One whiff of this and you’ll think it’s time for breakfast,
but it’s not only good for breakfast with eggs,
it’s great with ham or turkey and so many other items for dinner. Great for holiday meals as you don’t need to make it far ahead of time and it doesn’t take up space in the oven.

These sweet potatoes cook up so quick, you can make this on the fly for any meal.
If you didn’t plan out dinner, just cook up the sweet potatoes and bacon and crack a couple eggs on top and pop the skillet into the oven to finish cooking the eggs and you’ve got a great meal.
The possibilities are endless what you will want to serve this side dish with!
It also makes a great snack. I could eat this many times a week. I’ve been buying giant bags of sweet potatoes at my local warehouse store and they sure aren’t going to waste.
THIS is the skillet I use and love and I use it so much I have 3 of them and more in other sizes too, it’s a kitchen must have.
- 2 lbs sweet potatoes, cut into pieces
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (or butter)
- 2 oz cooked bacon, cut into pieces
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup ( I use grade B maple syrup)
- Heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add oil and sweet potatoes and cook while stirring for 3-4 minutes, or until fairly tender (in a cast iron skillet they will continue to still cook as the pan stays hot)
- Then add the bacon pieces and get them crispy.
- Drizzle the maple syrup and stir to coat all the sweet potatoes.

LOVE that first picture! It’s really a stunner and this sweet potato dish sounds amazing! I bet it would be wonderful for brunch as well as dinner and the aroma would certainly get sleepy guests out of bed. I’m thinking how delicious it would be with a fried egg, yum!

Sweet potatoes are one of my favourite sides and love your maple bacon version. Perfect for Spring!
Plop a couple of soft cooked eggs on that and I’m in heaven!
