6 slices bacon

1 large sweet potato (to yield one and a half cups, cooked)

0.75 cup heavy cream

0.75 teaspoons baking powder

3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

1 teaspoons sage leaves chopped

3 large eggs room temperature

1.5 teaspoons lemon juice

0.5 cup sour cream

0.25 teaspoons kosher salt


Cook Bacon

Put bacon on a rack over a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil. Transfer to oven and cook until crisp, about 12 minutes. Cool on rack. Once cool, chop half the bacon into 1/4-inch bits and transfer to small bowl to use later for batter. Chop remaining pieces into 1/2-inch strips and place in small bowl for garnish; set aside.

Cook Potato

Preheat oven to 400°F. Using a fork, prick sweet potato. Wrap in foil and bake until a knife inserted into potato encounters no resistance, about 35-40 minutes. Cool potato slightly, cut in half and scoop flesh from shell. Measure out 1-1/2 cups.

Make Batter

In small bowl, mix together flour and baking powder; set aside. Place cooked sweet potato in a blender. Add cream, milk, melted butter, sage and salt; blend for 20 seconds. Add eggs and process a few seconds more until fully combined. Transfer sweet potato mixture into a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture. Add lemon juice and chopped bacon; gently mix. Do not over mix or galettes will be tough. If too thick, add more milk.

Cook Galettes

Pour 1 Tablespoon of canola oil into a non-stick pan over medium heat. Spread oil around pan with paper towel. Working in batches, drop heaping Tablespoons of batter into pan, being careful not to overcrowd. Cook until underside and edge is golden, about 2 minutes. Turn pancakes over with nonstick spatula and cook until other side is golden and pancake is cooked through, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack over a sheet pan. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more canola oil as needed between batches.

Mix Sour Cream

Combine sour cream and salt.


Put pancakes on serving platter. Top each with dollop of sour cream and piece of reserved bacon. Add a baby sage leaf and serve immediately.
