Sweet Potato Bacon Biscuits!

Happy Friday-eve! This is my 4th post in a row this week, whoa. I went from being MIA to bombarding you with all kinds of Thanksgiving goodness. Thanksgiving is just 1 short week away though! It is time to get that menu plan locked and loaded. So why should these biscuits make your Thanksgiving menu? Well first (and most importantly) they're freaking delicious. Second, they have bacon in them. Do I really need a third? I said bacon. But if you really need a third, it's a different, unexpected way to do sweet potatoes. I know I talk about (and cook) sweet potatoes ALL THE TIME, and that's mostly because I just love them but they're also nutritional powerhouses! Super good stuff yo. So eat your sweet potatoes. Like this. Or like any of the other tons of ways I've mentioned on this blog.
This is a Paleo OMG recipe (, she's hilarious & makes amazing food!) and the MINUTE it arrived in my in-box I knew I would be making them. They combine my hubby's 2 favorite things, sweet potatoes & bacon. Sounds like a weird combo, tastes delicious. TRUST ME. I added a little cheese and that was a great addition but they would be fab without as well. Just as great with breakfast as dinner too. These little guys are versatile! Check out Juli's original recipe here:

2 sweet potatoes, cooked & peeled (I just zapped mine in the microwave for 10 min)
3 Tablespoons coconut flour (I would think any kind of flour would work though...)
3 eggs, whisked
8 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled
leftover bacon fat from cooked bacon
4 Tablespoons chopped green onions
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
(optional) 1/4 cup shredded cheese

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a baking sheet. Mash your cooked & peeled sweet potatoes in a bowl (I just used a fork, mine were super soft).
Step 2: Add flour and stir to combine.
Step 3: Add eggs and stir to combine.
Step 4: Add bacon, bacon fat, green onions, baking powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper, and cheese (if desired) and stir to combine.
Step 5: Drop biscuits by rounded spoonfuls onto your baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown on top and cooked through.


  1. These look so good! But what doesn't when you add bacon? Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    1. Thanks! They are super good. I'm a little confused by your question? When to add the bacon?

    2. I think she meant what doesn't look good when you add bacon :) It took me a second to understand after reading it too. Lol.

      Anyway, I'm making these for Thanksgiving breakfast tomorrow, can't wait to wow my family with them!
