Bacon. Wrapped. Sweet. Potatoes.
I should just stop writing and give you the recipe.
But let me prove their worth. I have taken these things to no less than 4 holiday parties over the past two weeks. They never last. They always please. What more do we need?
The best part is how simple they are. Ridiculously simply.
The Best Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potatoes
Start with two sweet potatoes, scrub them and cut them into fries:
I like to season them the way I season my sweet potato fries. Nothing crazy. Salt. Pepper. Garlic powder.
Then we wrap the fries in bacon. Your sweet potatoes never loved you more.
I left some sweet potatoes without bacon for people who don’t like bacon. I haven’t found such a person yet but, you know…
I cut the bacon in half length wise because I like the bacon to get crispy. The best way to achieve this is to avoid having your bacon overlap. But this is your party, do what you want 😉
To get the bacon crispy, put them in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Then flip and do another 10-20 minutes ( I start at 10 minutes and keep a watch on them!).
If you can get them to the party without eating them all I commend you and your guests should know of your great patience and restraint.
The first party I took them to was to our CrossFit holiday party. I walked in and put the fries on the table. I went back out to my car to grab the dipping sauce (maple syrup and sriracha ketchup) and when I returned the fries were gone.
So, there’s that. For all your holiday party needs!!
Oh wait, silly me. DO drizzle them in maple syrup 😉
