For her Roasted Sweet Potatoes recipe, Pam chops them into bite sized chunks and coats them in olive oil and butter. These melted fats soften the surface of the sweet potato, and as the butter cooks in with the brown sugar, ground cinnamon and ground ginger, ground nutmeg and sea salt they are the catalyst that brings this wonderful alchemy of ingredients together, to brown and sweeten the sweet potatoes into an undeniably rich, yet healthy and nutritious side dish recipe.

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and coating a small baking pan with some nonstick cooking spray. Peel and cut up the sweet potatoes into bit sized cubes and place them in the prepared baking dish. Then melt some butter in the microwave, and pour this over the sweet potatoes with the other ingredients. You can add more brown sugar and cinnamon to the recipe if you would like. Then toss the sweet potatoes evenly to coat. Bake the sweet potato recipe in the oven for approximately sixty minutes. Stir the potatoes at least once or twice while they are roasting. This is such an easy side dish recipe to make, one that the whole family will love.

Sweet potatoes are mostly enjoyed in the fall, but there's no limit when it comes to comfort, so if you can find them in the produce aisle, why not give this recipe a try any time of year?
