Got a craving for hash browns to go with your eggs in the morning? Why not make your own, and kick the flavor up a notch with these sweet potato bacon cakes! The potatoes are cooked first to bring out their natural sweetness, and then mixed with just a few ingredients – onions for a slightly crunchy counterpoint, bacon for that irresistible flavor, and an egg to bind everything together. A few minutes to crisp up in the pan, and they’re done!
1 lb sweet potatoes, quartered;
4 slices of bacon, chopped;
3 green onions, sliced thinly;
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper;
Paleo cooking fat
Place the sweet potatoes in a large saucepan. Add cold water to cover, and bring to a boil; then lower the heat and let simmer until the potatoes are fork tender, about 5 to 8 minutes.
In the mean time, fry the bacon in a skillet placed over medium-high heat until crispy. Set aside.
Smash the potatoes in a large bowl. Shred and add the cooked bacon as well as the onions and egg. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Form four patties using the sweet potato mixture.
In a large skillet placed over a medium-high heat, melt some cooking fat and fry the potato cakes until the outsides are golden and the insides are heated through, about 4 minutes per side. (1)
