  • Place the jicama in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Place in preheated oven. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the jicama over. Bake another 10 minutes or until the jicama is softened
  • Remove from the oven. Sprinkle the cheese and crumbled bacon over the top of the jicama. Place back into the oven and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted.
