Maple Sweet Potatoes With Apple and Bacon

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Queen Roachie

This was in an email from Trader Joe's for the holidays. (Best little store ever!) I made it today for Thanksgiving and it's delicious! Putting on here to share and for safe keeping. One note: My sweet potatoes took quite a bit longer to roast and be tender so just check them and cook until they are done. I might have used too small a pan because I had to stir them and keep cooking past the time.

LOVE this recipe! LOVE Trader Joe's too! Found this on their website. I have the same problem with the potatoes and had to cook them a bit longer as well... I also substituted the bacon with 6 pieces of cut up turkey bacon (which came out delicious). Excellent recipe, easy to make, only downside is the prep can be a little long. Thanks for posting!!!

(I also made this recipe with sweet italian pork sausage instead of using bacon... It was delicious!!!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss potatoes with oil and salt. Roast at 400' about 20 minutes or until tender.
  2. Cook bacon over medium heat in a large pot. Add onions once fat starts to render. Cook until bacon is crisp and onions are translucent.
  3. Add apples to pot and cook 2 more minutes (I cooked longer to caramelize the apples a bit).
  4. Add potatoes and cook approximately 5 minutes, or until soft (Again, I cooked longer to get a bit of caramelizing on the potatoes).
  5. Toss with maple syrup and serve.
  6. Note: I roasted the potatoes the night before and just put them in the fridge so I wouldn't tie up the oven for Thanksgiving dinner.
