My Favorite Side Dish

Pin It
When I get home from work I want a healthy meal that is easy to prepare and doesn't take long because I am usually starving!  Grilled chicken and oven baked Salmon are my go-to entrees, but my favorite side dish is a yummy sweet potato! 

Sometimes I bake them whole, sometimes I make oven roasted sweet potato fries, but most of the time I just slice them, toss them in olive oil, sprinkle on a little sea salt and fresh ground pepper and bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes.  So, so good and good for you too!! 

How do you like your sweet potato???

Roasted Sweet Potato Medalions

2 large Sweet Potatoes
1 T olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
Slice sweet potatoes about 1/4 inch thick and toss with olive oil.  Place them on the cookie sheet.
Sprinkle with sea salt and fresh ground pepper and place them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
**I usually turn them over after 10-12 minutes so they cook evenly.

Serves 3
