If I’m really in a rush to throw a side together that needs no attention while I’m cooking something else, this is it. Sweet potato rounds. It takes all of 5 minutes to chop, season, toss and then get these into the oven. They also have the awesome side effect of making grumpy people, well, less grumpy. While they are in the oven, you have more than enough time to throw together a salad, cook up some tasty protein and even open up a bottle of wine. If you’re into that sort of thing. *GLUG*
These would be fantastic with the rest of your Memorial Day BBQ!Print
