Ingredients

  • 1

    sweet potato
  • 6

    oz bacon
  • 2

    tbsp unsalted butter
  •   
    kosher salt
  •   
    freshly ground black pepper
  • 1

Directions

    • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Roast whole sweet potato for 35-55 minutes, or until the potato is tender (to microwave, pierce the sweet potato with a fork and cook in a microwave-safe dish for about 8 minutes on high, turning once).
    • 2 While the sweet potato cooks, place the bacon in a cold pan and set over medium high heat. Brown the bacon, flipping occasionally, so it browns evenly. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Crumble bacon once cooled.
    • 3 When the sweet potato is fork tender, slice in half and spread with butter. Season with salt and pepper, top with mushroom risotto, and garnish with bacon crumbles.
