Skillet Sweet Potatoes

I like having these skillet sweet potatoes as an alternate side sometimes, instead of boring old french fries. You can make them spicy with cayenne pepper, or try them with a little cinnamon. They are also great for breakfast.

Skillet Sweet Potatoes
2 sweet potatoes
1 TBSP oil
1 tsp salt
2 tsps dried parsley
Cayenne pepper OR ground cinnamon to taste

1. Peel and cube sweet potatoes into about 1/2 inch pieces.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the potatoes.
3. Stir the potatoes to coat with oil. Add the salt, parsley, and cayenne OR cinnamon. Mix well.
4. Cook the potatoes, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Serve hot. Top with more salt if desired.

Serves 4

I love these too! I like them with a little bit of thyme, salt, and pepper. So much better than french fries.
