Roasted S+S Sweet Potatoes (Spicy + Sweet)

Pictured with my roasted bbq boneless pork spare rib recipe

Hi everyone,

It has been a little while since I shared any recipes (I have been busy with life, homework, and moving across the country to start a new nursing travel assignment).

Anyway, I thought I would share a delicous side dish (which is perfect for this fall weather here in the midwest). This is a roasted sweet potato side dish mixed with olive oil, hot and sweet spices, salt and pepper, onions, BACON, slivered almonds, and feta cheese. This will make your mind and stomach very happy.

Enjoy and happy fall 🙂


  • 1-2 sweet potatoes skin on – scrubbed well. Cut into bite size “squares”
  • 2 slices of thick cut bacon – cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil (or ghee, butter, or avocado oil)
  • 1/2 of a yellow onion diced (optional but so good!)
  • salt and pepper to liking
  • 1 tsp of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp (or adjust to liking) red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of paprika
  • 3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup of slivered almonds
  • feta (or any cheese of your choice) for topping
  • parsley for topping (optional)
Ingredients before going into pre-heated oven


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit
  • Wash and dice sweet potato and onion (if using)
  • Cut bacon into small pieces
  • Add potato, onion, bacon, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, brown sugar, paprika, and garlic to sheet pan or oven proof pan
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes then drop temperature to 375 (perfect time to cook my boneless bbq pork spare ribs 😉
  • Add in slivered almonds
  • Cook for an additional 15 minutes or until potatoes are cooked to your liking
  • Top with cheese and parsley (and add additional salt and pepper if needed)
  • ENJOY!!! (best with my BBQ roasted pork spare ribs)
