So who ever dreamed that we'd be enjoying a February weekend with sunshine and 70 degree temps? My hubby just looked at me in horror when I asked him if we could get just a FEW pieces of our patio set out from storage for the weekend...but can you ever remember such wonderful weather this early in the year? It's time to celebrate!
And these Brown Sugar Bacon & Brie Sweet Potato Fries are the perfect appetizer for enjoying a winter weekend on the deck! The perfect little snack - sweet, salty, spicy and with just a little bit of kick!
A quick look in the fridge, freezer and pantry, and we are good to go on this one!
Caramelized bacon - need I say more? Simply dip both sides of your bacon into a mixture of brown sugar, smoked paprika, dried mustard and spicy cayenne pepper. Bake for just a few minutes until the bacon is crisp and the sugar has caramelized. You may want to go ahead and double this up, and it did tend to mysteriously disappear from the counter while it was cooling down! Perfect not only for this recipe, but also good crumbled on top of a salad!
These are perfect for game day, but also something that is pretty darn delicious with a glass of wine!
I use all natural Alexia Waffle Cut Sweet Potato Seasoned Fries, which are savory, thick and warm, and have the just right amount of crunch and tender potato.
Even my kiddos that don't care for sweet potatoes LOVE these!
Totally tantalizing, totally delicious! Hope that you'll enjoy these as much as we do - and we are totally hoping for more sunny and warm days in February. Shocker!
