Maple Bacon Sweet Potatoes

Course Side Dish


  • 8 cups chopped sweet potato
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3-4 tbsp bacon fat, duck fat, or lard
  • salt, to taste
  • ground cinnamon to taste


  • Steam sweet potato until soft. Mash by hand or puree in a food processor. I personally prefer hand-mashed as it has better texture.
  • Add bacon, maple syrup, fat, salt, and cinnamon and stir to combine.
  • Transfer mixture to an oven-safe serving dish and bake for 15-20 minutes at 325F.
  • Serve and enjoy!
