Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Soy Sauce, Maple, and Bacon
My mom only ate sweet potatoes for dessert. She’d throw one in the microwave and dig in. No butter, no sweetened condensed milk, nothing. I kept telling her, “Mom, that’s not dessert, that’s a potato.” For a while I thought this reflected our cultural divide. She grew up in the Philippines, where inherently sweet ingredients like corn went into desserts. I grew up in Chicago, where corn was buttered and salted and beans went into burritos. But when I started working in restaurants during Thanksgiving, I saw what the white boys and black guys I worked with made, and I was confused all over again. As I watched them pile the brown sugar and marshmallows on sweet potatoes, I was thinking, “That’s just pie without the crust.”Maybe, then, it’s just me who likes a more savory preparation. Here, there’s as much soy sauce as there is maple syrup. A last-minute shower of crumbled bacon drives the point home.Excerpted from the book ASIAN-AMERICAN by Dale Talde with JJ Goode.
