Sweet Potato Casserole with Bacon

A sweet and delicious casserole loaded with bacon.
Servings 6


  • Oven
  • Baking Dish
  • Skillet


  • 4 pieces Sweet potatoes quartered
  • 4 slices Bacon
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup Light cream
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • Salt and ground black pepper


  • Preheat an oven to 325 F (165 C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish; set aside.
  • Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender for about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry until cool enough to handle.
  • Meanwhile, place the bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally for about 10 minutes until evenly browned and crisp. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Chop the bacon coarsely; set aside.
  • Slip the skins off the potatoes and discard; blend the potatoes in an electric blender or food processor until smooth. Stir in the butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, cream, and milk. Mix well; season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread the potato mixture in the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 18 minutes or until heated through. Remove from the oven; sprinkle the potatoes with the bacon. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
