"Different take on a mashed sweet potato recipe. Kid- and husband-approved! You can use a prepared pesto spread instead of making one from scratch with the basil, almond, lemon juice, and olive oil."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
chicken broth, or as needed to cover
uncured bacon, diced
fresh basil leaves
olive oil, or more to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
This was delicious. I used pre-made pesto since fresh basil is $$ right now. I used turkey bacon. Will definitely make this again
The idea of this recipe sounds like it would be tasty... But the flavor combo of adding the pesto is just too strange. I bet it would be great without the pesto.
These were delicious, but a little salty because of the broth and bacon. Because backing off the bacon would be sacrilege, I used water with half a bouillon cube the next time. Still delicious but not as salty.
