Some people have told me that they just can’t get on board with zoodles. I get that. Perhaps zucchini does not appeal to you. Enter Sweet Potato Noodles. You guys, I can’t even begin to tell you how delicious this dish is!!! This is such a simple recipe with just a few ingredients that delivers a lot of flavor!
What You Need
2 large sweet potatoes, spiralized
2 tbsp olive oil for sweet potatoes plus 1-2 tsp for sauce
1/2 to 3/4 of a bag of real bacon bits
2-3 tbsp of red onion, chopped fine
1/2 stick of real butter (I use unsalted to keep sodium down)
1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp of sage
1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg
What You Do
–Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil on medium high in a large skillet. Add sweet potatoes. Saute for 8-10 minutes. If they start to brown, turn the heat down to medium.
–Toss bacon bits in a small separate skillet and cook for 5 minutes until hot and crisp.
–In a small saucepan, heat 1 tsp of olive oil and cook red onions for 2 minutes. Add butter and stir continuously until melted and browned. About 3 minutes.
–Add sage, nutmeg, Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses to butter mixture until cheese is melted.
–Add bacon to sweet potatoes and toss the sauce over it. Serve immediately.

This looks sooooo good. And yuuuuuum, bacon. When do I get my dinner invite?
hmmm. was it hard making the sweet potatoes into noodles? cause i have a hand held one, so if it’s too hard.. i would like to try though.
Uh this is everything I want and more. I NEED a spiralizer now.
Ok, I’m bout to break down and buy a spiralizer soon because this looks AMAZING!! Yum!
Anything you spiralize looks awesome, I want to get one!
Yum yum yum. I think I have some sage in the fridge too.
I’m giving up the work cafeteria for lent – so the sweet potato spirals will definitely be on my meal prep menu!
I haven’t tried the sweet potato yet on the spiralizer but I imagine it’s delish!
SO much yum! I have not gotten a spiralizer yet, because I fear I would be too lazy to use it! But I am definitely thinking I could loosely follow this recipe with thinly sliced potatoes!
I have been hesitant to try a spiralizer since I am so allergic to many, many veggies. But, I can get down with a sweet potato, so I may have to try it!
I need to try to make these! I’ve only made the zucchini noodles!
So I haven’t gotten around to picking up a spiralizer myself yet, and I’ve actually never cooked sweet potatoes! This looks so yummy though. Might have to figure out a way to make it happen 🙂
I have been wanting to try a sweet potato with my Veggetti so bad. This sounds like an easy recipe to try with it too! I’ve been eyeballing everything sweet potato lately. I’m glad you pre-tested so I know it’s good!
Holy amazing ness, I so need to get a spiralizer! These look amazing 🙂
Oh wow, I have GOT to try this!!! <3 – http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com
