I've been sitting on this recipe for a while, but I have to share now that Thanksgiving and Christmas are approaching. It just seems like the perfect opportunity to totally wow all of your family and friends with these bites of delicious, perfectly cooked fries. 

I know they are delicious because everytime I whip these up, they are gone. In seconds. My toddler demands more, my mother in law is impressed (and trust me, an impressed mother in law, is definitely awesome), and even my husband may agree that sweet potatoes taste nice.

Bacon wrapped sweet potato fries


20-25 minutes


4 adult portions (and maybe a little leftovers) 


  • Uncooked bacon slices (I can't say exactly how many because our bacon has a different shape, but about ten bacon slices) cut into strips (2 cm wide, or .8 inches). You want to be able to wrap the bacon around the sweet potatoes 
  • 3 large sweet potatoes, cut length wise, also about 2 cm thick 
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika powder
  • Pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 395 degrees Fahrenheit 
  • Cut up sweet potatoes and bacon
  • Wrap bacon around potatoes 
  • Add seasoning
  • Place in oven for 15 minutes
  • Do not open the oven or flip
  • After 15 minutes, check it your fries are cooked. You can do this by poking them with a fork or tooth pick. If they are cooked, serve after letting them sit for a few minutes (if you can wait that long!) 
  • If they are not cooked enough, place back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes. Then remove, let them cool down for a few minutes, and serve!
