Recipe: Halloween Roasted Sweet Potatoes

The kids will love this scary dish!
Serves 4
• 1 ½ pounds sweet potatoes, unpeeled and sliced 1/2 inch thick
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 to 1 ½ teaspoons dried thyme, or 2 sprigs fresh, leaves removed from stem
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 1/4 cup crumbled cooked bacon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place the sliced sweet potatoes in a bowl with olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat. Cover and microwave about 6 minutes or until slightly softened but not fully cooked, stirring halfway.

Using tongs, place slices on a cookie sheet and use a cookie cutter to cut out Halloween shapes or a paring knife to make jack-o’-lantern cutouts.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through and browned.

Place on a serving dish and top with crumbled bacon.
