The real question I have is, do you eat it in one sitting? I legit am going to make this

I used thick cut bacon and used the whole package, not just 6 pieces. I got a bottle of mixed herbs at the store and it had fennel in it which I think really made it. Something I would do differently next time is boil or microwave my sweet potatoes a little before layering them in the dish. The top layer didnít cook all the way. You have to try this. It was very filling too. I thought I was going to tear through it but ate half as much as I thought.
