    These are delicious. A sweet and savory side with a kick from the chili pepper. Super easy to prepare and you can throw it in the oven and forget about it for 40 min.

    These are hands down the best sweet potatoes ever and super easy! I used a little dry thyme instead of fresh but you don't even need it.

    This side dish was a hit with my family. Even my mom liked it and she is iffy on sweet potatos. Very Easy as well!
