Amount / QuantityIngredients

Medium sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded*

5 slices

Jones Dairy Farm No Sugar Uncured Hickory Smoked Bacon



3/4 teaspoon

Sea salt

1/4 teaspoon

Black pepper

3/4 teaspoon

Garlic powder

3/4 teaspoon

Onion powder


Scallions, white and green parts separated

Rendered bacon fat or other cooking fat to brush on waffle iron


Fried eggs
Thinly sliced scallions (green parts)
Crushed red pepper
Extra crumbled bacon


  1. Drain your shredded sweet potatoes on paper towels and squeeze to get rid of excess moisture. Place in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook the bacon until crisp and drain on paper towels, then crumble.

  3. Add crumbled bacon to mixing bowl along with the eggs, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. Finely chop the white parts of the scallions and add them in as well, saving the green part for garnish.

  4. Preheat your waffle iron and mix ingredients together well to form a “batter”. Brush waffle iron with rendered bacon fat or cooking fat of choice.

  5. Once fully heated, add your batter to the iron. I used an 8” round waffle iron and made 3 full waffles with my mixture. Depending on the size and style of your waffle iron, you may make fewer batches.

  6. Close waffle iron and cook until deep golden brown on both sides and crisp on the outside. While the waffles cook, you can prep your toppings (fry eggs and extra bacon) if desired.

  7. Release waffle from iron carefully and repeat until batter is used up. This recipe should yield about 6 servings.

  8. Top with fried eggs, more bacon, and anything else you like. Enjoy!

  9. *You can shred in a food processor or by hand with a grater.
