Hello, my name is Marty and I like to cook with butter.

There I said it. In a world obsessed with olive oil, coconut oil, and all natural good for you oils, I am declaring my love for real butter. Not like Paula Deen just eat the stick of butter like it's a candy bar kind of love but I do like my butter.

It sort of makes this simple recipe as far as I am concerned. And by simple, I mean s.i.m.p.l.e. but such great flavor! I like to pair it best with pork.

What you'll need:
about 4 to 6 good sized sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
1/2 to 3/4 a stick of real butter (depending on the number of potatoes you use)
Italian seasoning

What you'll do:
Melt your butter in a 9x13 baking dish
Stir your seasoning into the melted butter
Add your sliced sweet potatoes making sure to coat them well with the seasoned butter
Bake at 350 degrees until potatoes can be pierced with a fork easily (about 30 to 45 minutes)
Serve as a side to your favorite chicken or pork dish and enjoy!

    1. I have a friend who made them that way and he said they were tasty...I think he may have seasoned them with cinnamon though? Let me know how you like them!

    2. That's a good idea! Thanks for the tip Marty. As soon as my move is finished, I'm trying these for sure.
