Fresh Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potatoes

The other night my sister-in-law was over and we thought we would try this recipe out. The plan was to make a batch, have some, and save some for Mr. Man when he returned home. UH- not so much. They were GONE in 5 min. I did make him some more last night and he and his brother finished off 2 batches. Let's not over analyze how many carbs, fats, protein that was. . . let's just focus on the fact that they are GOOD! :) I am warning you to make these at your own risk- you cannot have just a few.

Fresh Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potatoes
Bacon (Thick cut is harder to work with)
Sweet Potatoes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

*Peel sweet potatoes and cut into rounds, then into "fry" shapes.

*Cut bacon in half long ways and down the middle. This will give you 4 skinny pieces of bacon for every strip.

*Place foil over cookie sheet. (Be sure to use a cookie sheet that has a raised edge to catch the bacon grease).
 side note: Once you have removed your sweet potatoes, let the fat cool on the foil. You can remove the foil and throw it away- it makes clean up a breeze!
*Wrap bacon around  the sweet potato and place on foil. If you have extra sweet potatoes, just put them on the sheet too. Everything will cook evenly.

*Cook at 350 for 15 min. When finished cooking, broil on high for a few minutes or until the tops are crispy. (My oven took 5 min. on a high broil)

*Remove from the oven and enjoy!


  1. These are amazing! I'm making them for our New Years party. Thanks Jemi!!
