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
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.
