Baked Sweet Potato
I love sweet potato, especially when baked in the oven.
Sweet potato recipes are usually oven baked or roasted as a whole but sometimes, they are cut into wedges, slices or chips.
My favorite recipe is sliced sweet potato, bake with butter, salt and herbs.
This is one of the best sweet potato recipes I’ve ever tasted. The recipe yields crispy and buttery chips, perfect for Thanksgiving!
