Combine diced sweet potatoes and one cup water in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave 3 minutes. Drain in a colander, and shake to release residual water droplets.
Place bacon into a 12” skillet over medium high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until fat renders and the bacon is crisp, 7-8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Add sweet potatoes to the rendered bacon fat, toss to coat in the fat, then spread into a single layer. Saute 5-6 minutes, stirring every 1-2 minutes, until the edges start to brown.
Add onions and garlic. Saute 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add bell pepper and apples. Saute 3-4 minutes more, stirring frequently, until bell peppers are softened but still retain a bite. Sweet potatoes should now be cooked through and onions should be translucent.
Season with salt, pepper, and parsley. Serve immediately.
Storage: store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in a skillet over medium high heat with a splash of olive oil, or in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in-between. Make it Spicy: add a sliced or minced jalapeno with the garlic, or top with sriracha to taste.
