Twice baked sweet potatoes with candied bacon

Hi everyone, so last night I made a very fall inspired meal and today I am going to share one of the recipes from that meal with you. I found this recipe in the Woman's World and I thought it would be easy enough to do since I had all the ingredients for it. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as my family did.


5-8 large sweet potatoes
2 cookie sheets lined with tin foil
2 teaspoons of chili powder2 teaspoons of cinnamonsalt and pepper to taste4 slices of bacon1 egg2 pats of unsalted butter melted1/2 cup brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grab one of your tin foil lined cookie sheets and cut your sweet potatoes in half. Do not peel them ! Leave your oven on tooBake until the meat of the sweet potato is soft. Let cool for about 15 -20 minutes. Next peel the skins off and mash the potatoes. Add your egg and butter and then the chili powder, salt and pepper and cinnamon and mix.After the potatoes are mixed set aside. Grab a plate and coat the bacon on both sides with the brown sugar and place on the cookie sheet and bake for about 15-18 minutes. When the bacon is done cut it in little pieces. Put your potatoes in a casserole dish of if you have a souffle dish that will work perfectly. Add your bacon on the top and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Serve this with chicken or by itself. Its a wonderful fall recipe that is quick and easy as well as healthy too. I hope you all have a wonderful fall day and live, laugh and love too.

Quick Tip:
If you peel your sweet potatoes before baking them the outside will get rock hard and the inside will be soft. I learned this lesson when I made this recipe last night, I had to put it all in my food processor for about 5 minutes on high just so there wouldn't be any hard bits through it. If you let the sweet potatoes cool and then peel them with your hands you will be much better off than I was lol.
