  • 1 sweet potato
  • 4 strips thick cut bacon apple wood smoked
  • ½ cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 toothpicks


  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard


  • Place 1 cup of water in the Ninja Foodi or Instant Pot. Place the sweet potato on the rack or in the basket and pressure cook on high for 15 minutes* see post for details on size of sweet potatoes. When the time is up, do an immediate release.
  • While the sweet potato is pressure cooking, mix up the glaze by whisking together the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and dijon mustard in a small bowl.
  • Let the sweet potato cool until you can handle it comfortably. Dump the water from the inner pot.
  • Slice the ends off of the sweet potato and cut 4 equal sections that are about 1 ¼-1½" in size. Remove the sweet potato peel which should just fall off. You want the bacon to extend about ¼" above the sweet potato which creates a lip for the glaze to sit in.
  • Wrap each sweet potato wheel in the thick cut bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place a non-stick mat or a parchment round or even foil (poke some holes in it so the bacon grease drains some)in the basket or on the rack and set the sweet potato wheels on top.
  • Spoon the glaze on the top of each sweet potato. Don't worry if some drips off the sides, it will coat the bacon and candy the bacon as it cooks.
  • Close the crisping lid and select air crisp on 330°F/165°C or the closest temperature to that on your appliance. Air Crisp/Air Fry for 20-25 minutes.
  • Add about a Tablespoon of marshmallows on top of each sweet potato wheel. Broil for about 5 minutes. Remove and allow to cool slightly. Remove the tooth picks before serving.
  • Serve & Enjoy!
