Bacon Maple Mash


We are going to start off project ‘Delishmas’ with a mash! For Thanksgiving we did a rutabaga mash, but this month I figured we play with the savory, sweet mix I adore. The original game-plan was to do a Maple Mash. Season it with sea and cinnamon and GO. However, seeing as I am the culinary creator I thought we could add more flavor. Tomorrow I have Sweet Potato Bacon Bites. I decided to bake my sweet potatoes then with the bacon. Letting them cook in bacon fat. Yum love the layering of flavors.

Bacon Maple Mash

  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 5 slices of bacon
  • 2 tbsp quality maple

Let’s Make it Happen: Skin the sweet potatoes cubes or discs, or both. Sprinkle with cinnamon and maple. Cut bacon, intersperse among the sweet potatoes. Bake at 375 for 35 minutes or until bacon is cooked thoroughly and the sweet potatoes are tender. Remove the pieces of bacon (feel free to munch as you prep the mash or serve on the side). Place the sweet potatoes in a bowl or food processor. My processor was missing, so I went old school on this by using a hand masher. Spread into a serving pan and enjoy!
