Recipe: Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Bites
Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Bites
2 medium-small sweet potatoes
1 lb uncured bacon from foraged hogs
2 Tbsp coconut oil or ghee from grass-fed cows
1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
1 Tbsp sea salt
4 Tbsp maple syrup - OPTIONAL
Preheat oven to 350F. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them lengthwise into
quarters. Then cut each quarter in half, and then half again. You'll wind
up with 32 bites.
Melt coconut oil over low-heat and stir in chipotle chili powder and sea
salt. Toss the potatoes in the spiced, melted oil to coat.
Cut the bacon slices in half, so you have 32 mini-slices of bacon. Wrap
each sweet potato bite with a half slice of bacon, and use a toothpick to
hold the bacon in place.
Place on a stainless steel baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, turning
once about halfway through.
These are done when the bacon is crispy and the sweet potatoes are
fork-tender. Remove from heat, drizzle with maple syrup, and let cool
