Beef and Sweet Potato Casserole in the Slow Cooker

on August 2, 2012

I’ve seen recipes similar to this posted on several other sites, so I thought I’d try one myself!  Here’s what I did:


  • 7 small sweet potatoes
  • 2 lbs grass-fed ground beef
  • 2 red onions
  • 8 eggs
  • 10 oz bacon
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp oregano

Peel sweet potatoes then microwave them for ~3 minutes.  Slice them into 1/4″ rounds.  Dice bacon and fry in a large frying pan until crispy.  Remove bacon pieces and save for later.  Cook beef, onions, and seasonings in same skillet until fully browned.   Grease slow cooker with some coconut oil.  Place a layer of sweet potatoes on bottom and top with some of the meat mixture, then some bacon.  Repeat until all ingredients are in slow cooker.  Beat eggs in medium bowl and pour on top of casserole.  Cook on low for ~6 hours.  Let cool or put in refrigerator over night to set.  Enjoy!

This is a great dish, we really enjoyed it and it made a ton, so we ate leftovers for awhile, too!  The next time I make this I would definitely spice it up a bit more (we thought it was on the bland side)… I would add some salt and some spicy red pepper probably!
