    Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. Mashed sweet potatoes are mixed with a homemade pesto, bacon, and a touch of maple syrup that masterfully caters to both sweet and savory cravings! I love that aspect of this recipe. I'm in law school, and mostly broke, so I make what I have in the fridge. One day, this was all I had so I put it together and threw it in the oven. It's been a staple since! I prefer to make a homemade pesto using almonds and coconut oil with my basil, but a traditional pesto is fine, too!
