Sweet potato, Bacon and Kale Scramble (Paleo with simple AIP option)

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I have to admit that I am more of a morning person than a night owl. Some mornings are just awesome. This is one of my favorite breakfasts! We often don't think of breakfast as an opportunity to get in some dark leafy greens, but with this scramble the kale adds the perfect amount of crispy.  

2 sweet potatos

1 package of uncured bacon

1 bunch of kale

2 TBSP olive oil

1-2 eggs, prepared to your liking (pictured is over medium)  

Wash and remove the stem from the kale, then cut into 2-inch pieces. Set aside. 

Dice your sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch cubes.

Heat the olive oil in a stovetop pan. Add the sweet potatoes and cook over medium heat. 

Dice the bacon and place it in another pan to cook over medium heat as well, for about 10 minutes. (Or you cook the sweet potatoes in the bacon fat after the bacon is done cooking if you have time). 

When both are done cooking, combine the bacon and the sweet potatoes.

Next, add in the kale and place the lid on top. Cook for another 5 minutes. Then remove the lid and cook for another 10 min.

While the final mixture is cooking prepare your egg to your liking. I prepared my egg cooked in the bacon fat for about 4-5 minutes, until over medium. 

When it is all done, add to a plate and ENJOY! 

(To make this recipe AIP, simply omit the egg. You can substitue another AIP friendly meat such as ground pork in its place.)
