Sweet Potatoes! OMG! Is there anything better? Eat ’em baked or mashed or slice ’em thin into simple chips! OR … for Thanksgiving … GLAZE ’em.
Yup! Glaze those chips. Here follows the most decadent version of Sweet Potato Chips, ever! Easy, delish, and healthy, too! You’re gonna’ plotz, they’re so good!
ON THE DECADENT SIDE
HONEY GLAZED SWEET POTATOES!
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons local honey (my niece has a bee farm in her backyard, can’t get any fresher than that!)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
4 large sweet potatoes, sliced thin, thin, thin!
Rosemary, chopped – to taste
Freshly cracked black pepper – to taste
Kosher salt – to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Lightly coat a 9-by-13 inch baking pan with olive oil spray (you can find it in the ‘spray’ aisle or make your own in one of those spray containers)
In a small bowl, whisk together the water, brown sugar, honey and olive oil – until smooth!
Place a single layer of sweet potatoes in the baking pan. Brush the sauce over the sweet potatoes. Turn to coat the other side.
Bake until tender, or until crispy. Entirely up to you.
The trick is to coat them every 15 minutes or so. One side and then the other (yes, even though you’ve already coated both sides). We want to glaze these babies! When you get them to where you want them, transfer to serving dish and top with the chopped Rosemary, salt n’ pepper.
Enjoy and please share your favorite Thanksgiving recipes. Decadent or not!
Spread the word … NOT the icing!
