Roasted Sweet Potato

I used to make these regularly back in the day.  I'd dress them in olive oil with the seasonings varying each time.  They were an incredible meal accompaniment but since going paleo, I don't indulge in as many starchy foods. I've also stopped cooking with Olive Oil and save it for raw consumption in salads and such.

Enter Bacon Fat

I massaged these puppies with a couple of tablespoons of bacon fat and the flavour was to die for.  Little sweet bacon morsels.  Delish!

Roasted Sweet Potato:

Preheat oven to 400 F
2 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 Tbsp Dried Rosemary
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
2 Tbsp Bacon Fat
Pinches of Sea Salt to taste

Line baking pan with foil and spread out chopped sweet potato.  Sprinkle spices over sweet potato.  You can either throw bacon fat on top or just place it in your hand cause it's going to get messy.  Lovingly massage the bacon fat, coating each morsel until evenly greased.  Throw in the oven for 20 minutes or until tender. 

2 Tbsp Bacon Fat, 1 Tsp Dried Rosemary, 1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder

Add ingredients to chopped sweet potato and massage.
Try not to eat the whole pan
