{Super Bowl Recipe Re-Post} Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potatoes

Did you know that I live in Massachusetts?

The Boston area?

Did you know that I moved to the Boston Area in 2006 because I had a crush on the Pats backup quarterback?

Kidding…

In all seriousness, I’m a huge Patriot’s fan.

Most embarrassing fact of  my life that I’m willing to share on a blog: I tore my ACL in 2007 at the NE Patriots Cheerleader auditions whilst doing a high kick.

Not kidding…Who does that? Seriously…

With the most important re-match in football history coming up this Sunday, I thought it would be a good idea to share some football party pickie recipes.

Starting with this one:

Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potatoes

(Originally Posted in June 2010)

Ingredients:

2 sweet potatoes (I like the jewel yams–redder on the outside, oranger on the inside)

1 lb Bacon (uncured, no nitrates or nitrites added)

Olive oil

Rosemary (fresh or dried)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes into “fries” (with the skin on) and spray with olive oil
  3. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes on each side. After baking, I let the sweet potatoes cool to a temperature that you can comfortably handle them.
  4. Dip them in a mixture of olive oil (1/4 cup ) and rosemary (1 Tbsp).
  5. Cut the bacon strips in half and lightly fry them.
  6. Wrap each sweet potato fry in one “1/2 strip” and secured with a skewer.
  7. Lay each morsel on an aluminum foil lined baking pan, and bake them again at 400 degrees for 7-10 minutes on each side (until the bacon is crisp).

You could also use a whole piece of bacon and smaller sweet potatoes so that the entire potato is wrapped in delicious bacon.

I’m getting super excited for this weekend…there WILL be more recipes to come!
