Notes

Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
  1. I never use parchment paper or a cooking mat when I use this method to roast sweet potatoes. The reason is that I am looking for that caramelized top that comes from the honey and olive oil and you won't get that if you use paper to cover the cookie sheet.
  2. SALT! I can't say it enough, sweet potatoes need SALT! So don't be shy, make sure you season these liberally.
  3. I made a very small slice on the backside of each potato before roasting so that they sit nicely on the plate when I serve them. There's nothing fun about chasing a rounded sweet potato around your plate.
