Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Brown Sugar Glaze
Seriously, my kids are getting tired of sweet potatoes!
We are having them at least once a week!
First, it's the season for this great vegetable.
Second, they're $0.25 a pound!
That's practically free!
Yesterday, I was trying to think of a vegetable to put with our lunch and I had one lonely sweet potato left.
What a lonely number!
What can one potato do for a family of 4?
It can make us happy!
I washed it,
tossed it with olive oil,
and then crowned it!
We all devoured this delicious new side dish!
Roasted Sweet Potatoes w/ Brown Sugar Glaze
(Slightly Adapted from Pillsbury)
1-3 sweet potatoes, (depending on the number of people you are serving & the size of the potato)**
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons milk
1 teaspoon corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Wash, peel, and cube the sweet potatoes. Toss with a small amount of olive oil. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and roast until golden and done.
While the potatoes are cooking, place the butter, brown sugar, milk, and corn syrup in a pan over medium heat. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Mixture will slightly thicken. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon. Keep warm until ready to pour over the potatoes.
Remove potatoes from the oven and place in a serving bowl. Drizzle the syrup mixture over the potatoes and toss to coat.
***The butter, brown sugar, milk, syrup, and cinnamon is enough to cover 2-3 potatoes! For my extremely large, one potato, I cut the syrup mixture in half and it was plenty!!!
