I love casseroles because they’re quick and easy to make and serve. There are a million different ways to make sweet potatoes, but this is my new favorite. Melt in your mouth sweet potatoes coated in cheese and bacon, what’s not to love?

How to make sweet potato casserole

  • To start, prep your bacon & cheese. (If you’ve never cooked bacon in the oven, let’s change that now. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay bacon on foil. Set your oven to 400 degrees and place bacon in the oven while the oven is preheating. Check after 15 minutes and if not crispy, cook for about 5 minutes more. You’re welcome).
  • Peel & wash your sweet potatoes and then dice into small cubes.
  • Make sure your hands are clean because this recipe mixes together best using your hands instead of a spoon.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine cubed potatoes, crumbled bacon & shredded cheese.
  • Add in oil, salt and pepper and toss together till well combined.
  • Grease your 8×8 inch baking dish (I use coconut oil) and then fill dish with sweet potato mixture.
  • Dot the top of your casserole with butter, cover in aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour covered and then 15 minutes uncovered.
