Savory Sweet Potato Muffins with Bacon

Recipe by  

"When I lived in New Zealand, there was an abundance of kumara (their version of our sweet potato) and it was used in everything from curries to muffins. I came up with this recipe to fuse those two ideas, but mainly to appeal to my then 2-year-old, a picky eater who loved finger foods. I serve it with fruit for a complete meal."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups with butter. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Place sweet potato and bacon on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes; flip sweet potato and bacon. Bake until sweet potato is tender and bacon is crisp, about 20 more minutes. Let bacon cool on paper towels.
  4. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion until soft and translucent, about 10 minutes.
  5. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, curry powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Stir in Cheddar cheese until coated.
  6. Peel sweet potato and transfer to a bowl; roughly mash. Measure out 1 cup of mashed sweet potato. Chop bacon and stir into onion.
  7. Whisk eggs vigorously in a separate bowl. Add milk, sour cream, and butter; whisk until smooth. Fold in 1 cup sweet potato, bacon, and onions. Gently stir the sweet potato mixture into the flour mixture, using a rubber spatula, until just combined. Pour batter into the prepared muffin tin.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 18 minutes. Cool muffins in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I really wanted to like this recipe, but the flavors ended up muddled. No one would guess this was sweet potatoes. Most of the folks from work who tried this thought a little sugar might help boost the flavors
