Ingredients

  • 6 rashers smoked streaky bacon
  • 2 sweet potatoes about 500g total
  • 1 onion
  • 30 g coconut flour
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • salt and pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil

Instructions

  • First place the bacon rashers under the grill.
  • Whilst the bacon is grilling you can peel and grate the sweet potatoes and the onion.
  • Add the coconut flour and eggs to the sweet potato and onion shreds.
  • When the bacon is ready cut it into small pieces and add that to the sweet potato mixture, mixing in it is dispersed evenly.
  • Mix in very well with your hands squeezing so it all binds together.
  • Heat a tablespoon of ghee on a low-medium heat in a large frying pan.
  • Scoop up half a handful of the rosti mixture and squeeze into a ball with your hands. Drop into the frying pan and flatten slightly into a circle. Repeat so you cook a few rostis at a time. You will probably need to cook the rostis in batches of 4 depending on how big your saucepan is.
  • Fry on a gentle heat for about 4 minutes until the bottom of the rostis are lightly golden. Then flip over with a spatula and fry on the other side for another 3 minutes until also lightly golden. Remove and place onto kitchen paper to remove the excess grease then serve or keep warm in the oven until they are all ready.

Notes

*for speed I have also used 1 teaspoon onion granules in the past and they have worked brilliantly.
*I have also used almond flour in place of coconut flour and it's worked well too.
