Yield: 4 +
 
Ingredients
  • good quality bacon - we used wild boar (pretty thick)
  • sweet potatoes - peeled and chopped (fairly chunky - into wedges)
  • a dash or two of Cajun spice
  • some sea salt
Instructions
  1. start by peeling and chopping the sweet potatoes into wedges (chunky style) and place in a bowl
  2. sprinkle with Cajun spice and mix thoroughly
  3. then take the sweet potato wedges and wrap them with slices of bacon (if bacon is too wide, you can slice length-wise...it really depends on the cut!)
  4. line a baking sheet with some tin foil and then arrange bacon-wrapped wedges evenly on the pan
  5. preheat oven to approx. 325-350 degrees and cook until bacon becomes crispy (40-ish minutes depending on oven)
  6. if you wish to make them 'extra-crispy'...turn the oven to broil for the remaining 5-10 minutes
  7. plate and sprinkle with coarse sea salt (we used lemon & thyme - yummy!)
  8. for extra enjoyment...we dipped them in some delicious spicy guacamole
  9. enjoy!
