Crash Hot Sweet Potatoes


1 Large Sweet Potato
& 1/2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Sweet Paprika
1/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder
1/8 Teaspoon Garlic Salt

2 Tablespoons Butter, melted 
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

 Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Peel sweet potato and slice, about 1 inch thick.

Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil.  Add sweet potato slices and boil for about 10-15 minutes, until somewhat soft but not cooked all the way through.

Let them cool for about 10 minutes.  On a parchment lined baking sheet flatten each sweet potato piece slightly, being careful not go squash them too much.

Blend all the spices together, making sure to get the sugar completely incorporated.

Drizzle each of the pieces with a mixture of the melted butter and olive oil.

Sprinkle each one with the spice mixture, pressing it lightly on the surface. Flip them over, carefully, and coat with the butter/olive oil and spice mixture.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, then turn them over and bake for another 10 minutes. 

Paul and I had these as a side dish with salmon last night. Delish!
