Cinnamon roasted sweet potatoes

Compliments of

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 T fresh lime juice (optional-I didn't use it)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and pour the oil to a 9x13 baking dish and place in the oven for about 5 minutes.

Add the potatoes to the oiled dish and bake for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.  In a small bowl mix together the cinnamon, brown sugar, salt and pepper.

After the 20 minutes is up, remove potatoes and sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture and mix to coat.  Return to oven and roast for another 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender, stirring as necessary to allow them to brown evenly.

Remove from oven and transfer potatoes to a paper towel to drain the oil.  Serve immediately.

The end result?  Pretty tasty!  It made a large serving and I had some for leftover the next day and they tasted just as good reheated.
