Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  • Boil a pot of water over high heat.
  • Add the sweet potato coins to the boiling water and cook until just fork tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from the water and drain well on a towel.
  • Pat the sweet potato coins dry then place on a baking sheet that has been coated with cooking spray.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes, or until really tender.
  • While the potatoes are baking, melt the butter with the minced garlic in the microwave for 20 seconds. Set aside.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and smash gently using a fork.
  • Drizzle the melted garlic butter evenly over each smashed sweet potato coin then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.
  • Sprinkle the parmesan cheese evenly over each coin.
  • Return the baking sheet to the oven and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bottoms are a bit crisp.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
