Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Roasted sweet potatoes. They can be a simple side or a base for other tasty recipes.

My next four posts will be recipes that use roasted sweet potato puree as their base. You can follow the recipe below or use potato leftovers.

If using leftovers, the potato should be as dry as possible. Excess moisture such as butter or cream in the potato will affect each recipe differently. I will include notes for using leftovers with each recipe. I hope you enjoy this recipe and the posts to follow.
