Sweet Potato Bacon Bites

007These little bites I threw together for a birthday dinner last week. They were a big SUCCESS, so I thought let’s do it. Add them to Delishmas and let them bring joy to the holiday season. They are easy to make. They have bacon. All you have to do is pop one in your mouth. They’re perfect for parties and dinner sides. Hello, they are a freaking gift worthy giving. The gift of yummy food moans.

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.

I felt a tinge bad about replacing the sweet potato in the casserole. I have decided to give it a second chance, to let it play a sidekick. Today I put together this beautiful hasselback sweet potato and it was relatively easy to make, as well as packed with taste.
