Eating healthy sweet potatoes doesn't have to be bland. These potatoes are fried in a light amount of oil, keeping them healthy and light! The brown sugar and cinnamon blends for a light caramel glazing.
Serves: 4
  • 4 medium Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 tablespoon Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon Brown Sugar
  1. Wash and peel sweet potatoes. Slice into ¼" thick rounds.
  2. Over medium heat, heat olive oil, butter and cinnamon in a large fry pan. Add sweet potatoes layering flat if possible.
  3. Watch potatoes as they can burn easily. Fry until potatoes are cooked and well-browned. Sprinkle with brown sugar and toss a couple times while still frying. Remove from stove and serve immediately.
