Sweet Potato, Bacon & Egg Salad

Sweet Potato, Bacon & Egg Salad

Okay, so this is my new favorite dish and I wanted to share it with all of you! I found this recipe after my crash and burn attempt at deviled eggs. I tried to peel my hard-boiled eggs and they were unrecognizable after I finally got the shells off… crap… so I had to find a plan B for my hard-boiled egg remnants. I remembered I have been meaning to try this recipe on Paleo Plan that called for hard-boiled eggs… plus 2 of my favorite foods: Sweet Potatoes and Bacon. I ended up actually using twice as much bacon, 4 sweet potatoes and 8 eggs to make a bigger batch. I was using the dish for a party at our house. I was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful and versatile this dish is. It is a great option for breakfast, a snack, a potluck gathering… or whenever really. It’s great because it tastes good cold too and you can pack it up in a cooler and take it on a picnic! This recipe comes to us from our friends at Paleo Plan. Check out their site HERE for more recipes and information about other services they offer! Ingredients

  • 1 small to medium sweet potato, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 slices of bacon, diced
  • 4 Tbs dill, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs Paleo mayonnaise (Go HERE to see how to make this.)
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice

Instructions Place eggs in small sauce pan, cover with cold water, cover pan and place over high heat until just before boiling. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 13 minutes. Rinse in cold water, peel eggs, dice and set aside. Meanwhile, dice sweet potato. Heat skillet over medium-high. When hot, add bacon and cook for 5 minutes. Add diced sweet potato and continue to cook until potato is tender and bacon is fully cooked. In a small bowl, mix dill, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Add eggs, sweet potato and bacon, and mix. Serve warm or cold. Enjoy!

    I too am really bad at boiling eggs. You wonder how can this be so difficult. I recently bought the Egg Genie. It was well worth the 20 bucks I spent. You get perfect hard boiled eggs every single time. Thanks for your recipe idea I can’t wait to try.

    Thank you for this recipe. Try this to make boiled eggs easy to shell. For every 2 cups of water add 1 Tablespoon of salt.

    To peel eggs easily everytime: First bring enough water to boil to cover eggs. Then carefully lower eggs into boiling water. Return to boil and cook apporximately 8-10 minutes depending on how you like your eggs. Then drain and put in cold water. Peels easily everytime. The fresher the eggs the easier to peel. But I’ve done it both ways and it always works.

    Is this recipe for a single serving?

    Steaming eggs come out perfect every time and peel beautiful . I had decided to never do boiled eggs again until I found how steam worked.
