Thanksgiving Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Bacon
EVERYTHING tastes better with bacon as the saying goes, right? Sweet potatoes, thyme, and bacon just proves the point.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Bacon
2 lbs of sweet potatoes (about 2 large sweet potatoes)
5 sprigs of fresh thyme (or 2 tsp of dried thyme)
4 Slices of bacon
Coarse Salt (to taste)
Ground Pepper (to taste)
Preheat oven to 400. On a rimmed baking sheet, combine 2 pounds of peeled and cut sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 inch pieces), 4 slices of uncooked bacon cut into 1/2 inch pieces, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Roast until sweet potatoes are browned in spots and tender when pierced with a knife and bacon is crisp, about 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
I plan on doubling or tripling this dish for a large family get together this Thanksgiving. I love bringing something new to the table. What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving dishes? Post a link to them! I love adding recommendations from others to my meal-planning ideas.
I also plan on making Herb Pull Apart Yeast Rolls and an apple pie with Slow Cooked Apples. MMMMM... Thanksgiving, seriously my favorite holiday of the year.
