    Sweet and Salty Roasted Sweet Potatoes

    These sweet and salty roasted sweet potatoes were inspired by my very favorite sweet potato fries. When we lived in Kansas City, we frequented a local restaurant, BRGR.

    They had incredible sweet potato fries simply because they were drizzled in brown sugar and heavy flakes of sea salt. Simple, right? Well, so are most of my favorite dishes.

    I am a firm believer that a few simple, fresh ingredients often make the best dishes and decided to make those sweet potato fries into sweet and salty roasted sweet potatoes for an easy side dish {that you can enjoy all week} or for a Thanksgiving side alternative to sweet potato casserole {that I can’t help but dream about}.

    Roasted Sweet Potatoes – Perfect Healthy Alternative

    Healthy? Absolutely… but I also happen to think sweet potatoes are pretty. They’re high in fiber and I can get my kids to eat them, so that’s as close as I can get to winning these days! Not to mention they make a great addition to any sweet potato bar!

    This is one of those dishes you feel good about serving. So easy and so much flavor. See those pretty little flakes of sea salt? I set my grinder to the largest setting for nice, big, flavorful flakes.
