Blue Ribbon Recipe

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! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Step-by-Step
