Danny Inverted!

Sweet Potato Pancakes! 

Next time you’re in the mood for a hearty breakfast, but don’t want to spike your insulin and crash later in the day, try out these sweet potato pancakes – a perfect pre or post WOD meal!

Bruner Sweet Potato Pancakes

Serves 2

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Pasture raised bacon (no nitrites or nitrates) + all the bacon grease
  • 6 cage free, organic eggs (2 eggs for pancakes + 2 eggs each for frying)
  • 1 large organic sweet potato (enough for 2 cups grated)
  • a lot of organic kale
  • 1/4 tsp organic nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp organic vanilla
  • sprinkle of sea salt
  • a wok, griddle, and pan

WHAT YOU DO:

  1. cut the sweet potato into small chunks and throw them into the Vitamix – or if you don’t have one just grate your potato with a cheese grater
  2. put grated sweet potato in a bowl and add nutmeg, vanilla, sea salt, cinnamon, two eggs, and stir it up
  3. Turn your burners to medium-high under your pan and griddle
  4. we had left over bacon grease from Pete’s Paleo bacon, so I heated our wok and put a big scoop of bacon grease in there (you can also use coconut oil)
  5. put the potatoes in the pan and coat them all over by tossing a few times.
  6. turn balls of the potato mixture into patties and lay them on the griddle, after coating it with more bacon grease or coconut oil (about 5-6 minutes a side)
  7. start to cook your bacon on the other pan (always save the grease for later!)
  8. flip your potato pancakes and keep an eye on your bacon
  9. pull the bacon off the pan once it’s done, pour some of the grease into a cup to save, and crack the remaining 4 eggs on this pan to fry. (note: don’t break the yoke like I did)
  10. add kale to the wok and sauté this up
  11. place kale, sweet potato pancakes, and bacon on your plate, and THEN the fried eggs on top*
  12. ENJOY!

*note: We like our eggs over-easy so we can “pop” the yokes on top of everything.

I was amazed at how long this kept me full and at how great I felt when I worked out later. Try it! Delicious and pretty easy too.
