A New Family Favorite..Roasted Honey Sweet Potatoes

A New Family Favorite..Roasted Honey Sweet Potatoes

Another year has flown by and it is almost Thanksgiving time. When we lived at the farm we had family and friends over and people who had no place to go. One year I invited a cute little lady I took care of at a nursing home. She was so excited and that is what the holiday season is about giving to others.
I know Turkeys are so expensive this year!! I found one at Walmart today for 99 cents a pound. Every where else is at $1.58 a pound for a turkey or more!!
What do you serve with your turkey dinner? We do mounds of fluffy potatoes and of course turkey gravy? ( I always add a teaspoon or two of Better than Chicken Bullion to the gravy.)
We also make Roasted Honey Sweet Potatoes, Grandma's Stuffing, ( I will be adding that recipe soon) fresh green beans, homemade rolls, fruit bowl, homemade cranberry sauce and of course pumpkin pie or pumpkin roll.
I have never been a sweet potato person but these Roasted Honey Sweet Potatoes will make you come back for seconds! They will become a family favorite for years.
Ingredients you will need…
SWEET POTATOES….medium-sized sweet potatoes.
