Sweet Potato Home Fries Recipe

I’d been craving sweet potato fries and was looking online for some new recipes to try. I ended up finding this recipe for Sweet Potato Home Fries on my iPhone via the Food Network Canada app. There’s a ton of recipes on there! This one has only three ingredients: bacon, sweet potatoes and green onions. It’s made entirely on the stove top and the potatoes are cooked in the bacon drippings giving it so much flavour.

Next time, I think I will cut the sweet potatoes into smaller cubes so they will cook faster. The bigger pieces took longer to cook and I was starving and didn’t want to wait that long!
