These are a great way to use up the last of those root cellared beets before fresh produce starts appearing. Grate 1 small peeled beet while you fry up two pieces of bacon. Stir up 1 egg and combine the egg and grated beet, then add in 2 T of cream cheese, 2 T of flour, 2 T of heavy cream, 1 T of maple syrup, the bacon (mince it up for bacon flavor throughout, or do a coarser dice to...
