There is nothing better in my mind than the combination of savory and sweet.  Imagine the warm sweetness of yams with the salty goodness of bacon.  Enough said.  These Grain Free Sweet Potato Bacon Waffles are the bomb!

I have to admit: my whole life basically revolves around food.  I wake up thinking about what I want for breakfast.  I spend time food prepping for the day. I eat a big lunch.  I dream about what’s for dinner.  I plan for the next day’s meals.  I’m a bit obsessed.

 

And when I like something, I really like it.  I have an ongoing love affair with yams and sweet potatoes.  I love to make Heavenly Sweet Potato Pudding for breakfast.  One of my favorite side dishes is Honey Sesame Yams.  I could eat Masala Sweet Potato Bites every day of the week.   And Southwest-Style Baked Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite weeknight dinner recipes.

 

This recipe was inspired by the super easy sweet potato pancakes my oldest daughter makes in the morning.  Just eggs and mashed leftover sweet potato.  So simple.  So good.  And since bacon makes EVERYTHING better, I added some.

You may have seen my recipe for Grain Free Banana Waffles a while back.  Those have become a family favorite.  I still am “borrowing” my dear friend’s waffle maker, so I thought I would make some more waffles.  I’m sort of in love with the waffle maker.  I don’t want to give it back.  My waffles come out perfect EVERY time. Maybe if I make her a plate of these delicious waffles, she will let me keep it a bit longer.

 

Hope you enjoy.  I’m literally still licking my lips after devouring 2 of these little beauties.  I mean, seriously!  You can’t really go wrong with sweet potatoes and bacon.
