🏠 | Sweet Home Potato Fries

I have an extremely big weakness to fries, so eating with the Paleo diet can be a bit frustrating at times. Fortunately, I’ve grown to like sweet potatoes more (they are Paleo-approved), and they’re a pretty awesome substitute for regular potatoes. I decided to make these sweet potato home fries with bacon (I LOVE BACON SAFLKSAF), just because I figured that using the bacon fat would give the potatoes a ton more flavor, and also just because it’s natural :) If you would rather not include bacon (WHY??), that’s totally fine, and you can just substitute the bacon fat with any other oil.


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/2 of an onion
  • 3 slices of bacon *optional*
  • Bacon fat (from the bacon) *optional* or any other oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Dash of cayenne (optional)
  • Any other seasonings (optional)


  1. Heat the frying pan to medium heat
  2. Add the bacon to the pan and cook render out the fat
  3. Remove the bacon and chop them into small bite size pieces
  4. Add the sweet potatoes, and season with salt, pepper and any other spices
  5. Add the onions when the sweet potatoes are cooked halfway, but if you want crispier you can throw them in earlier
  6. Add the bacon back in and stir everything together
