Smokey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

After the first bite, I knew I was hooked. This recipe would be on heavy repeat in my kitchen, I would use it as a side for everything. If there were leftovers (which often is not the case) I would fry an egg for breakfast and serve it over top of the sweet potatoes for a deliciously healthy start to the day.
The recipe comes for the cookbook, Meals Made Simple by the author of Against all Grain. I absolutely love this cookbook, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to cook healthy and delicious meals without spending hours preparing them. It does fit the Paleo lifestyle, but is certainly not limited to that. (And it does not take all sorts of weird and expensive ingredients, which is one of the main reasons I love it so much!)  

Smoky Roasted Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, diced
  • 8 ounces bacon, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
Preheat oven to 400*F.
In a large bowl, toss together all of the ingredients. Spread onto two rimmed baking sheets.
Place in oven and roast for 15 minutes.
Toss to coat potatoes in the rendered bacon fat. Continue roasting for 15 minutes, until the potatoes are crisp.
