Roasted Sweet Potato Cinnamon Slices

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

It doesn't get much easier than this one! Slices of sweet potatoes baked on a cookie sheet! Perfect for a side dish, appetizer or snack at lunchtime. Sweet enough not to do a thing to them but these are sure to please that cinnamon lover and spice up the Holiday table!

2 large Sweet potatoes washed and sliced around 1/2 inch thick

Baking cookie sheet

Cooking oil spray

Garnish for the topping as shown in photo:
melted butter

Optional Method 2: Honey or light Karo syrup sprinkled with cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Spray your cookie sheet with cooking oil. Lay the slices on the cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter. Bake in your preheated oven turning once for around 45 minutes sometime less of more depending on the thickness. Pierce the middle with a fork to see if he goes in easy and they are done!

Option Method 2: Drizzle with honey or syrup just a little on each and sprinkle with cinnamon and this is optional you do not have to use anything else but butter. Baked same as directions above for time and heat with an exception, I would put these on a parchment-lined cookie sheet for ease of cleaning.

While baking make the cinnamon sugar to sprinkle on each when making option 1:

In the meantime mix cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl and while these are warm using a shaker, evenly coat the potatoes with that mixture. Turn them over and shake the other side. The cinnamon and sugar will melt a little on the slices to coat them. Place in a covered bowl to keep warm until ready to serve.

Note to make the cinnamon and sugar and keep in a handy shaker jar:

Cinnamon Sugar Mix

1 cup of sugar
2-3 tablespoons cinnamon

Combine dry spices and seal in Ziploc or vacuum seal bag (or jar). Measure all into a Ziploc bag, seal shake to combine. Pour into a spice jar that has holes at the top for easy sprinkling.
