Maple Sweet Potatoes With Apple and Bacon

“This was in an email from Trader Joe's for the holidays. (Best little store ever!) I made it today for Thanksgiving and it's delicious! Putting on here to share and for safe keeping. One note: My sweet potatoes took quite a bit longer to roast and be tender so just check them and cook until they are done. I might have used too small a pan because I had to stir them and keep cooking past the time.”

Directions

  1. Toss potatoes with oil and salt. Roast at 400' about 20 minutes or until tender.
  2. Cook bacon over medium heat in a large pot. Add onions once fat starts to render. Cook until bacon is crisp and onions are translucent.
  3. Add apples to pot and cook 2 more minutes (I cooked longer to caramelize the apples a bit).
  4. Add potatoes and cook approximately 5 minutes, or until soft (Again, I cooked longer to get a bit of caramelizing on the potatoes).
  5. Toss with maple syrup and serve.
  6. Note: I roasted the potatoes the night before and just put them in the fridge so I wouldn't tie up the oven for Thanksgiving dinner.
