I LOVE sweet potatoes, but I am not a fan of the usual sweet, syrupy preparation. This recipe brings out the true taste of sweet potatoes, with a little sweet and savory kick. Hope you enjoy!! Prep time does not include time to cook the bacon.

I love sweet potatoes and I love bacon so this is a great combo. I used brown sugar in place of the granulated. I would recommend peeling the potatoes before you boil them only b/c it is a little hot to peel them after cooking. LOL I didn't want them to cool down too much so I only rinsed them in cold water for a bit. I used my electric mixed and they whipped up fast.
