Cinnamon Butter Pecan Sweet Potato Bites Paleo and Gluten Free Side Dish

This recipe has a funny story. I was in New York last week for work and the special at one of the restaurants we went to was Sweet Potato Ravioli with Cinnamon Butter Pecan Sauce. Doesn’t that sound amazing? Of course I couldn’t order it. I made a point not to even look at the dish if anyone around me ordered it but still could not stop thinking about the combination of sweet potatoes and cinnamon butter pecan sauce. So now you know my secret of how I come up with ideas of things to cook. These are really really easy and fast. Plus roasting anything is awesome because it just sits in the oven most of the time it’s cooking and you do very little work. They make a perfect side dish or appetizer.

  1. […] Cinnamon butter pecan sweet potato bites. These dudes were yummy, but I recommend that you roast the potatoes at 375 or so instead of 425, or do it for less than 20 minutes. Some of mine got too crispy. Also, if you use a mandolin to slice the sweet potatoes, and you can’t find the guard, take the extra 30 seconds to dig through the drawer and find it so that you don’t spend ten minutes bandaging your cut and disinfecting the mandolin and cutting board after you cut yourself.
