Paleo Turkey Sweet Potato Hash

Let me just say you have GOT to make this with your leftover Thanksgiving turkey.  It is beyond delicious.  I mean really, you can't go wrong with ingredients like bacon, turkey, garlic, and sweet potatoes. Plus, it's super easy, allowing you to get dinner on the table in about 20 minutes.

You start off by sautéing the bacon.  Now, how could any dish that begins this way not be utterly delicious?

Once the bacon fat starts to render, add the onion, garlic and sweet potatoes.  These need to cook for 3-4 minutes until the onions turn translucent.

Chop up a good amount of leftover turkey.  Be sure to include both dark and light meat.:

Add the turkey and spinach to the pan and stir to combine.

Once the turkey is warmed and the spinach is wilted, it's ready to serve.  Believe me, you will be going back for seconds!
