bison-hashBison Sweet Potato Hash
(adaptation of Caveman Cooking recipe)

Ingredients
  • 2 TBSP coconut oil
  • 1/2  cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (I love Trader Joe’s frozen garlic cubes)
  • 1/2 lb grass fed bison
  • 2 cups shredded sweet potato
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 TBSP Flavor God Everything (or Everything Spicy if you want a little extra kick)
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese crumbles
  • 1 avocado

Instructions

  1. Turn your ovens broiler on high.
  2. Preheat a 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat and place your coconut oil in the pan.
  3. Add your diced onion to the pan and stir for about 3 minutes until they start to get soft.
  4. Add in your peppers and garlic and continually stir for 1 minute.
  5. Add in your ground bison until barely browned, do not overcook (it denatures the meat).
  6. Add your sweet potato and saute, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes until your sweet potatoes soften.
  7. Add your spinach to the pan and stir often until your spinach starts to wilt which should take 2 minutes.
  8. Make 4 small wells around your mixture and crack an egg in each well.
  9. Place your pan six inches under your broiler and cook to your liking (2 minutes should get you really runny yolks, 3 minutes will almost be a solid yolk and 4 minutes will be a hard yolk).
  10. Remove from the oven and serve right from the pan and enjoy!
