If you like sweet potatoes and are looking for a new variation to try, look no further! The honey and cinnamon enhance the flavor and cook in no time!
I’m back at it with yet another cast iron side dish to try! However, if you don’t own a cast iron pan, simply use any oven safe skillet on hand!
Last week, sweet potatoes were on sale at the local grocery store. Being that I have three picky kids, sweet potatoes are hit or miss in my family, all depending on how they are prepared. In fry form, nope, my kids are a no go on those. However, in sweet potato casserole or in this version, YES! My kids beg for seconds!
I think it has to do with the sweetness because what kid doesn’t like sweet, almost sugar like foods, right?
A few nights ago, we peeled the sweet potatoes, diced them up and tossed them into some honey and cinnamon. Super simple and quick, and once tender, these were amazing! Fork tender, packed with flavor, and complimented our chicken dinner perfectly!
You can decrease or increase the cinnamon/honey ratio to your preference, so feel free to make it your own!
We didn’t have much for leftovers, but the small amount we did have was reheated the next day with our lunch and once again, thoroughly enjoyed!
Such a simple, yet tasty side dish to pair with any meal!
