Easy Paleo Sweet Potato & Bacon Breakfast Fritters

Hungry for a hearty paleo breakfast and have a little extra time to whip up something special?

Let me introduce you to these golden sweet potato fritters spiked with crunchy bacon – a real paleo treat to satisfy your hungry morning crew.

There’s really nothing hard at all about this bodacious breakfast side. A little potato grating is the only halfway serious prep required. The rest is just a little mixing, and then a quick trip to the skillet.

My  only tip for this one is to avoid crowding your frying pan. Cook these in small batches – three fritters at a time will probably work best for you. That will leave you enough room to get your spatula in there and give them a flip without running into problems. Cook these around three minutes per side, or until the potatoes are tender and have a nice golden crust.

Serve with eggs any style and enjoy!

Hope you enjoy this easy paleo breakfast recipe, and as always, let me know what you think in the comments section below the recipe!  [av_sidebar widget_area=’Lockerdome’ av_uid=’av-ifwsgu’]

    Had anyone tried these with leftover baked sweet potatoes?

  2. My daughter and I loved these fritters. I had mine with an egg over easy, and it was delicious and filling. My daughter had hers with scrambled eggs and ketchup, and thought they were wonderful. We’ll definitely makes these fritters again. The recipe was also lots easier to make than I thought, and I was impressed how well the fritters held together when I cooked them. Great recipe!

  3. Cheryl Koontz says:

    This was the most delicious breakfast I’ve had in quite awhile! These fritters taste amazing and I can feel so good about it following my AIP! Thank you so much!!

  4. Hi there! These look delicious! My son, and myself, both have many food restrictions and egg being one of them. Do you have any ideas on an egg substitute? It’s been so hard finding yummy breakfast items he will actually like. He is my “meat and potatoes” teenager and he misses his “normal breakfasts”. :(

  5. Fern Collier-Pereira says:

    Hi: This looks yummy and definitely worth trying. Looks easy. Sort of healthier more creative potato latkes. I love bacon but tend to stay away from it and use turkey bacon which is less fat… I don’t see any reason why this cannot be made with turkey bacon instead and still be delicious. Agree?

  6. These paired perfectly with a spicy mayo dipping sauce and a couple of crispy fried eggs. Thanks for a great recipe!
