Happy Homesteading

Sweet Potato Pancakes

It’s breakfast time at the homestead and I’ve run out of eggs. But we’re getting ready to go on vacation and I can justify stocking up on eggs since we’ll be gone.  Plus we just got 6 laying hens and if I buy eggs I may give them a complex.  

Last night I made “half baked sweet potatoes”. My kiddos used to LOVE puréed sweet potatoes but now that they’re on to finger foods they just aren’t into them.  They didn’t want to eat them last night and I don’t want to see them go to waste so I grabbed half of a pre-baked sweet potato and peeled it. I put it in my Magic Bullet with about 3 tablespoons of water. I added 1/3 cup of pancake mix (the “just add water” kind… any will do but we use the generic bag from Sam’s Club). Then I added about 1/3 cup of water (but it really depends on how thick or thin you like your pancakes). I poured my batter from the magic bullet right into the pan.  (I don’t use oil because I have this amazing Ozeri stone skillet that you all need to add to your Christmas list – I literally use it at least twice per day) I flipped the pancakes when they got really bubbly (like you would any pancake).  

These turned out to be a great little finger food for my munchkins and I hope yours like them too. I think next time I make them I’ll add cinnamon.  

Hope you all have a great day!
