Recipe: Bacon and Slaw Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries

Ok, let’s talk about sweet potato fries. And bacon. And sweet potatoes and bacon together in one meal. I’m not sure if there’s a better combination out there (sorry, peanut butter and jelly). I can’t do this sweet-and-salty decadence justice with words, so you’re going to have to take this one into your own kitchens.
