Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

For the Biscuits

  • 1 medium orange-fleshed sweet potato, peeled
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) cold Real California unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch piece
  • 1/3 cup Real California buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup cooked, crumbled bacon

For the Hot Pepper Honey Butter

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) Real California unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce or more to taste


  • Medium Bowl
  • Step 1

    Wrap the sweet potato in a damp paper towel and microwave on high until very soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and mash with a potato masher. Measure out 3/4 cup mashed sweet potato (save remainder for another use) and set aside to cool.

  • Step 2

    Install the dough blade in the 72-ounce Power Blender & Processor Pitcher. Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and ground cloves in the pitcher. Use Manual Speed 1, select START/STOP, and blend briefly to combine.

  • Step 3

    Add the butter and install the lid. Use Manual Speed 1, select START/STOP, and blend until the butter is in pea-sized pieces.

  • Step 4

    Add the sweet potato and buttermilk and install the lid. Use Manual Speed 1, select START/STOP, and blend until the mixture just comes together, 10 to 15 seconds.

  • Step 5

    Remove dough from pitcher to a well floured surface, sprinkle the crumbled bacon on top, and gently knead a few times until the mixture comes together and the bacon is incorporated.

  • Step 6

    Pat the dough to about 3/4-inch thick, then use a floured 1 3/4-inch biscuit cutter to make 16 biscuits, gathering the scraps and gently patting together again as needed.

  • Step 7

    Assemble your Ninja® Foodi™ Smart XL 6-in-1 Indoor Grill. Select BAKE, set the temperature to 325°F, and set the time to 9 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating.

  • Step 8

    When the unit beeps to signify it has preheated, arrange half of biscuits evenly in the cooking pot and close hood.

  • Step 9

    After 7 minutes, check biscuits for doneness; they should be lightly browned. If desired, close hood and continue cooking up to 2 more minutes.

  • Step 10

    Repeat with remaining biscuits.

  • Step 11

    While the biscuits are cooking, make the hot pepper honey butter: In a medium bowl, combine the butter, honey, and hot pepper sauce. Add more hot pepper sauce to taste.

  • Step 12

    Serve the biscuits with the hot pepper honey butter.
