I thought I had a great idea, apparently I did, others have done this before me! I love sweet and savory flavors with my sweet potatoes, so that's the path I took. You could also add some heat to kick it up.

These would be even more delicious cooked on the grill or smoker.

How to Make Sweet Potato Bacon Bites

Step-by-Step

  1. I used potatoes that were about 2" in diameter. Peel potatoes, cut very end off. Slice the same width as the bacon. Place in a mixing bowl and drizzle with enough olive oil to completely coat potatoes. In a small bowl add dry ingredients. Give a little taste and adjust seasonings to your taste. Mix together well. Pour into bowl with oiled potatoes and toss. Using your hands be sure potatoes are well seasoned.
  2. Use 1/2 slice of bacon for each potato. Wrap around the potato and secure with a toothpick. Once all are wrapped, roll the bacon in the leftover rub to coat.
  3. Place on a non stick surfaced pan, these will caramelize on the bottom and tend to stick. Bake at 350 for 35-45 min. until potatoes are tender and bacon is browned. Remove immediately. Sprinkle coarse sea salt on them as soon as you remove them from pan.
