A note about serious food allergies

We're bringing you our best in this meal, with the funkiest and most fabulous of cheeses, blue, mixed with the best thing life has to give us, bacon, mixed with the thing that makes all food taste good, butter, all piled atop a luscious steak. Is this the best? It's got to be close to it. Tip: Having trouble cutting that wobbly sweet potato? Trim off 1/4" along its length and cut that section into 1/2" dice. Turn sweet potato onto its flat side. You now have a flat base to work from while you dice remaining sweet potato.

Reserve ¼ cup potato cooking water. Drain sweet potato in a colander and transfer to a mixing bowl. Add seasoned salt, 2 tsp.olive oil, and half the potato cooking water to mixing bowl. Mash until smooth. If too thick, add remaining potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover with foil and set aside. While sweet potato boils, crisp bacon.

    Crisp the Bacon

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add bacon to hot pan and stir constantly until crispy, 4-5 minutes. Transfer bacon to towel-lined plate and let cool, 5 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
