  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Cinnamon Glaze
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) honey
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (218 degrees C).

  2. Peel and slice sweet potatoes into 1" thick rounds.  Place them on a roasting pan.   Drizzle with melted butter and sprinkle with salt.  Toss to coat evenly and distribute so they aren't touching on another.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Using a pair of tongs flip each potato and bake for another 20 minutes.  

Cinnamon Glaze
  1. In a small saucepan simmer the honey, orange juice, and cinnamon for 2-3 minutes or just to heat through.  Serve with potatoes.
