Ingredients:
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 large sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut crosswise into (1/2-inch) thick rounds
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • Olive spray oil
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or crème fraîche
  • Zest of 1 Satsuma tangerine, clementine or small orange
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (about 1/4 cup)
Method: 
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Bake bacon on a foil-lined baking sheet until almost crisp, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to let drain, and then finely chop.
  2. In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with flour and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Spray a large baking sheet with oil and then arrange sweet potatoes in a single layer. Spray tops with oil and bake on the bottom third of the oven, flipping once, until golden brown and tender, 20 to 25 minutes; set aside to let cool until warm.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together sour cream, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and zest. To serve, top each round of sweet potato with a dollop of sour cream, bacon and green onions.
