Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tsp real salt
  • Pinch baking soda
  • 4 Tablespoons butter - keep chilled until ready to use
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk - may need a little more
  • ½ cup water
  • 4 slices of bacon - sausage, or ham works well too
  • 1 Medium sized sweet potato - chopped into small bite size pieces
  • ½ cup chopped bell pepper
  • ¾ large onion - chopped
  • 1 clove garlic - chopped (optional)
  • ½ - 1 cup grated cheese - optional
  • Coconut oil for bottom of skillet
Instructions
  • Heat oven to 400.
  • Cover the bottom of your pan, I use my 10 inch cast iron skillet, with coconut oil.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a medium-large mixing bowl.
  • Chop the butter into pieces and add to flour; cut it in until it is in tiny pieces like when you make biscuits or pie crust. I use a pastry hook, but you can use a fork.
  • Crack eggs into this and pour in buttermilk. Mix well.
  • Add the other ingredients and combine well.
  • Add water to make the dough pourable. It will be thicker than biscuit dough, but not as runny as pancake batter.
  • Pour into your pan and place in oven. Check it after 30 minutes. If it is brown enough, you can take it out and pierce a piece of sweet potato to see if it is done. Probably not, put back in for 5-10 minutes longer checking after 5 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes (if you can) and then slice out what you want. Yummy!

Notes

Of course, you know that all my ingredients are non-gmo, organic and/or farm raised. Use what you have. I don't always add cheese and garlic, just depends on how I feel :)
