Ingredients

For the Candied Bacon & Pecans

  • 1/2 lb bacon
  • 1 oz pecans roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Pinch Salt & Pepper

For Potatoes

  • 3 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 oz pecans chopped
  • Pinch Salt & Pepper

Instructions

  • To candy the bacon, preheat the oven to 375° F. Cut the bacon into 1-2" pieces, place in a small bowl.
  • Melt the butter, use a microwave safe dish for 20 seconds. Pour the butter, brown sugar, pecans, salt & pepper over the bacon and mix well.
  • Spread out onto a sheet pan and bake for 15 minutes or until bacon starts to crisp. Use a spatula to remove and spread out onto parchment paper. Set aside.

For the sweet potatoes

  • Dice the potato into 2 inch chunks, boil until just slightly fork tender. Drain all water and set aside.
  • In a microwave safe dish (I used a glass measuring cup) , add the butter and brown sugar. Heat for 20 seconds in the microwave, or until butter is completely melted. Pour over the sweet potatoes , add the raisins, cinnamon, salt & pepper and half of the candied bacon/pecan mixture. Stir until combined.
  • Transfer to a baking dish and top with remaining candied bacon & pecans.
  • Bake for 20 minutes on 350.
