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
