Sweet Potatoes In Cream With Bacon

Sweet Potatoes In Cream With Bacon

I usually eat sweet potatoes roasted with just a dash of sea salt. This recipe might not be as low in calories but gosh it's good. Sliced sweet potatoes are baked in cream, nutmeg and brown sugar with bacon crumbled. It's a rich side dish that is perfect for the holidays or special Sunday dinners.



Place the sweet potato slices in a 9-inch x 13-inch inch baking dish. Arranged the slices in rows, stacked in an angle.

Distribute the bacon crumbles over the sweet potatoes.

Sprinkle the brown sugar over the sweet potatoes.

Pour the cream over the sweet potatoes. The cream should come up to just below the top of the sweet potatoes.

Dust the sweet potatoes with nutmeg.

Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and place in a pre-heated 350 degree F oven.

Baked for 45 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are fork tender.

Remove the aluminum foil and bake for another 5 minutes to thicken the sauce and caramelize the brown sugar.

Serve hot.


Time to prepare: 1 hour, 5 minutes.

Serves 8.
