Stokes Purple® Sweet Potato Pancakes with Apples and Bacon
1/2 large Stokes Purple® Sweet Potato
4 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2-inch dice
2 cups store-bought pancake mix (your favorite kind)
3 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil
1 cup low-fat milk
1 Granny Smith apple
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons butter
Maple syrup (for serving)
Peel the sweet potato with a vegetable peeler, then cut into 1-inch cubes. Place cubes in a small saucepan and add water to cover by 1 inch. Bring potatoes to a boil, turn down heat, and simmer about 15 minutes, until sweet potatoes are tender. Mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth. Set aside.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add diced bacon and fry until golden and crisp. Drain bacon on a plate lined with paper towels. Set aside. Wipe out, but do not wash, skillet. Turn heat down to medium-low.
Put pancake mix, eggs, oil, milk, and mashed purple sweet potatoes in a large bowl; whisk to combine. Quarter, peel, and grate the apple using a box grater or hand-held grater. Add grated apple and cinnamon to pancake batter and stir to combine.
Melt 1 teaspoon butter in skillet and add approximately 1/2 cup batter. Sprinkle some cooked bacon on top of pancake batter. Fry pancake on both sides until golden brown, fluffy, and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Serve with pure maple syrup.
