Yes, I took something healthy and made it not so healthy. I would feel guilty about it if these weren't soooooooooooooo good. The cayenne gives the sweetness a gentle kick that is a treat for your tastebuds.
Bacon wrapped sweet potatoes
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 9 pieces each
9 slices bacon, cut in half
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne
Cut the sweet potatoes into 9 sticks and boil for 10 minutes or until just soft enough to be able to stick a toothpick through them.
Cut bacon in half and bring to room temperature - it's easier to use to wrap at that temperature.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and spices.
When sweet potatoes are ready, drain and wrap bacon around and secure with a toothpick. Place in cast iron frying pan (or an oven ready fry pan) and brown lightly. Cover with brown sugar mixture and finish by baking for a half hour.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F
