this, it is mid-January and we just had our first significant snow of the season, so I’m particularly enjoying fantasizing about that!
About AIP breakfast hash ingredients
You could make this breakfast hash with any ground meat you choose. I encourage all of my clients to use the best quality meat they can get and ground grass fed beef is what gets you the most nutritional “bang” for your dollar, so that what’s I featured here. Learn more about why grass fed beef is such a powerful food for healing here. If you are new to eating grass fed beef, you may notice that the flavor is different than the conventionally raised beef you are used to eating. Over time you will come to think of this as the “normal” flavor of beef, but if the adjustment is tough for you, a recipe like this with lots of vibrant flavors will help.
I used a combination of white and orange sweet potatoes because I was going for a pretty combination of colors, but feel free to use all of one or the other if preference or availability require it. You could even use purple sweet potatoes if you wanted! In a recipe like this the total amount is also not very important – I made it with 2 average sized sweet potatoes that filled about 3 cups total after I cubed them, but less or more would also be fine.
TIP: You can peel and cube your sweet potatoes ahead of time to make this preparation even faster! Sometimes I spend an hour or so on Sunday preparing vegetables for the meals I plan to make later in the week.
Usually recipes using kale will direct you to remove the leaves from the stem, but I like the way the stems add a texture variety to this dish, so I suggest just chopping them with the leaves unless yours are particularly tough.
