Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Honey and Cinnamon

I really am not a big fan of the candied yams with marshmallows on top and never have been. Still, I do like sweet potatoes. I wanted to find a way to make them last Thanksgiving that was simple, but still special. I googled around until I found this recipe from Tyler Florence and I hit the jackpot. They were amazing! They were everyone's favorite part of the meal and have now become the recipe we plan on using every year. As a bonus, they are easy to prepare, and much healthier for you than the usual version.
The recipe below serves 4, so you may need to double or triple the recipe.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Honey and Cinnamon

  • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling potatoes after cooked
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 2 tsp, ground cinnamon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1.  Lay the sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a roasting tray lined with aluminum foil. Drizzle the oil, honey, cinnamon, salt and pepper over the potatoes. 
2.  Roast at 375 for 25 to 30 minutes in oven or until tender.
3.  Take sweet potatoes out of the oven and transfer them to a serving platter. Drizzle with more extra-virgin olive oil before serving.
