Lynn Socko gave me this idea from a recipe that she had, she used regular white po's. I was telling my BF about them and he said well why not do that with sweet po's and there you have it. I did this in the smoker, but of course you could very easily bake these in the oven. I don't know how long in the oven, but it took about 4 hours at 200° in the smoker, turning them once.

How To Make bacon wrapped sweet potatoes

  • 1
    Peel and cut the potatoes into wedges. I used small sweet potatoes and got 8 wedges total.
  • 2
    In the center of each wedge put a smear of cream cheese, then a small slice of mozarella, the mozarella will stick to the cream cheese.
  • 3
    Wrap bacon around making sure all the cheese is covered,
  • 4
    Drizzle with maple syrup.
  • 5
    Put in the smoker directly on the grates, I can't tell you how long because every smoker is different. In mine it took 4 hours at 200°. You could of course bake these in the oven.
