Sweet Potato Patties…YUM!

Do you ever get tired of the same things for breakfast? Like many people, I get sort of stuck in a rut at times with breakfasts. I might do smoothies or awhile, then eggs, then breakfast scramble… but I don’t rotate the menu very often.

Today I created a new recipe with the ingredients I had on hand: a sweet potato, onion, garlic, mushrooms and turkey bacon. (You could definitely leave out the bacon for a vegan version of the same…just add a bit of sea salt for flavor.) They turned out so delicious that I will certainly make them again!

Sweet Potato Patties


1 medium sweet potato (any variety), sliced into 1/2 inch layers

1 small sweet onion, diced

3 cloves of garlic, minced

6 crimini mushrooms, sliced

3 slices of bacon (uncured, preservative free), diced

coconut oil

1. Pan fry the sweet potato slices in a tbsp. of coconut oil (use less or more, if desired). I covered mine for some of the cooking time to ensure they cooked through. When soft, take out and let rest on a paper towel to absorb the extra oil.Image

2. In the oil that remains in the pan, saute the remaining ingredients until softened and cooked through.Image

3. Top each of the slices with the sauteed veggies and bacon. Enjoy!Image
