Life Without Six

Life without the "Top 6 Allergens" can be difficult. T offers recipes, product and restaurant reviews as well as shopping guides to take some of the bite out of grabbing a bite on a restrictive diet.

Recipe: T & D’s Sweet Potato Hash

photo(1)D is not a breakfast person.  T loves her pancakes and waffles and french toast, but D would rather wait for lunch.  That is… unless you add that mythical breakfast meat known as bacon.

When D was growing up, his father would make a special breakfast hash of crushed tater tots and cut up breakfast sausage.  It was one of the only breakfast foods that D liked as a child.  Hash is this wonderful, throw whatever meat you have in a pan type of foods.  One morning, when there was only enough bacon for one, D improvised this wonderfully calorie-riffic breakfast treat.


  • 1 Bag Frozen Sweet Potato Puffs
  • 1 Small Onion (Chopped) [Optional]
  • 3 Strips of Bacon (Chopped)
  • 1 Package of Pastrami (Chopped)

Take the sweet potato puffs and microwave them for two minutes to thaw them.  You could cook them in the pan, but that just adds to your cooking time.  In a large pan, or chicken fryer, throw the bacon in to help grease the pan.  Then add the onion and potatoes and begin to mash the potato puffs thoroughly.  Once the potatoes are broken up add the pastrami and mix.  The meats have enough salt and pepper that you shouldn’t need to add any more.  Cook this until crispy and serve.  (If you are looking to save time and don’t need all of the hash at once.  Take the amount you intend to serve and transfer it to a smaller pan.  This will help it crisp up faster.)

D’s Review: This is very VERY good.  This is also… VERY unhealthy.  It’s a great treat and can be served as a side dish for everything from breakfast to thanksgiving dinner.

T’s Review: Sweet potatoes are healthy and bacon is delicious.  Ignore D and say yes to the yummy hash!

Brynden: I hope mommy made that extra bacon for me!
