Sweet Potato Apple Hash

This recipe includes bacon so watch your salivary glands while reading. It may put them in overdrive. This is a very easy recipe to make and goes with a lot of meals. The hardest part (which isn’t hard at all ) is simply chopping all the ingredients. Then you just throw them in the pan. It’s so easy a caveman could do it. Sorry, I had to.

    Sweet potato apple hash is amazing and has become my go-to side dish to compliment eggs or pork (the apples make this an especially nice combination) and even as a stand-alone dish as a mid-morning snack!
    Even though I have already made it many times since first seeing your recipe, I was happy to see this post because of the pictures! I can already see at least one adjustment I need to make in my technique. Thank you and keep up the good work. I appreciate your efforts!
