Recipe: Warm Bacon Sweet Potato Salad

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I came across a recipe for Warm Potato Bacon Salad that is not paleo and had a sauce over it that didn't sound all that pleasing to my tastebuds, so I adjusted it to fit my needs. 

2-3 sweet potatoes or yams depending on size; cut into cubes  (about 4 cups)
6+ pieces of bacon, cut into pieces
1 red (or yellow) onion, chopped
4-8 cloves garlic, minced
4 green onion
olive oil
salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 375. 
2. On a baking sheet, toss the potatoes with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 25 minutes or until tip of knife pierces potato easily.
3. While potatoes are cooking, heat a skillet on medium heat. Add the bacon and cook for 2 minutes. Then add in the garlic and the red onion. Saute for an additional 3 minutes until the bacon is crisp.
4. Mix potatoes with bacon mixture
5. Add green onion and toss gently
6. Serve

Here's a version I did today to get some greens into it.

2-3 sweet potatoes or yams depending on size; cut into cubes  (about 4 cups)
6+ pieces of bacon, cut into pieces
1 red (or yellow) onion, chopped
4-8 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups kale, chopped
2 TBSP fresh italian parsley, chopped
4 green onion
1/4 - 1/3 cup bone broth (preferably homemade - any kind works)
olive oil
salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 375. 
2. On a baking sheet, toss the potatoes with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 25 minutes or until tip of knife pierces potato easily.
3. While potatoes are cooking, heat a skillet on medium heat. Add the bacon and cook for 2 minutes. Then add in the garlic, the onion, kale and parsley. Saute for an additional 3 minutes adding bone broth 1 TBSP at a time until the desired wiltyness of the kale is reach.
4. Mix potatoes with bacon mixture
5. Add green onion and toss gently
6. Serve

 

 

This has become a big favorite of mine right now. It's so good, and so easy to change up depending on your mood or what's in your fridge.

We did one that had red wine vinegar in the recipe somewhere. Was that this one? I thought so but I could be having brain fog. Either way, I intend to try this version as well. The last one we made was quite yummy!

Tiffany: Yes, it's the same one, but I left the dressing part out since I don't use it. I'm not the biggest fan of mustard.

 

Here's the amounts for that for those that might want to try it.

 

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon grainy mustard

 

Mix together in a bowl and toss all cooked ingredients into it gently before serving.

I don't like mustard either (in fact, I hate it) but will use mustard powder in oil and vinegar dressing to thicken it a bit.  For some reason, you don't even taste the mustard if its powder.

That is a great idea! I'm going to have to give it a try.

Interesting. I might have to give that a try.
