Camp fire Sweet Potatoes

I have been in the mood for some dutch oven potatoes lately but it has been too rainy to have a fire outside.  So I thought I would try to do them in the oven.  I was really happy when they turned out great!




ingredients:
3 to 4 sweet potatoes
1 yellow onion
1/2 package of bacon
salt
pepper

Preheat the oven to 350.  Cut the bacon into 1 1/2 inch pieces and fry in a pan.  Get them just a bit crispier than you like bacon because they will soften up.  While the bacon is frying cut up the sweet potato and onion in large pieces.  Mix all ingredients together in a large casserole dish and bake till the sweet potatoes are soft.  I had to turn mine once just to make sure they cooked evenly.

These were almost better the next day.  I used smoked bacon and they tasted just like the ones we make up at the cabin.
