A Hippensteel Dinner Favorite!
Written By Heather Hippensteel
Meat-Sweet Potatoes-And-Eggs in a CrockPot!
My mom made this crockpot meal the last time I was at home and it is delicious! It’s an easy crockpot meal that can feed a group of people and makes great leftovers! When I made it for myself it lasted a few days and you get protein, carbs, and fat all in one dish!
1-2 lbs. ground turkey or ground beef
½-1 lb. sausage
4-5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
2 large onions, diced
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. paprika
salt & pepper to taste
Sautee onions and then brown beef and sausage in a fry pan. Microwave or boil sweet potatoes until they are soft enough to slice easily. Scramble eggs in a bowl and add garlic powder, paprika, salt/pepper.
Slice sweet potatoes and cover bottom of crockpot with one layer of sweet potatoes. Add layer of meat mixture then another layer of potatoes. Continue in this order until meat and potatoes are gone. Pour the egg mixture over the whole thing It will sink through the cracks.
Cook for 6-7 hours on low. Use a crockpot liner for easy cleanup.
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies (recipe taken from www.thebitesizedbaker.com and modified slightly)
These are my absolute favorite chocolate chip cookies that are a nice paleo-friendly treat every now and then
3 ¼ cup almond meal
2-3 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
½ cup honey ½ cup coconut oil, melted
1 ½ cups dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375.
Mix dry ingredients (almond meal, coconut flour, salt, baking soda) in a bowl and wet ingredients (eggs, vanilla, coconut oil, honey) in another bowl. I usually microwave the coconut oil for about 30sec and pour it into the mixture.
Combine dry and wet mixtures and then add chocolate chips. Spoon onto a baking sheet with a teaspoon. I usually put aluminum foil down and grease it with coconut oil.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. The tops will begin to turn golden brown. You might think they’re not done but the bottoms will burn if you keep them in longer. Let them cool once out of the oven and then they are ready to eat! Enjoy!
