Recipe: Sweet Potato Wedges with Goat Cheese Bacon Dip

I'm not going to say anything to you about this recipe except for you're welcome, because it is beautiful and it came to me in a vision the way I picture saints appearing to people in burlap cassocks, standing on old rocky hills somewhere in Italy. 

There's a restaurant in the DC area that I love that has a whipped feta dip with hunks of jalapeno in it, and it is so good but it's a bit too much dairy for me. They also serve it with pita bread, and I had to have cucumbers which is fine, I guess, but I thought I'd make my own version that wouldn't make me feel sick or deprived in any way.

I made my dish more Paleo by using goat cheese instead of feta and then adding bacon, obviously.

For the sweet potato wedges:
Two sweet potatoes 
(Make more if you want, but you'll run out of dip.)
A liberal drizzle of olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the goat cheese bacon dip:
A four-ounce package of plain goat cheese.
Two green onions
Two teaspoons of coconut milk
(More coconut milk if you want your dip to be thinner.)
Four strips of crunchy bacon.
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Two or three shakes of crushed red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper, to taste

1. Take the goat cheese out of the fridge, out of the wrapper, and into a bowl to get to room temperature.
2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
3. Wash your sweet potatoes really well. Leave the skins on if you want (I think you should) and scrub them!
4. Cut each sweet potato into eight wedges, lay on a baking sheet, and drizzle olive oil over them. 
5. Spread the oil around with your hands and get each wedge really covered. Add salt and pepper.
6. Pop 'em in the oven for about 25 minutes, turning them every ten minutes or so.

7. With a hand mixer, whip the goat cheese up until it's a little fluffy, and add the coconut milk. Whip some more.
8. Add salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, and garlic powder. Whip it!
9. Add crumbled bacon and sliced green onion. Whip it good!
10. Put the dip in a bowl and serve with sweet potato wedges. 

Now dip the sweet potato in or smear some of it over the wedge with a knife.
You could also totally use this as a topping on a baked sweet potato.
But I wanted fries.

Seriously, bring this to a holiday party.
