Sweet Potato With Creamy, Cheesy Bacon Topping

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by JustJanS

I've been making this for years, but just decided to share it now. I do the same with pumpkin or mashed potato or a mix of any of the 3. Leftovers of these work well too, though you would need to allow a little extra cooking time to allow them to reheat through. Cooking time includes the approximate time needed to boil the sweet potato.

Yum! I had some leftover bacon, onion mixture from a gravy so used that to top this. I used cream in lieu sour cream but otherwise made as directed..Little Miss DD demolished this and asked for more and I thoroughly enjoyed it too..simple to do but tastes divine. Thanks Jan!
