Sweet Potato Bacon Bites

Makes 2 dozen
Topped with crisp bacon, green onions and sour cream, these baked sweet potato hors d’oeuvres could be crowned the champion of your next cocktail party. For best results, look for sweet potatoes that are long and thin, roughly 2 1/2 inches wide.
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 large sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut crosswise into (1/2-inch) thick rounds
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • Olive spray oil
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or crème fraîche
  • Zest of 1 Satsuma tangerine, clementine or small orange
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (about 1/4 cup)

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Bake bacon on a foil-lined baking sheet until almost crisp, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to let drain, and then finely chop.  

In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with flour and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Spray a large baking sheet with oil and then arrange sweet potatoes in a single layer. Spray tops with oil and bake on the bottom third of the oven, flipping once, until golden brown and tender, 20 to 25 minutes; set aside to let cool until warm.  

In a small bowl, stir together sour cream, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and zest. To serve, top each round of sweet potato with a dollop of sour cream, bacon and green onions.
