Instead of cooking the potatoes the stove top, I roasted them which made things even easier. And adding crumbled bacon on top at the end was a great decision since we’re big fans of sweet and savory flavor combinations in our house. (If you’re not a bacon lover, you could easily omit this part of the recipe.)

Mhmm these look and sound delicious! I love roasting sweet potatoes and the sweet/salty combo drives me wild. SO GOOD.
I’ve always paired bacon with a baked potato (russet) never a sweet – genius!!
Nikki @ The Road to Less Cake says
I love how the sweetness of sweet potato works so well with the saltiness of bacon. This looks like a fab side dish. My OH would love it. I love SP and bacon in a frittata together. http://www.theroadtolesscake.com/2014/05/sweet-potato-and-bacon-frittata.html

Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed says
I love sweet potatoes! I think they are so sweet, you don’t even need the honey! And “if you’re not a bacon lover”… then you’re crazy 😉 Everything is better with bacon!
Yum! I’m not a huge bacon fan but I LOVE sweet potatoes. It sounds like it would taste just as good with no bacon! I may have to give it a try. 🙂
Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie says
I want all of this minus the bacon. Yum!
You could definitely leave out the bacon and it would still be yummy!
This sounds amazing!
Rachel @ Blonde with a Chanse says
Yum! I need to make this. It looks and sounds sooo good 🙂
Kate @ The Endorphin Junkie says
I love sweet potatoes! I usually sauté mine with olive oil and pumpkin pie spice, but I’ve used cinnamon and nutmeg too. I have never tried it with bacon though…you’re a genius 🙂
How can you NOT be a bacon lover?! It’s the best 🙂 I made sweet potatoes like this last night, but did salt/pepper/cinnamon and mixed with Quinoa and chicken sausage. Amazinggggggg
Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries says
Sounds absolutely delicious! I’ve been back on one of my sweet potato kicks, so this is PERFECT! I think I’m going to try grilling the sweet potatoes!
Fiona @ Get Fit Fiona says
That recipe sounds delicious. I love the sweet/savory combination of flavors, so I’d definitely be putting in the bacon!

Drooling ** definitively not drilling haha.
I’ve got two sweet potatoes at home right now that need to be cooked… this might be the ticket!
Perfect timing! 🙂

I love making sweet potatoes and bacon…or adding bacon to, well, any vegetables (especially Brussels sprouts!).
Ashley @ Sweet carolina belle says
Yum those sweet potatoes sound delicious! Thanks for sharing.
Sarah @ Sarah Sincerely says
Roasted sweet potatoes have become a recent obsession of mine. I cube them up and season them with season-all, cumin, and chili powder. SO good! They remind me a lot of the Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato Fries.
Craving some sweet potatoes!! I feel like some maple syrup would be appropriate here too!! 😉
I made these last night and they were delicious!! I used turkey bacon and even though it wasn’t as crunchy, it was so savory. My picky boyfriend loved them. I put a little too much honey, but with a little extra bacon it balanced out.
