2-3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ½” pieces
1 T bacon drippings or olive oil
2 medium sweet onions, cut into ½” pieces
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
1-2 sprigs of marjoram, stripped and leaves chopped (plus more for garnish)
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste

You will also need:
Large pot of salted water
Large saute pan

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the sweet potatoes and cook until tender, about 5-6 minutes.  Drain, pat dry and set aside.

Heat a large saute pan over medium heat.  Add the bacon drippings and let melt. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned – about 10-12 minutes.  Add the sweet potatoes and minced garlic and cook over medium-high heat until the sweet potatoes start to get a little brown – about 3-5 minutes.  Add the chopped marjoram and season with salt and pepper, to taste

Serves 8. 

This recipe pairs well with slow-roasted pork.
