Bacon-Wrapped Sweet Potatoes


yams or sweet potatoes - 2 medium

nitrate-free bacon - about 9 slices


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Cut yams lengthwise into roughly the same size wedges. I ended up with 8 wedges per yam. If you have a larger yam, you can make more wedges.
Use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut bacon in half lengthwise. I find that a thinner cut of bacon works best.
Wrap each wedge with a bacon slice.
Lay slices in a single layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, then use tongs to flip the wedges, and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.
