Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes with Bacon and Caramelized Onions

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and my family went crazy over it. It is simple, looks great on the table and has already been requested for Christmas dinner! This recipe can be adjusted as you like by adding more or less bacon and onions.
