Asparagus Potato Hash
Asparagus, white potatoes, and bacon combine to make an easy and delicious side dish that's paleo and Whole30, and is great for post-workout carbs.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
- 1/2 lb Bacon cut into 1/4" bits
- 3 cups Red or White Potatoes diced into 1/4" - 1/2" cubes
- 1/2 bundle Skinny Asparagus
- Sea Salt to taste
- Ground Black Pepper to taste
Snap the ends off the asparagus and discard, then cut into 1" pieces. Set aside.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. I prefer to use my CastLite pan, but a regular cast iron pan would be great.
Add the bacon pieces and cook until crispy, then remove with a slotted spoon to bowl and set aside. Leave the grease in the pan.
In the same skillet, add the diced potatoes. Reduce heat to medium. Stir to coat all the potatoes with the bacon fat. Let the potatoes sit for a few minutes, season with salt and pepper, and then stir. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are about 75% done.
Add the asparagus to the skillet and stir to combine with the potatoes. Continue cooking until potatoes are soft and asparagus is done (about 5-10 minutes).
Remove from heat and stir in the reserved bacon bits. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if desired. Serve hot.
This dish reheats great in a skillet and is actually best if you make it a day in advance (though it's not required).
