This recipe was floating around the Internets today using white potatoes. I wanted to give it a cleaner spin by using sweet potatoes.
1. Rinse and peel sweet potatoes
2. Slice almost all the way through
3. Drizzle with some olive oil
4. Sprinkle with s&p
5. Top with just a little butter, I chose Kerrygold unsalted butter
6. Bake at 425° for 40 minutes.
I planned to make a bacon wrapped pork loin and garlicky asparagus, thought this might be a tasty addition to add to my plate. The sweet potatoes added just the prefect amount of sweeteness and the right amount of crunch to my dinner.
Simple & delicious. AND you can cook multiple potatoes at once. Perfect for an evening meal and then my lunchbox for work the next day. This will be making an appearance in the not too distant future.
Check out these crispy baked sweet potatoes this week. Try them with a little butter, real maple syrup, and cinnamon. How about some almond butter. What about a Sprinkle of Italian or pizza seasoning and perhaps a little beef. The possibilities are endless.
