Step 1

Heat oven to 400° F.

In a large bowl, add the sweet potatoes, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Toss to evenly coat the sweet potatoes. Arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast the sweet potatoes for about 10 – 15 minutes or until they are soft but not mushy. Remove from the oven and set off to the side.

Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil in a large saute pan. Add the bacon and place the pan over medium heat to slowly render the fat. When the bacon has started to get crispy and brown, add the onions, season with salt and saute until the onions are very soft and aromatic. Add the apples and the scallion whites and saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the sweet potatoes, and saute until the sweet potatoes are cooked through and starting to become crispy, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with the scallion greens and pumpkin seeds.
