Maple-Bacon Sweet Potatoes

This superfood gets a sweet upgrade thanks to crumbled bacon bits, sour cream and a drizzle of maple syrup.


  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 4 slices bacon
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup


  • Preheat barbecue to medium. Prick potatoes all over with a fork. Wrap each tightly in foil. Barbecue potatoes, lid closed, rotating every 15 min, until potatoes are tender when pierced, about 45 min. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Place bacon on grill. Barbecue until crisp, flipping to avoid flare-ups, 4 min per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  • To serve, unwrap and cut an X diagonally along one long side of each potato. Pinch ends until the flesh pops out slightly. Mash the flesh lightly with a fork. Top each potato with 1 tbsp sour cream. Drizzle with maple syrup. Roughly chop bacon and crumble overtop.
