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.

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.
