Maple Bacon Sweet Potato Sliders

Wait, what?! Thanksgiving is NEXT week already. If you’re like we are over here, we have been planning planning planning! I generally keep it rather simple for my appetizers. Lately I am all about the perfect cheese board for my family and friends. I wanted one more fun appetizer that I could also turn into a spin on the traditional sweet potato mash side dish. These beauties arose. Sweet potato sliders!

Remember these? Those are one of my football Sunday favorites, so naturally a spin on them for the holidays was just what I wanted!


Creamy, flavorful, sweet potato topping piped onto a nice slider bottom and topped with bacon. Sign me up. I love that these can go from the appetizer table to the sides with your turkey!

Versatile, baby!
