This is an unusual combination, but my family really loved it and it became a "comfort food" overnight. The FRESH rosemary makes the difference. I haven't tried the recipe with dried rosemary. I had bought some fresh at the store recently and decided to try new things using it; that's how this recipe was born.

Ingredients

2 large
sweet potatoes, fresh
4 slice
bacon, chopped
8 oz
turkey breakfast sausage, crumbled
1 medium
onion, chopped
2 Tbsp
olive oil
2 Tbsp
butter
3/4 tsp

Step-By-Step

1Use a very large skillet. Peel and dice the sweet potatoes (about 1/2-inch dice). Chop the bacon and crumble the sausage. Dice the onion and mince the garlic.
2Cook the bacon, sausage and onion in the olive oil over medium high heat until bacon begins to crisp and sausage is cooked.
3Add the butter and the sweet potatoes. Saute the sweet potatoes until they are slightly browned in the butter, but do not let the butter get too brown or burn.
4Stir in the salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary, and chicken stock. Combine well, cover, and simmer about 15-20 minutes or until sweet potatoes are done to your liking. Taste for seasoning before serving.
