Cheesy Bacon Sweet Potato Casserole

0.5 hour
25 min


  • 5 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4 to 1/2-inch pieces
  • 6 slices Coleman Natural Bacon
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons butter at room temperature
Use Monterey Jack cheese in place of cheddar.


1 Preheat an oven to 325° F. Coat an oven-proof, 2-quart baking dish with butter; set aside.

2 Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside until cool enough to handle.

3 Meanwhile, place the bacon in a cast iron or other heavy-bottomed skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Once cool enough to handle, chop the bacon coarsely; set aside.

4 Spread potatoes evenly in the prepared baking dish and top with cheese.

5 Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven; sprinkle the potatoes and cheese with the bacon. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

6 You may refrigerate leftovers for up to two days. Allow casserole to come back to room temperature before reheating in the oven at for 350° F for 10 minutes.
