Broccoli Bacon Parsnip Hash

Broccoli Bacon Parsnip Hash

Finding egg-free breakfast ideas is a common theme I hear as a transformational nutrition coach.  Either becuase people get sick of eggs or they are suspecting an egg allergy. My go-to solution is always a good ‘hash’ recipe, like this Broccoli Bacon Parsnip Hash! A ‘hash’ is basically just a one-pan dish of cooked meat, often bacon or sausage, and vegetables. They are simple, nutrient-dense, and egg-free!

This Broccoli Bacon Parsnip Hash is great for breakfast and has a subtle sweetness to it, thanks to the green apple and white sweet potato. I love the addition of garlic to balance the sweet and salty flavors. 

I’m a big fan of making a large hash like this and putting it into individual glass serving containers to heat up on another day for a quick meal. It’s the perfect solution for a quick morning meal or a portable lunch!

(AIP, Paleo, Whole30, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free)

Prep time: 10 minutes          Cook time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 1-2 Tbsp Bacon Fat from Nitrate-Free Bacon*
  • 2 large Parsnips
  • 1 medium White Sweet Potato 
  • 10 oz of Uncured Nitrate-Free Bacon (8-10 strips)
  • 1 large head of Organic Broccoli
  • 1 Oragnic Green Apple
  • 1/2 tsp Organic Garlic Powder (or 2 fresh cloves Garlic, finely minced)
  • Real Salt, to taste
*If you don’t have bacon fat or pork lard on hand you can substitue organic coconut oil


  • Use a large skillet with a lid to prepare this recipe all in one pan
  • Heat the large skillet over medium-low heat and melt the bacon fat in the pan
  • While the skillet is heating, chop the parsnips and sweet potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Then add the parsnips and sweet potatoes to the skillet and coat in the bacon fat. Cover and allow to cook for about 7-10 minutes, stirring occassionally so they brown evenly.
  • Chop the bacon into lardons (1/2″ thick pieces)
  • Chop the broccoli into bite-sized pieces
  • Once the parsnips and sweet potatoes have started to brown and soften, add the bacon and broccoli to the skillet. Stir well. If it starts to stick, add a little water to the pan. Cover and allow to cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the broccoli starts to become a little tender.
  • Chop the green apple into bite-sized pieces
  • When the broccoli is almost fork tender, add the apple to the pan with the garlic powder and the real salt to taste. Continue to cook, uncovered, while stirring regularly for another 3-5 minutes, or until everything is tender enough to your liking.
  • Remove from the heat and serve.
  • This Broccoli Bacon Parsnip Hash also makes excellent leftovers and it can be augmented with avocado slices or a fried egg!
