Taking a look at my blog feed, it’s not hard to tell I’ve been eating a LOT of sweet potatoes lately. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to not get addicted to them, they are nutritionally sound and if you get creative you can do so much with them. Take this recipe for example, I knew it was a winner by the smell while they were in the oven, so what started out as a side dish quickly became something I ended up eating straight from the pan instead of finishing dinner. What can I say, the heart wants what it wants.
So let’s talk about this recipe for just a minute. You start with some thinly sliced sweet potatoes, add a few savoy ingredients, stack them in a cupcake pan, then throw it in the oven and take out a dish you would swear you could only find in a great restaurant. I’m telling you, if you are looking for something easy to impress your guests (or just yourself), you have found what you are looking for! So go on with your bad cook self, impress yo’self!
