Roasted Sweet Potatoes
This simple, colorful side dish of buttered, roasted sweet potato halves is sure to please the whole family.
6 sweet potatoes, fresh
1/4 cup butter, melted
Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Wash sweet potatoes well, removing any blemishes. Cut sweet potatoes in half, lengthwise. Place potatoes on a baking sheet or roasting pan, coat with melted butter and season with salt and pepper. Turn sweet potatoes onto the cut side, leaving a little space between each piece. You may need to divide them onto two baking sheets, depending on the size of the sweet potatoes.
- Place sweet potatoes in preheated oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until fork tender.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
