8 slice(s) bacon, diced
1/2 medium onion(s), yellow, diced
1 medium sweet potato(es), diced
1 medium zucchini, diced
1/3 pound(s) green beans, fresh, or about 8-10 beans
1 medium avocado(s)
1/8 teaspoon(s) black pepper, freshly ground, to taste


  1. Cook chopped bacon in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Drain fat when done and set bacon aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbs of drippings from the bacon pan, onion, and sweet potato.
  3. Stirring often, saute until onions begin to turn translucent and sweet potato softens slightly (about 10-15 minutes).
  4. Add zucchini and green beans to the sweet potato mixture and cook just until they turn bright green.
  5. Combine bacon and vegetables. Season with freshly ground black pepper, and top with avocado to serve.

    Green beans are not a paleo approved food.

    Really, really delicious, but it took too long for a weekday — even with all the veggies pre-chopped. Next time, I’ll pre-cook the bacon, too.

    Wow! Really good and my 3 and 2 year old loved it.

    Im confused on all these recipes because it doesnt say how much is a serving. Are all these meals usually 1 cup for a serving?? HELP!!!!!

    I didn’t think potatoes were a paleo approved food?

  6. Anonymous

    sweet potatoes are paleo approved

    Yum! I had to leave out the green beans because apparently they are an allergen for me. Also, I didn’t have any avocado, so I skipped that, too…LOL This was still really, really yummy…

    What would be a good substitute for green beans for me? I noticed a few recipes this week call for them.

    • Neely Quinn

      zaphron – Really just any hearty green veggie like broccoli, kale, or can you do snap peas?

    Yummy yummy for my tummy!!!! This was amazing :)) I would also agree with Saltshrimp, it was a little time consuming for a weekday breakfast, but I will absolutely try it again on a day off or week end. The boyfriend even liked it, only difference was he had his with two eggs. The only things I added was chopped garlic and chili powder to taste. Everything was awesome!

    Love this– Question. What’ s the difference in sweet potatoes and yams?

  10. Barbars

    Delicious. Really didn’t think husband would like it, but he loved it.

  11. Loren

    I’m obsessed with this recipe. It is soooooo good and sooooo filling! Trying it with turkey bacon this week :)

  12. Jennifer

    What can I substitute for sweet potatoes? Really not a fan…. :\

    • Neely

      Jennifer – Any sort of squash will do. Or leave them out and eat a piece of fruit instead :)

    Sounds really yummy! But I read it takes awhile can this me made the night before?

    • Molly

      Hi tiffany d – You can make this the night before, but the green beans and sweet potato might discolor a bit. If you don’t mind that slight discoloration, go for it! Just be sure to wait to cut the avocado for the top until right before serving (it will oxidize and turn brown).

    Are the calories correct for this meal? I come out with around 782 with this recipe as is, 520 with half the amount of bacon per serving, and 470 with half the amount of bacon and half the amount of avocado per serving. What type of bacon are you using?
