So I made this today w/ some changes to the original recipe. Brian's recipe calls for the hash to be scooped into cups made out of pancetta bacon. I omitted the bacon cups and just made the hash instead. OMG, sooooooooooo good!!! The only changes I really had to make was using turkey bacon instead of regular bacon. I also just cooked my bacon in the microwave and used olive oil instead of the bacon grease to cook with.
Bacon Cups with Sweet Potato Hash
* 4 strips turkey bacon
* 1 large sweet potato, small diced
* 4 stalks celery, diced
* 1 small yellow onion, diced
* 2 cloves garlic, chopped
* 1 teaspoon paprika
* 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
* Salt and freshly ground pepper
In a large skillet over medium heat brown the bacon. Remove the bacon from the skillet and place on a plate lined with a paper towel. In the skillet with the bacon fat, add potatoes, celery, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, paprika and season with salt and pepper. Saute over medium heat, stirring frequently, until potatoes are tender (about 15 minutes). Crumble in cooked bacon and stir to combine.
