ROASTED SWEET POTATOES AND ONIONS RECIPE

Here is a super simple, but tasty combination to use as a side dish.  We love it and hope you do as well.  It is sweet potatoes, pan roasted in the oven, with onions.  







First, we chopped/diced up some sweet potatoes.  Cut them into small cubes, bite size, I think we used about 4 medium sized sweet potatoes for this.




Then we sliced up some onions, 2 mediums here.  You can leave them in rings.  Toss it all with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste (we put a dash of red pepper flakes on occasion). 



Roast them in a preheated, 400 degree oven, for about 15 minutes, depending on your oven.  Just keep an eye on them.  The small dice will make the sweet potatoes cook quickly and the onion "rings" will also brown up quickly.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Onions
Dish them out onto a plate and serve!  The sweetness of the potatoes and the caramelized onions are a great combination.  It's a quick dish to put together, simple but memorable.

Enjoy!

Growing up, we never had "sweet" sweet potatoes, just savory. Like cooked with a beef roast. No one else seems to like this idea. This combination is ver appealing to me. Can't wait to try it.

Oh, this would be great for him. I've heard sweet potatoes are better for blood sugar than regular white potatoes. Hope he likes it!

1st Man said...

LOL, but at least you know for next time, ha.

I hope you enjoy, it sounds like an odd combination but it's yummy!

1st Man said...

Yay, hope you like it. I understand, some people only think of them as something super sweet with marshmallows all over the top, ha.

1st Man said...

Thank you, it really is good. Hope you enjoy it!!

My Family would like these. I bake them in the oven whole, just like you would do baking potatos and they like that quite well. No added sugar or marshmallows that way.
Will give this a try. Sure look good.
