Try adding candied bacon to sweet potato pie. It seems like a strange combination but once you try this you'll never doubt this wonderful combination in a pie!
Toss the bacon with brown sugar and maple syrup. Cook in a pan on medium-high heat until crisp stirring and moving continually, about 6-7 minutes. Drain and cool completely.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine the sweet potato, milk, egg, and maple syrup in the blender. Add the spices. Pour into the crust. Bake for 15 minutes. Decrease oven to 350 degrees and add all but 1 tablespoon bacon to the top of the pie. Remaining bacon will be used as garnish. Bake for an additional 35-45 minutes until set. Pie can be made earlier in the day or even the day before. Top with whipped cream.
Whip cream for 3-4 minutes using an electric hand mixer. Add maple syrup and cinnamon. Whip until stiff peaks form. Spread on top of pie. Top with remaining candied bacon.
