Southern Roasted Sweet Potatoes

This is the perfect side dish for anytime of year.  As a southern girl, I love sweet potatoes and they are one of my favorite comfort foods.  My hubby often snares when I place a sweet potato on his plate but last night he was going nuts over these.  Guess I will be making them like this more often.     

1 medium Sweet Potato cubed
1-2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil (just enough to coat them & help the spices adhere)
1 teaspoon Chili powder
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon dried Thyme
Salt & Pepper to taste
Garnish with your favorite Honey Mustard dressing 

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees

2. Cube up your sweet potatoes (NOTE: I cube mine a little bigger than I want them to be when I eat them because they shrink once they have been cooked)

3. In a cast iron skillet, add potatoes, toss them in olive oil, chili powder, cinnamon, thyme and salt & pepper to taste.

4. Place them in the oven for 15 - 20 mins. When you can tell they are done by taking a knife & piercing them, if it goes in easily then they are perfect. Remove.

5. Drizzle them with Honey Mustard dressing & serve. ENJOY!!!

NOTE:  Please feel free to use more or less spices depending on your tastes but this flavor combo is unbelievable.
