Picture of Sweet potato and bacon bites!
This might be one of the best things I've ever created. Honestly. Even better than sweet potato fries.

The flavors blend so well! You should really make this now. You could have something truly awesome to eat in less than a half hour. :D

Step 1: What you'll need:

Picture of What you'll need:
  • a large sweet potato
  • bunch of green onions (about 3 onions per sweet potato)
  • bacon of choice (or bacon bits - I used 3 strips of bacon for one potato.)
  • sour cream
  • shredded cheese of your choice - I recommend cheddar!
  • salt, pepper and chili powder
  • olive or canola oil
  • an oven preheated to 450 F
You'll also need a sheet pan to bake them on, and I recommend lining it with foil if you've got any around. :)

We have sweet potatoes right now...I think I'll try this tonight!
Do you have to cook an extra strip (or two) of bacon to account for shrinkage due to thievery?

Dooooo it, it's so good :D

And yep, though instead of thievery it's normally me eating it. You can see in the bacon photo I am missing most of a piece, hahah
