bacon and chive sweet potato biscuit

you had me at the name of this dish! i love bacon, chives and sweet potato so imagine all of together….yup! it’s that good.


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 strips of bacon
  • bacon fat
  • 3-4 tablespoons chives
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

here’s what i did with those ingredients:

  1. bake or microwave your sweet potato. whatever you please to get it mashable.
  2. peel and mash sweet potato in a bowl.
  3. preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. place diced bacon in a skillet and brown it.
  5. place bacon on a paper towel (and plate) to drain excess fat. don’t throw away the bacon fat. you will use it shortly.
  6. mix whisked eggs and mashed sweet potato. then add bacon fat and mix.
  7. add dry ingredients: coconut flour, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. mix.
  8. mix in diced, cooked bacon and thinly diced chives.
  9. on a lined baking sheet, use a large spoon to drop mixture, shaping if needed.  this recipe is enough for twelve biscuits.
  10. bake for 22-27 minutes.
  11. let rest.
  12. add whatever the hell you want…but it’s pretty tasty on its own.
