Honey and Cinnamon Glazed Sweet Potatoes #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone and Happy Sunday to you!

Today I am extremely thankful because I have the week off!  Woohoo!!  That means lots of baking and cooking for me!!  Today’s mission for #SundaySupper is to make something to bring to the table and to share with you something that we are thankful for.  For me, I have a lot to be thankful for.  I’m a pretty simple person when it comes to being thankful.  So here is a little list of what I am thankful for:  #1 My Husband!  I am Thankful that he puts up with my non-sense about food, weight and my crazy ideas.  Sometimes I wonder how he puts up with me.  he he #2.  Little Jenny; she has brought pure joy to my life and even though she isn’t my daughter, she is like one to me and I don’t know how my life would be without her.  #3 My Mom, I love her to death and even though she lives on the East Coast, I am thankful that we are still close and that I can talk to her about anything and she doesn’t judge me.  #4 My Sisters, I don’t see them nearly enough and every year I say that has to change and it really does.  I don’t have a very large family, but I need to stay connected and get more involved then I am.  It’s just hard because everyone lives in different states.  #5 My dogs, yes my dogs!  They bring me excitement, maybe a little too much, they bring me joy and they also bring me comfort and keep me on my toes.  Trust me, they keep me busy, especially when I am trying to take photos of my food and my boy is always trying to steal it!  Ugh!! #6 My Friends, I am truly thankful for having my friends in my life!  The girls are the ones I can tell my secrets too, gossip with and they get me, or at least they act like they do.  lol #7 YOU!!!!  Yes you!!!  If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be here writing this.   It is you why I love to blog, create recipes.  All your kind words, comments, advice, encouragement an understanding.  I am here everyday because of you and I couldn’t thank you enough!!

Honey and Cinnamon Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Oh boy, oh boy!! Time to skip the mushy stuff and get to the sweet stuff! Today’s recipe is one of my all time favorites!!! This my Honey and Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes. Oh my gawd!!! It is sooooooooo good! Sweet, sweet, sweet and savory! These sweet potatoes have it all. When you bite into it, it’s like candy! You have a soft roasted sweet potato, that is caramelized in a honey and cinnamon glaze and roasted with thinly sliced onions. Then when it’s all cooked you toss in a handful of cranberries and top with melted butter and cinnamon mixture. I told you this is a treat!!

I made this last week for dinner and my Husband wouldn’t touch it because its sweet potatoes. So you know who had to eat the whole batch you see here, yup, you got it, me! Not one onion, cranberry or potato was left. I ate it all and I’m proud. :)
Honey and Cinnamon Glazed Sweet Potatoes
I nibbled on this dish after work, I stuck it in a burrito shell, topped it on a salad and I never looked back. My favorite way to eat it was cold, straight from the fridge, picking it with your fingers. This was my afternoon snack, and a darn good one. It will most definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. Leftovers of sweet potatoes is a good thing and if you make this, make an extra-large batch, it’s well worth it in leftovers.
Honey and Cinnamon Glazed Sweet Potatoes
This dish would be perfect for serving for Thanksgiving, Christmas or anytime of the year. It’s dairy free, gluten-free and darn good. You could also make it vegan, by subbing the honey for maple syrup. Ohhhh, I bet that would be good too!! I think I am doing that next, But to boot the melted butter and cinnamon on top makes all the better, so be sure you do that!!

Honey and Cinnamon Glazed Sweet Potatoes
My CSA box gave me a bunch of sweet potatoes, but they were tiny and I mean tiny, so in the nutrition stats I gave you the weight of the potatoes. My guess is four average size sweet potatoes will be the same. My theory is the more the merrier if you ask me! So if you have more potatoes the better.

I am really excited about this recipe today and it’s sure to please any sweet potato lover! :) Be sure to check out what holiday recipes the gang from #SundaySupper are sharing with you today.

Have a great Sunday!

Toodles,

Jennifer

P.S. I am also grateful that I fell in love with sweet potatoes! They have been in my life for two years and I never turned back!

  9. We don’t serve sweet potato casserole because I can’t stand the texture. The texture is part of the reason I decided to not wean my daughter with baby food and instead did baby led weaning. But this version I would enjoy.
