An AIP Breakfast Hash Stack

What a mouthful! Let’s take another crack at breakfast (not an egg pun, since eggs aren’t allowed on AIP). This stack has three layers, let’s get started!

( See my post Lets talk about… the Auto Immune Protocol Diet and My Recipe Formats for questions about my recipes.)

  1. Sweet Potato Hash Browns
  • 4 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and grated, keep soaking in a salted water so they don’t turn brown
  • 1/4 t Cinnamon
  • 1/4 t Ginger
  • 1/4 t Turmeric
  • 1/4 t garlic powder
  • 1/4 t Pepper
  • 1 t Pink Salt
  • 1/4 C of Tapioca Starch
  1. Drain and dry your sweet potatoes really well.
  2. Toss them in all of the seasonings and the tapioca.
  3. Heat a quarter inch of the oil of your choice in a pre-heated cast iron skillet.
  4. Hash browns by taking a metal ring mold and placing it in the oil, fill the ring mold with a layer of the potato mixture and let it for about 10 seconds, then lift the ring mold off. Repeat until the pan is full but not over crowded.
  5. Let the hash browns cook until a golden brown crust has formed, about 2 minutes per side. Try to only flip the once.
  6. Keep the hash browns crispy until serving by keeping them on a rack lined sheet pan in the oven on low.


To make a sweet and savory component add a fourth of a cup of golden raisins. If you are allowed, add 1/4 t of smoked paprika, chili powder, coriander, and cumin.

2. Sausage 

  • 1 Lb of Ground Pork
  • 2 t Garlic Powder
  • 2 t  Pink Salt
  • 1 t Pepper
  • 1 t Onion Powder
  • 1 t Marjoram
  • 1 t sage
  1. Mix the ground pork with all of the seasonings, add a fourth of a cup of ice cold water and mix until the sausage is sticky and emulsified. Pat out into 3 oz patties and fry in a preheated oiled cast iron skilled.

3. Avocado and Grapefruit Salsa 

  • 2 Avocados, cubed
  • 2 Grapefruits, supremed
  • 1 Lime, zested and juiced
  • 1 T Fresh Oregano, chopped
  • Pink Salt- to taste
  • Fresh Cracked Pepper – To taste
  1. Mix all of the ingredients together, breaking up the avocado sightly so that the salsa is creamy.

Lets Bring it All Together:

Plate the hash brown first. Top with the sausage patty. Then garnish with the salsa on the very top and sprinkle with a little more fresh oregano and a lime wedge.


Wishing you good eats!
