Sweet Potato Crunch

  • * Small sweet potatoes or yams
  • * olive oil
  • * salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet with olive oil.  Scrub unpeeled sweet potatoes and bake on the cookie sheet until fork tender, between 35 and 70 minutes, depending on size.  Cool just enough so you can handle the potatoes. With a potato masher slightly smash the potatoes right on the cookie sheet.  This should rupture the skin and leave leaving irregular chunks on top.  Push any sweet potato that comes through the masher back onto the potato. Drizzle lightly with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and just a little nutmeg.  Place back in 400 degree oven until crunchy on top.  Serve with roasted chicken or fish and a hearty serving of vegetables.
