stuff you need
  1. 4 potatoes (we used sweet potato and white potato)
  2. 500g (1 lbs.) pork mince or preferred mince
  3. 3 rashers bacon, diced and cooked crispy
  4. 2 shallots (scallions) sliced
  5. 1 cup button mushrooms sliced
  6. 4 tbs. ghee or butter (optional)
  7. 2 tbs. macadamia oil
  8. 1 tsp. paprika
  9. 1 tsp. chilli flakes
  10. 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  11. salt and pepper
Now what
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Wash the potatoes then slice them thinly, leaving them connected at the base (do this carefully, as it's easy to slice right through... and you want your tatoes to look cool!).
  3. Place the potatoes on to the prepared baking tray and drizzle the potatoes with macadamia oil.
  4. Place in to the oven for 45 minutes or until soft under the skin.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large fry pan on medium heat, cook the pork with the paprika, chilli flakes, turmeric, salt and pepper until brown.
  6. Add the mushrooms and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  7. When the potatoes are finished, take out of the oven and allow 5 mins to cool.
  8. Add 1 tbs. of butter to each potato.
  9. Spoon in ground pork and garnish with bacon and scallions. Enjoy!

    Hi Karen! We go for organic, nitrate free, sugar free bacon where possible BUT we do not get upset about eating free range nitrate bacon every now and again. It’s actually been ‘de-bunked’ by Robb Wolf however we still believe the less ‘weird stuff’ the better… haha.

    Hehe we know super confusing right. Since first starting paleo we’ve come to the point where we need to start listening to our bodies. So we definitely don’t include white potato or even sweet potato in to our diets regularly. This is because they are super Carby and we don’t do HEAPS of exercise to require the carbs. So if you exercise lots or just feel like white potato we say HELL yeh go ahead! Xoxoxo

  4. Hi Girls, just LOVE all your recipes and looking forward to more sweetener free ones. Checked out Bob’s Not-So-Fast-Food website. Such a fabulous idea…taking wholesome, free ranged, wild sourced food to the people!! Someone should do this in Oz and soon! It would give the fast food joints a run for their money. Anyway, clicked on all the links to download Bob’s bacon filled ebook and *waaaaah*…the page is no longer available. Is there a new link you could post so we may access the recipes. I’m so hungry for bacon choc chip cookies…
