Weekend Cooking-Yummy Sweet Potatoes!

I love sweet potatoes and I am always looking for a new way to fix them. I saw this in my Kraft Food & Family magazine and thought it looked interesting. When we got to my sister's house for Thanksgiving she had made this recipe. My daughter and I loved it! In fact, I loved it so much I have a pan of it in my oven as I type! I thought I would share the recipe with you so you wouldn't have to miss out on all the goodness!

Photo and recipe from Kraft Food & Family Magazine/Kraft Recipes(I have a paid magazine subscription but you can find the recipe online for free)

Apple-Bacon Sweet Potatoes

1 large onion, chopped
4 slices OSCAR MAYER Lower Sodium Turkey Bacon, chopped
1-1/2 lb. sweet potatoes (2 large), peeled, cut into bite-size chunks
2 apples, chopped
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped PLANTERS Pecans

Heat oven to 375ºF.

Cook onions and bacon in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 7 to 8 min. or until onions are crisp-tender.

Place potatoes in 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Add apples, apple juice and cinnamon; mix lightly. Top with onion mixture; cover.

Bake 40 min.; top with nuts. Bake 15 min. or until potatoes are tender and most the liquid is absorbed.

This turns out really flavorful and it isn't too unhealthy either. The Kraft Food & Family Magazine is a favorite read in our home. We always find great but simple recipes in it.

  1. My family is just starting to enjoy sweet potatoes, and this recipe sounds tasty. I'm going to have to try it!

  2. I love sweet potatoes also, I usually add pineapple, I will have to try this one. And the smell while cooking them...... delicious.

  3. I love sweet potatoes any ole way. I too have added pineapple but not apples. This sounds awesome. How can you go wrong with bacon?

  4. This sounds glorious. It reminds me a little of a curried cauliflower recipe which is an absolute favourite of mine. The apple in it really balanced the flavours beautifully.

  5. I love sweet potatoes, but prefer them prepared very simply. However... I also love bacon, so I may just go wild and try this recipe! ;)

  6. My mouth is watering at the thought of bacon, apples, and sweet potatoes! Sometimes sweet potato casserole can be too sweet--like eating dessert! but this sounds wonderful.

  7. I love sweet potatoes. This sounds delicious!

  8. We try and eat sweet potatos at least once a week. My son would eat them every day if he could get away with it. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Sounds/looks so yummy! I'll have to try the recipe out soon :)
