I was talking to my friend on Saturday about how I didn’t plan any recipes yet for meal prep and she sent me this recipe she made last week! We both tweaked the original recipe and used sweet potatoes instead of russet potatoes, as the original recipes calls for. I also ended up adding ground turkey to the meal, so I just went ahead and updated the recipe below with the ingredients I used and instructions with what I did. Check out the link at the bottom for the original recipe if you would like to compare. Anyways, I ended up doubling what I listed below to get approximately 9 total meals (I make extra meals for my mom). Since I made so much, I opted for roasting the sweet potatoes separately while everything else was cooking on the stove top. The amount of bacon and sweet potatoes to use is really up to you. I typically use the same amount of bacon strips as meals I want to make. The key is just having enough bacon fat to cook the rest of the meal in because that really made everything taste delicious. For such a makeshift recipe, I really ended up enjoying this one!
