That was supposed to be sung to the tune of O Christmas tree! O Christmas tree!  Because before you bake these up the little stacks kinda look like Christmas trees.  It’s true.

AND they’re topped with bacon! Yay, you! Yay, me! Yay, holiday guests!

Scalloped Sweet Potato Stacks with Maple Vanilla Bean Bacon

Yield: 24 sweet potato stacks

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

6 medium sweet potatoes, thinly sliced into rounds (buy sweet potatoes with a diameter similar to that of a muffin tin)
1 cup parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons fresh oregano or rosemary, finely chopped (depending on taste preference)
salt/pepper
4 strips of bacon, cooked & roughly chopped
1/2 of one vanilla bean (I used Rodelle)
3 tablespoons maple syrup

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375ºF.  In a large bowl, toss together sweet potatoes, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, olive oil, butter, oregano, salt/pepper.  Grease muffin tins with cooking spray.  I used two muffin tins for 24 total sweet potato stacks.  In the muffin tins, layer in the sweet potato-parmesan mixture.  The sweet potato stacks will flatten a bit while cooking, so feel free to stack the sweet potato slices high above the top of the muffin tin.  Top with remaining parmesan cheese and bake for 45 minutes, or until a knife easily cuts through them.

While sweet potatoes baking, fry up some bacon in a skillet.  Allow excess oil to drain off on a paper towel.  Chop bacon and place in a bowl.  Scrape the seeds from one vanilla bean and add them to the bowl along with the maple syrup.  Top sweet potatoes stacks with the maple bacon mix and serve!
