Good Easter morning!!
I feel like I should be posting a fun paleo treat or something since it’s Easter morning but we are out of town and I don’t have all of my standard cooking ingredients so will have to save that for another day. Instead I wanted to share with you one of my favorite blogs and a yummy recipe to go with…
If you haven’t checked out Multiplydelicious.com you are missing out! Heather, who is author of the site, amazes me. A friend and I thought her site wasn’t one person but rather a company, only because her pictures, food, and creativity is out-of-this-world. I have found some of my favorite recipes from her site over the years and now she has just released her own e-book. Click here to check out her awesomeness!
In celebration of her book, I wanted to cook one of her recipes and as always, she did not disappoint. We made her Tuna Bacon Cakes and they were great! I ate the leftovers for days on a spinach salad (yes, with my balsamic vinegar).
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.
This was more of an adult meal (for us since my kids don’t love the smell of tuna) but I loved them! Did I mention how great they were with some guacamole? Do I mention guacamole in every post or what? It’s just so good!
Oh by the way, I just found these cans of tuna at Costco. I originally bought mine at Whole Food for $4 something a can. I got 6 cans at Costco for $9.99. I love that place!
Hope you all found your Easter Eggs…
And have a very Happy Easter!
