Ground Beef and Sweet Potato Hash

This Whole 30 approved and Gluten-Free Ground Beef and Sweet Potato hash is one of our favorite breakfasts, especially during the week. I like prepping a big batch of it at the beginning of the week, and it makes for the easiest breakfasts or lunches. You can eat it as is or pair with avocado, eggs, salsa, or cauliflower rice. Alessandro absolutely loves it. It’s super quick and easy to throw together, and not to mention healthy.

Ground Beef and Sweet Potato Hash

This recipe is all made in my cast iron skillet, however, I sometimes roast the sweet potatoes and cook up my ground beef and peppers separately then combine it all at the end. Completely up to you! I hope you enjoy!!!
