We love to roast sweet potatoes. We probably do this once a week. It is healthy, Ellison can eat it, and they are yummy.
I cut the sweet potatoes into about 1-inch pieces. One large sweet potatoe is plenty for Michael, Ellison, and I. I put them on a cookie sheet, with a drizzle of olive oil, and I season with garlic powder and pepper. Bake at 400 for 25 minutes, then I like to finish with a broil so that they get a little crisp so 500 for about 10 minutes. Toss 2 or 3 times while baking. They should be soft like a fry.
On a funny note, I saw that on Pinterest you can slice potatoes with an apple slicer. Well since we do this allll the time, I thought why not! ...BUT this is why not. haha. I should have known that they only meant regular potatoes. Woops :). Note: I cut both my hands, banged the slicer into my chest and slammed my head onto the counter. Major woops. :).
