**Tips and Techniques for the Best Maple Bacon Sweet Potato Hash

•Try to cut your sweet potatoes into as evenly-sized pieces as possible. This will help them all cook at the same rate so that you don’t end up with mushy and/or hard pieces of potato.

•Cut the bacon all at once by placing it in one large stack. To do this, simply open the package of bacon and remove it all as one big piece. Then, cut through every piece, all at once, into 1/2-inch slices.

•Bacon will crisp up more as it cools so be careful not to overcook it. Remove it from the skillet when it is just starting to look as if it’s getting crispy.

•This recipe is easy to modify. Add an onion, an apple, or both to change up the flavor just a bit. If you love eggs cooked within your hash, go for it!
