BB & Sweet Pot Breakfast

If you ask my husband, nothing can be better than beans & bacon. I have spoken of this before, so I am always finding new ways to improve on this simple dish.

Ingredients:
200g beans, I started with dry pinto beans and soaked them for 24 hours before I started the recipe, but any style will do, dry or canned.
200g bacon cut into small cubes
1 onion, quartered
1 garlic, whole
1 large sweet potato, cubed
olive oil
spices to taste: salt, black pepper, cumin, chili powder, paprika
Instructions:
 
  1. Place the beans, onion, garlic, and potatoes into a large pot and cover with water. Add any seasoning at this time except for the salt. That needs to be added later because it will cause the beans to not cook completely.
  2. ON medium heat, allow to cook and relax a bit. Each type of bean will have a different cook time, but if you soak them long enough ahead of time, none should take longer than an hour
  3. Once the beans are soft to the bite, drain and save the stock. Place the onion & garlic into a food processor along with a cup of stock and puree.
  4. Place puree back into beans and mix well.
  5. Fry up bacon and potatoes until desired crispiness, then combine everything together.
  6. Taste and add salt here. Adjust seasoning as needed and serve.
  7. Enjoy
