Maple Sweet Potato Home Fries Recipe

Maple Sweet Potato Home Fries

I am always on the hunt for new recipes to try. Bloggers are a great resource for recipes, making the hunt so much easier. Earlier this month one of the blogs, I follow, Simply Stacie posted a recipe for Sweet Potato Home Fries. My family eats a lot of sweet potatoes. I wanted to give the recipe a try, with our own special twist, maple syrup! I hope you enjoy it! Be sure to pin it and share with your friends!

Maple Sweet Potato Home Fries


  • 6 slices of bacon cooked and diced
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 medium sweet Vidalia onion sliced thin
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Maple Syrup to taste


  1. Heat olive oil over medium in saute pan.
  2. Add sweet potatoes and cook for approx 8 mins.
  3. Add the onion and continue to cook for another 5 – 7 mins or until potatoes are tender.
  4. Add cooked bacon, salt and pepper.
  5. Remove potatoes from heat and plate.
  6. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve.

We made the home fries as part of breakfast for dinner. I could eat sweet potatoes all day long. The maple syrup gives them just the right amount of sweetness.
