  • 2 large sweet potatoes peeled and cubed.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 to 4 strips raw bacon cut into small pieces
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Combine the oil, maple syrup, ground cinnamon and bacon pieces in a bowl.  Toss potatoes in the oil and syrup mixtures.  Spread sweet potatoes on a sprayed baking sheet or one covered with parchment paper.  Make sure your baking sheet has sides so drippings will not run over in your oven.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until potatoes test done.
