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 lunch time. 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 show in photo:
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 mean time 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 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.
