4 servings
1 hour - 15 minutes prep time

Sweet Potatoes with Bacon and Shallots4 medium sweet potatoes
5 to 7 shallots
250 grams (1/2 pound) bacon
salt & pepper

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Wash the sweet potatoes, and trim off any bruises or damaged skin. Cut them into 1" chunks. Put them in a large, shallow roasting pan. Peel the shallots, and cut them in halves or quarters. Add them to the sweet potatoes.

Cut the bacon into 1" pieces. Separate the pieces and toss them in with the sweet potatoes and shallots. Season generously with pepper, and cautiously with salt, as the bacon is likely to be salty.

Roast the sweet potatoes for up to 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender and the shallots and bacon are browned.
