Fully Loaded Bacon Sweet Potatoes
I've got the big wowza side dish for your Thanksgiving feast this year. I LOVE sweet potato casserole topped with mini marshmallows. However I always feel like there's never enough sweet potato to go around. It gets overwhelmed by the mini marshmallows and you miss out on that delish sweet potato taste.
So I decided, why not make things easier and individually portioned this year? You get more sweet potato deliciousness AND it's so much easier than putting together a casserole. All you have to do is bake up some sweet potatoes and top them with an AMAZING sauce filled with butter and sugar and spices. Not to mention mini marshmallows and BACON.
The savory sweet combo in these potatoes will have everyone going crazy at your Thanksgiving table. Everyone from the kiddos to the adults will swoon for it, and it makes the easiest and best side for all that turkey that you plan to inhale. Not to mention the leftovers are completely bomb diggity and you are going to want to set one (or two) aside to indulge in the weekend after Thanksgiving.
Happy turkey day folks!

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bake potatoes on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet for 45 minutes to one hour, until tender. Remove from oven and make a slice in the center, leaving approximately a 1/2-inch on either end. In a small bowl, whisk together unsalted butter, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg and vanilla. Spoon in the melted butter mixture into each sweet potato, distributing evenly. Add bacon evenly between the four potatoes. Top each with mini marshmallows. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes, until the marshmallows are toasted on top. Remove from oven and serve.
