Sweet Potato Disks - my go-to side dish

When I am looking to throw together a meal in under 30 minutes, with a hungry husband and 11 month old under foot, I need something easy, tasty, and great for baby food later. 

We have this at least 1x per week.

My go-to side dish is Sweet Potato Disks.  I have made these for our little family of three and I have made these for when we have a big group of company coming over.  They are always a hit and everyone asks for the recipe. 

It is so simple it hardly needs a recipe.

Are you ready?

Sweet Potato Disks


2-3 sweet potatoes - yellow, ruby, or white - any kind, or mix and match
garlic powder
coconut or olive oil


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Peel the sweet potatoes with a potato peeler, slice the potatoes into disks.
Place the disks onto a cookie sheet lined with foil, or my favorite (use it EVERY DAY) a stoneware bar ban ---> http://amzn.to/18nwc31

Drizzle the disks with coconut or olive oil, toss to coat - a light coating is good, you just want to make it so your seasoning will stick.

Sprinkle the disks with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cumin. Must cumin "shakers" do not let out much, you want to give them a good sprinkle of cumin.

When deciding if you have enough seasoning - think season fries - you want to see the good stuff!

Bake the disks for 25-30 mins or until they are tender and starting to brown. Flipping half way through.

These make a GREAT easy side dish for pork chops, steak, baked chicken, or really any other savory protein.

My 11 month old LOVES to have these as a snack, I cut them into bite sized pieces for him, perfect finger food. 

What is your go- to side dish?
