The original recipe was on Epicurious, but I modified it by leaving out the red pepper, and reducing the onion, to suit my diet which has to be low in nightshade plants and onion.
Two pounds of sweet potato, diced
Bacon I use four to six slices depending on my mood
1/4 onion chopped, I reduce this because really I shouldn’t have any
1 tsp dried thyme
Salt and black pepper
Chop the bacon into small strips. Fry bacon, remove from pan, fry onion in bacon fat. Add sweet potato, cover and cook until soft. Add bacon, thyme, salt and pepper.
