  • Author: Bri McKoy
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 55 minutes


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 package bacon (for paleo make sure to use sugar-free, nitrate free bacon)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Scrub the sweet potatoes and cut them into fries.
  3. In a bowl toss the sweet potatoes with the oil and seasonings.
  4. Cut the bacon in half lengthwise.
  5. Wrap each sweet potato with a piece of bacon and lay on a baking sheet that has been oiled down.
  6. Bake on the first side for 20 minutes then flip and bake for another 10-20 minutes, until the bacon is crispy and the sweet potato is cooked through.


Optional: serve with 100% pure maple syrup or paleo sriracha ketchup!

The first time you make these be sure to check them every 10 minutes. Everyone’s oven is different. You are looking for the bacon to get crispy. Also, play around with the seasonings! I might try some with cumin next time or paprika! You can also forgo the seasonings all together and just wrap up the sweet potatoes as they are.
