We love to make sweet potatoes or yams like this… it’s so easy!  And you don’t need much to do it. This is really a good spin on our traditional sweet potato skewers and the cinnamon adds a nice fall touch.



-2 yams or sweet potatoes

-Olive oil

-Salt & pepper



Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Wash the sweet potatoes/yams thoroughly and prick with a fork.  Microwave for 4-5 minutes on high.  Take out and let cool.  Slice each potato in half, then into quarters.  Lay flat on a baking pan and sprinkle with olive oil and salt & pepper to taste.  How much olive oil?  Just enough to lightly cover them all.  Not really an exact measurement (yea… that’s how we roll!).


Bake in the oven on 400 for about 30 – 40 minutes until bright in color and soft to the touch.  Sprinkle with cinnamon (as much or little as you’d like) and bake for another 5 minutes.   Take out of the oven and cool.  image[1]That’s it.  Doesn’t get much easier 🙂
