Progressive Dinner: Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Scallions

BStein Sweet Potatoes PD

This is a hearty side dish, but since the sweet potatoes are roasted in olive oil and just tossed with a touch of butter, they are really pretty healthy. In the summertime, I make these on the grill — instead of chunks, just slice the potatoes into thick lengthwise slices, toss in olive oil, grill until tender, then proceed with the recipe. The hot baking sheet and the hot grill provide the same effect — caramelized sweet potatoes. Yum!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Scallions

6 side servings

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
olive oil
5 scallions, chopped
2 T. butter
kosher butter to taste

Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
Place diced potatoes in a bowl and toss with enough olive oil to coat.
Pour a thin coating of oil onto two large baking sheets.
Place half of potatoes on each sheet.
Roast for 25 to 30 minutes in oven, switching sheets (top to bottom)
halfway through cooking time.
When potatoes are done, remove from oven and scoop potatoes into a bowl
(leaving any leftover olive oil on pan).
