In his cooking series, Nick Massie prepares meals showing how to apply the CrossFit dietary prescription of meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. In this segment, Massie wraps bacon around sweet potatoes to make a delicious side dish.
Massie steams the sweet potatoes by wrapping them in foil and roasting them on a sheet pan for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes in a 350 F oven. Then he allows the potatoes to rest and cool.
“We’re going to have a really moist skin and a moist inner,” he says.
After the sweet potatoes have cooled, Massie peels off the skin, trims them, and then slices each into discs. He wraps each puck in bacon. Next, he sears the side with the bacon seam for about five minutes, then flips them and continues cooking for 3 to 4 minutes or until the bacon is crisp.
“These are good cooled down, just kind of like finger food, something to snack on, something that’s nice and healthy,” Massie says. “If you put a dish full of these at the Christmas or the Thanksgiving table, (it) won’t last long.”
