Rosemary Bacon Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes
It’s December which means its twice baked sweet potato season!! Okay okay you got me, that’s not a real thing because it’s always a good time to make these. I wanted to make a super simple and delicious version filled with my favorite things – bacon and rosemary! These are whole30 complaint without the cheese but if you really want a treat, add gruyere cheese on top and your life will change. These are great to make in a big batch for a family dinner or you can even eat what you want and freeze any leftover.
I don’t know about you but I am SO pumped it is December and our house is decorated! Having a house filled with twinkly lights makes me so happy and filled with joy. It really makes me want to a full on decorations for every season of the year, but then I remember we barely have enough storage space as is right now! Oh well a girl can dream. The cooler weather has gotten me excited about making warm home cooked meals again and testing out flavor combinations that Ruthie hasn’t tried yet. She loves this combo which isn’t surprising because she loves sweet potato anything! Just like her mama.
The cheese!!! It’s just too good.
