HOW TO MAKE MAPLE CINNAMON ROASTED SWEET POTATOES
Sweet Potatoes - These are the darker sweet potatoes with the orange/brown skin.
Olive Oil - I use extra-virgin olive oil to avoid that heavy olive taste that regular olive oil has.
Salt & Pepper
MY TIPS FOR ROASTED SWEET POTATOES
- If you are wanting to double the recipe then use two different cookie sheet pans. I would suggest not trying to stick a double recipe on one pan because you don't want them touching at all while they are baking.
- Make sure the potatoes are not touching (as best as you can) when you spread them on the pan. You don't want to steam the potatoes, you want them separated so each side can get that crispy charred exterior.
- Depending on how small or large you cut the potatoes will determine the cook time. I cut them into larger bite-sized pieces, about 1-inch big.
- I would suggest using extra-virgin olive oil as it does not have that heavy olive taste to it.
