Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I have been making these all the time lately. I came up with this simple treatment for sweet potatoes following the technique in another recipe that uses butternut squash. This method carmalizes and sweetens the potatoes for an extra yummy side that compliments most meals. If you are coming to my house for dinner or Sunday, get ready to try these! You can also use regular potatoes for easy and delicious "fries."


Sweet potatoes
Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Other seasonings as desired (salt and pepper alone is so good that I haven't ventured further, but let me know if you come up with a killer combo)


Cut sweet potatoes into ~1" square pieces. Place in a large bowl. Pour in just enough oil to coat all potato pieces. Salt and pepper to taste, stirring to mix well. Place potato pieces on a regular (not non-stick) baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 30-40 minutes or until outsides are starting to brown and the insides are tender. Enjoy!
