Tuna Bacon Cakes
1 cup cooked sweet potato, mashed
2 to 3 green onions, finely diced
10 ounces canned wild albacore tuna, drained
2 to 3 slices cooked bacon, diced
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
1 small garlic clove, minced
Zest from 1/2 lemon (about 1/2 teaspoon)
2 pastured eggs
2 tablespoons coconut flour
sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
coconut oil, avocado oil, or bacon grease
In a large bowl mix together all ingredients through coconut flour. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat add fat of choice (coconut oil, avocado oil, or bacon grease), just enough to coat pan.
Form mixture into patties, should make about 7 or 8 patties.
Place about 3 to 4 patties into skillet, leave enough room around patties so they cook evenly. Cook patties on each side until golden and cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
Serve immediately over a salad or as you wish. Highly recommend with some diced avocado.
Makes about 7 to 8 patties
