If you read my blog you know that I love roasting vegetables. I decided to roast sweet potatoes with butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. The house smelled amazing while they roasted. They were simple to make and tasted tender, sweet and delicious. I served them with a roasted chicken and salad and it was a very tasty meal. My husband and I really loved these sweet potatoes and the kids did too.
- 3 Sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite size cubes
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp of brown sugar (more if you want it sweeter)
- 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg
- Pinch of ground ginger
- Sea salt, to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a small baking dish with cooking spray. Peel and dice the sweet potatoes into bite size cubes and place in the baking dish. Melt butter in the microwave and pour over the potatoes along with the olive oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt. Add more sugar or cinnamon if desired. Toss to coat evenly.
