easy sweet potato and bacon fritters


6 bacon strips, cut into 1/2" pieces

2 medium sweet potatoes (orange skin) peeled

3 scallions, chopped

2 eggs, whisked

3 Tbsp coconut flour

1 tsp paprika (or your seasoning of choice)

Salt & pepper to taste


1Fry bacon pieces, stirring to cook. Remove with slotted spoon and set on paper towels to drain. Leave bacon fat in pan

2Peel and grate sweet potatoes. Place the shredded raw sweet potatoes in a medium size mixing bowl

3Add fried bacon pieces, chopped scallions, 2 whisked eggs, 3 Tbsp coconut flour, and salt and peper as desired to the bowl. Mix everything together well to combine

4To form the fritters, first scoop up the mixture using a 1/4-cup measuring cup for each fritter. Next place each scoop on some parchment paper, and gently flatten with spatula until each fritter is about 3/4" in thickness

5Add about 1/4 cup of olive oil to the skillet with the remaining bacon fat to form a shallow layer of oil that covers the entire bottom of the pan. Heat skillet to Medium-Low

6Cook only 3-4 fritters at a time in the heated skillet. Cook each about 3 minutes per side, or until potatoes have cooked through and they develop a slight golden-brown color. Remove fritters and set on paper towel drain.

7Serve warm with fried or scrambled eggs. Enjoy!
