Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Fries

Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potato Fries


2 sweet potatoes, cut into thick matchsticks*

1 package bacon, don’t use thick cut

Get your oven to 425°F.

Rinse the sweet potatoes and pat dry.
Slice each piece of bacon in half, lengthwise.

Wrap 1 strip of bacon around 1 matchstick sweet potato.

Lay on a baking sheet.

Repeat until all the bacon is gone.

If you have left over sweet potatoes, toss ‘em on the pan too, they’ll cook beautifully in all the rendered bacon fat.

Bake the fries for about 25 minutes on one side.

You’re looking for browned bacon. Use some tongs to flip the fries over and bake for another 10-12 minutes, until browned.

Tasty yummy!


it is poor form to eat from one’s own waste paper bin? OK screw “poor form.” Is it tacky? Now, NOT the PUT ON THE STREET GARBAGE BIN, the one under your desk, where the last bit of sweet potato crisps just called your name…they were on top.

I am NOT saying that I did that. well, I did, but I am not saying it!
