Maple Bacon Sweet Potatoes

You haven’t lived until you try these. I love bacon, sweet potatoes and bacon so I thought to myself, “Why haven’t I combined these yet?” So I did it. And I keep on doing it. We’ve had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner this week. The flavors of sweet and savory are beautiful. I promise this recipe will change your life.

  • 4-6 sweet potatoes, diced (you can peel yours, but I usually don't)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 8-12 slices of bacon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spread out potatoes. Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil.
  3. Place in oven and let bake for about 40 minutes.
  4. While the potatoes are cooking, cook bacon in a pan until desired texture. I like mine a little crunchy.
  5. I dab my bacon in a paper towel to get the extra grease off and make me feel better about eating bacon...
  6. Sprinkle the bacon with fresh cracked pepper.
  7. Cut the bacon into small bite size pieces.
  8. Place the the baked sweet potatoes in a bowl and add the bacon bites.
  9. Pour the maple syrup over them until it is evenly mixed together and fully combined.
