    I thought I had Thanksgiving all figured out until I ran into this recipe. More savory than sweet it might be just the thing to complete that turkey dinner!

    5. 5
      Add onion; cook 15-20 minutes or until onions are caramelized, stirring frequently.
    6. 6
      Adjust heat, if necessary, to prevent onions from browning too quickly.

    13. 13
      Drain and rinse until cool.

      Blanching helps remove some of the smoky flavor from the bacon.

      My husband doesn't like the traditional sweet potato casserole with brown sugar and marshmallows, so I was going to make a small dish for myself. Then I found this more savory-than-sweet recipe. He enjoyed them, our guests and I loved them! I used regular bacon instead of pancetta. I also did the onions overnight in the crockpot (did a lot for another recipe). We definitely will make this again for the holidays.

      This is an excellent alternative to the ultra sweet dishes that usually are made of sweet potatoes. It is unusual and I hope it will be a hit at my Thanksgiving meal.

      I made this last year, and we enjoyed it so much that I served it again at yesterday's Christmas dinner. I love the flavors and wouldn't change a thing!
