A revised approach to an old traditional favorite, sweet potatoes. Roasted vegetables preserve the nutritional value and add a sweet savory taste to the Grande Dame of the South, the sweet potato.

What a different way to have roasted sweet potatoes. The marriage of turmeric and nutmeg with the Creole seasoning in this easy side holiday dish recipe is amazing. Creole seasoning gives the sweet potatoes a slight kick and savoriness. Turmeric and nutmeg sound like a strange seasoning but really works with the natural flavor of the sweet potato. Honey drizzled on top adds just enough sweetness. These will be a big hit at your holiday table! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash, peel and cube fresh sweet potatoes.
  2. Place paper towels on a large sheet pan and dry the sweet potatoes. Remove paper towels. Drizzle the sweet potatoes with extra virgin olive oil.
  3. Mix dry seasoning together in a large plastic bag.
  4. Scoop the sweet potatoes into the bag with the seasoning mixture and shake bag until evenly coated.
