Paleo Eggs Benedict
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and shredded
- 3 green onions, green part only, sliced
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 3 tbsp. high-heat oil (such as avocado oil)
- 2 small avocado, pitted
- 4-6 slices, nitrate free bacon, baked or fried
- 4 eggs, poached
- salt and pepper to taste
- hot sauce for garnish
In a medium mixing bowl, add the shredded potato, green onions (save some for garnish if you would like), garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix together with your hands and form into patties.
Heat 1 1/2 tbsp. of the oil in a large pan and cook the patties, 4 in each bach as not to crowd the pan. Cook until dark brown on both sides, about 2 minutes on each side, remove from skillet and keep warm while you cook the next batch. Repeat.
Meanwhile, mash the avocado in a small bowl seasoned with salt and pepper and poach the eggs.
To assemble, place 1 to 2 sweet potato patties on the plate. Top with bacon, then a dollop of the avocado smash and lastly, an poached egg. garnish with more green onions and hot sauce.
