Honey Roasted Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are not only for the fall and thanksgiving so when dinner time approaches, and I find myself looking for something other than basic rice to pair with a meal these honey roasted sweet potatoes definitely delivers.

My obsession with sweet potatoes is probably unnatural- and I don’t care!!!! Sweet Potatoes are so interchangeable, you can literally turn them into anything. From sweet desserts like sweet potato pie to savory side dishes like the one I’m sharing now, there’s so much that this orange root vegetable can do that I have to share just one of my favorite ways to prepare it.

I came up with this recipe as my two kids were reluctant to try the potatoes until I added a little sweetener (a mom’s gotta do what a momma’s gotta do)! You can make this recipe any day of the week, it’s simple and easy to prepare and only requires 5 additional ingredients besides the potatoes themselves. For this recipe in addition to the potatoes you’ll need; ground cinnamon, salt, honey, olive oil & parsley. Mix it up, roast it, let it cool and serve it.

I will warn you though… before dinnertime, I left these out and couldn’t help myself and just kept snacking and snacking. If you cut them small enough they become little sweet & savory poppers!

Notes

Wrecking Tips:

Every so often about 2-3x I take out the pan to stir the potatoes making sure not they don’t stick to the bottom.
