Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

2-3 large red sweet potatoes
2-3 Tbsp butter or margarine
Coarse salt and pepper

Peel sweet potatoes with a potato peeler. Cut into medium sized chunks. Place into a glass 8x8 pan. Dot with butter. Sprinkle salt and pepper over top. Cover with foil. Bake in a 350 oven for 40-50 minutes, or until softened.

We tried these one year instead of making the sweet potato casserole with brown sugar and marshmallows. I was skeptical, but they are fantastic. The salt and pepper bring out a wonderful flavor. We eat these year round at our house.
