This recipe includes bacon so watch your salivary glands while reading. It may put them in overdrive. This is a very easy recipe to make and goes with a lot of meals. The hardest part (which isn’t hard at all ) is simply chopping all the ingredients. Then you just throw them in the pan. It’s so easy a caveman could do it. Sorry, I had to.
- 8 oz. bacon, diced
- 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 2 medium apples, peeled and cubed
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 leek, diced (white/light green part only)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
Chop and dice all ingredients first and set aside. Chop bacon into 1/2 inch dices. Peel sweet pots and apple. Chop them into 1/4 inch cubes.
In a cast iron skillet cook bacon first until semi-crisp and the fat has completely rendered. Add the sweet potatoes, garlic, leek, cinnamon, ginger, paprika and S&P. Do not add apples yet.
Serving suggestions: As a side dish to pork tenderloin. With sausage and eggs at breakfast. Or straight from a bowl. MANGIA!
