Yummy Fall Treats

 ~ Butter & Brown Sugar Roasted Sweet Potatoes ~

I was surfing the world of Pinterest yesterday and found an interesting recipe for sweet potatoes.  I love sweet potatoes, especially the yam version!  It was super easy and turned out to be delicious! Mom, if you're reading this (and I hope you are), I want to make this for Thanksgiving dinner!!!!!

3 sweet potatoes peeled and cut into bit size cubes
2 tsp olive oil (I used 2 tbsp because my dish was large)
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp brown sugar (more if you want sweeter…I think I used 3!)
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Pour olive oil into dish and spread
Melt butter in pan and add brown sugar and cinnamon
Put diced potatoes into dish and pour over with syrup

Bake for 60 minutes and voila ~
 This is the picture from Pinterest...

...this is my version (not quite as pretty...but I'm not a pro-photographer either!)

I think I diced the pieces up a little too small, so next time I will make them chunkier.  I would also add a fourth potato, because my pyrex dish is probably larger than the recipe called for.

I had it with my dinner tonight and it was absolutely yummy!  The smell resonated in the office and made all of my co-workers jealous!
