Made Sweet Potato, Bacon & Egg Salad

 More Paleo creativity and blind trust.  The boiled eggs and dill threw me on this one...
As I was cooking this up in the kitchen I kept telling B to have low expectations and I had no idea what this was going to taste like.  I threw out our favorite, local restaurant as Plan B.  To both of our surprise it is one of our FAVORITE PALEO meals to date.

1 small to medium sweet potato, diced
2 eggs
8 slices of bacon, diced
1 tbs. coconut oil
4 tbsp. dill, finely chopped
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. lemon juice

Place eggs in small saucepan, cover with cold water, cover pan and place on high heat until just before boiling.  Remove from heat and let sit covered for 13 minutes.  Immediately rinse in cold water, peel and slice eggs and set aside.

Meanwhile, dice sweet potato.  Heat skillet over medium-heat.  When hot, add bacon and cook for 5 minutes.  Add diced sweet potato and continue to cook until potato is tender and bacon is fully cooked. 

 In a small bowl, mix dill, mayonnaise and lemon juice.  

Add eggs, sweet potato and bacon, and mix.  Serve warm or cold. 

This makes just enough for two people with a little left over to snack on.  You won't be disappointed!!
