We eat a lot of sweet potatoes around here. They are not only delicious, but healthy too!
We mainly bake them in the oven and cover them in butter and cinnamon sugar. (Okay, this may not be THAT healthy).
I was looking to cook them in a more savory way and came up with this delicious spice mix.
Here is what I did…
Cube about 5-6 cups of sweet potatoes.
Lay them out in one layer on a sheet pan.
In a small bowl or ramekin, mix together 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon course black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder.
Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the sweet potatoes and toss the potatoes with the seasoning.
Top the sweet potatoes with 3 tablespoons of cubed butter and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes or until tender.
