Gussied up Viking Hash

The original Viking Hash is a couple pounds of bacon fried up with some onions and grated yams. My version is a little less taxing on the heart but just as delicious, plus there are many more vegetables to balance out all the delicious cured pork goodness.

Sorry about the photo, my red plates sometimes don't do the food justice.


1 med Yam shredded on the cheese grater (skin and all)
5 strips bacon
1/4 C diced onion
3/4C diced peppers (i’ve got red and yellow going on in the picture)
5 mushrooms sliced
big handful of spinach
dash cinnamon



Dice up your bacon pretty small and fry it off with the onion, you shouldn’t need anymore grease but if you are choosing a ‘lean’ cut of bacon add a touch of coconut oil to help things along. Add the peppers and mushrooms and cook slightly before adding the shredded yam. Resist stirring too much so that the yam has a chance to brown on the bottom and flip your mix with a spatula. Season to taste, don’t forget the cinnamon, there is nothing like yams and cinnamon together!!! When almost done add the spinach and let it wilt before serving. I put a couple of poached eggs on the top of this but if you don’t need the protein it is perfectly delicious without. ENJOY!!!

About the Recipes

All the recipes you see on my site are made up by me, unless otherwise stated. I love to experiment in the kitchen and as you can see my photo's are not all fancy, they are usually taken with my phone just as I am about to dish up. These are real tried and true recipes that work, if they didn't I wouldn't post it. I hope you enjoy my cooking as much as I do.
