2x sweet potato hash brown(cakes) 2x cracked pepper/honey strips bacon, 2 lg eggs sunny side up, black coffee.
To prepare sweet potato hash browns, clean/peel/shred 2 medium sweet potatoes, add 1 lg egg, 4oz shredded cheddar cheese, seasoned salt, pepper, green onions 2 tbsp miracle whip, blend/patty fry on med/high heat in vegetable oil till golden delicious. I cut bacon in half, generous pepper corn, tbsp honey, fry low/med heat-trick to getting good caramelized bacon, lower your heat, flip bacon twice.
*
The whole Hash brown recipe was probably under 380 calories, and it yielded approx 6 cakes, and I only ate 2.

    I used to love sweet potato pancakes! I used to make one giant one. I got tired of the cleanup, and it wasn't enough protein. I see you added cheese and bacon, and that would help.

    Unless the 4 oz of cheddar cheese was a typo, your calorie calculations are off.
    4 oz of cheddar is over 400 calories.
    At 113ish calories per sweet potato, 70 cals for the egg, 26 for the miracle whip and then the cooking oil, you're over 320 cals without the cheese.
    Add the 4 oz of cheddar and you're in the ballpark of around 760-780 cals.

    You beat me to it. I'm wondering if maybe OP used low fat or nonfat cheese, which would shave about 200 calories off the total. It would still be way over OP's estimate.

    Sorry guys, wrong type of cheese and amount and calorie count per, pain in the a$$ using their food picker.
    1/4 cup was 96 calories, I need to be able to enter the exact calorie/protein etc on my packages per servings, but haven't figured it out yet. So sometimes my numbers are blown out, or I mis-typed, but I watch it pretty meticulously when cooking, plus your not eating the whole batch, I made 3 servings from the batch.
