Do you try different recipes for your holiday meal or stick to the tried-and-true? I try to sneak one new recipe or food into these time-intensive dinners. I mean, why not? All that work should include a little adventure, yah? Below is the roasted sweet potato recipe that is a combination of roasted veggie recipes and the classic sweet potato casserole thingy w/marshmallows (which is NOT a family favorite around here, lol).
Did you experiment this Thanksgiving or are you thinking about some new recipes for December? Do you have a guinea pig recipe to share?
My sister is the Dip Queen and she has a new recipe that I am ever-so-patiently waiting for…….
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
3-4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite sizes
1 T. olive oil, any kind – EVOO for extra flavor
1 T. butter, melted
1 T. honey
cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla sugar, and salt to taste
Mix olive oil, butter, and honey in a medium size mixing bowl. Dump in the sweet potato chunks and coat evenly. Sprinkle with your spices, sugar, and salt.
Spread onto a Pam’d baking sheet.
Bake at 350 for 40-60 minutes (until fork tender). It really depends on the size of the potato chunks. Stir about halfway through the baking time.
Disclaimer: No guinea pigs were harmed in these experiments. Nor is there any guinea pig meat in this recipe. 😀
