The combination of melted butter, honey and cinnamon make this sweet potato a must-have; just imagine the sweet taste of tender, soft, melt-in-the-mouth sweet potatoes and the unmistakably cinnamon scent and aroma wafting in the kitchen. To me, this is one of the best Thanksgiving side dishes ever!
What’s more, this recipe is completely fail-proof, fool-proof, with an active time of practically less than 10 minutes. First, you pre-heat your oven to 375F, peel the skin off the sweet potatoes, then toss it with melted butter, honey and dashes of cinnamon.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes and you’re set. Depending on how big your family is, you will need to double or triple this recipe. Other side dishes that you can try are honey roasted butternut squash, garlic Parmesan roasted butternut squash, and garlic herb roasted potatoes. I can’t wait for Turkey day!!

I hate the thought of losing all the goodness in the peeling. Have you tried this recipe with the peeling left on?
You have to peel the skin.
Never thought about combining potatoes with cinnamon and honey! I’ll definitely try now))
I use allspice rather than just cinnamon because allspice has a richer flavor. Oh, also some cumin for heat.
This dish is so much more delicious than it sounds… With few ingredients and the quick and easy steps, one does not expect much – but this was absolutely great!! Thank you so much for sharing, this tastes like my grandmother’s sweet potatoes, and oh how I miss those!
