Roasted Sweet Potato & Turkey Bacon Hummus Dip & Deviled Eggs

  • Remove shells from boiled eggs & slice in half length-wise. Remove cooked yolks. When cooled down, remove the skins from the sweet potatoes. In a medium sized mixing bowl, add sweet potato, hummus, egg yolks, olive oil & sour cream and use immersion hand blender on medium-low to blend ingredients to nice thick, creamy texture. (*You can also do this in a blender*)
  • Add turkey slices to a paper towel & fold in half to cover the bacon then place on a microwave safe plate. Heat bacon in microwave on 1 minute intervals until desired crispiness. To achieve a turkey bacon bits level crispness, our cook time was about 3 mins (each microwave will vary). Once the bacon is cooled, break up into small bits.

  • Lay empty egg whites out on your serving dish. One at a time, add about a tablespoon size of the dip. Sprinkle a pinch of turkey bacon & fresh thyme on each. Serve immediately or cover with saran and refrigerate.
  • Transfer the remainder of the dip mixture to your serving bowl. Sprinkle turkey bacon bits & fresh thyme. Serve with mini pita, naan or artisan crackers. Enjoy!

Notes

If you're not up for the added steps of roasting the sweet potatoes, you could also boil them.  However, you'll need to add some seasoning (dried sage, thyme & garlic powder) to the dip mixture to achieve a similar taste.
