Nothing quite compares to the luscious aroma and tasty crunch of crispy bacon. Despite its reputation as an unhealthy food, bacon is actually packed with heart-benefiting omega-3 fatty acids and can be eaten in reasonable quantities. Choose a bacon that is free of nitrates and additives. Adding onions, chives, and coconut oil to the sweet potatoes and bacon produces a savory dish that is hard to resist.
