Greg's Sweet Potato & Bacon Pie

sweet potato & bacon pie
Greg often makes sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving. This year he took his recipe to new heights when he decided to add some BACON to the filling. Bravo, maestro!

1 lb sweet potatoes, scrubbed & peeled
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk (low fat is fine)
1 tsp real vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
recipe for bacon sweet potato pie
Ready for the oven
8 strips of bacon, cooked
One 9" pie shell, unbaked

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cube and cook sweet potatoes until tender: Either boil or cook in your microwave oven. Mash the cooked sweet potatoes, then beat in other ingredients except bacon, beating until smooth. Tear bacon into small pieces and gently fold in. Pour mixture into the unbaked pie shell and place on center rack in oven. Bake 1 hour at 350°F or until you can stick a fork or knife in the middle of the pie and withdraw it with no filling attached.  Allow to cool for several minutes before cutting & serving. If desired, top with a dollop of homemade whipped cream.

Zestfully yours,
