This year, I’ve turned my sweet potatoes up a notch. A nice departure from the mundane, often dried out, and pretty boring sweet potatoes of yesteryear. Also, this is a much healthier version than those that have been slathered in brown sugar and marshmallow goop.

These sweet potatoes are roasted to perfection with honey, olive oil, and rosemary, and then coated with melted sage brown butter and sprinkled with sea salt. They are sweet, savory, nutty, fragrant, and pretty addictive!

You can make my Sage Brown Butter recipe days or even months in advance, and then the sweet potato part is quite simple and quick, with ridiculously tasty results. I have written the recipe in a portion size of 2 cups. This is enough to adequately serve as a side for 2 people. Multiply as needed 😉
