Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Bacon

  We grow a large garden every year and for some reason sweet potatoes are one of the crops that almost always do well for us. This means that we have lots of fresh, homegrown sweet potatoes all throughout the year and I’m always trying to come up with new recipes to use them up. I use sweet potato puree in place of pumpkin puree in most recipes and no one can really tell the difference. One recipe that this works well in is my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.

 

  Anyway, I really love sweet potatoes, especially roasted in the oven. They’re so versatile because you can either add savory or sweet spices for two totally different flavors and they’re great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

 

  The Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Bacon recipe that I’m sharing with you today combines the sweetness of brown sugar and cinnamon with the salty, savory flavor of bacon. It really is a super delicious side dish that I know you will enjoy. Try serving it with my Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken Legs for a complete and healthy meal and check out the recipes below for more side dish ideas!
