There is one food I love, always return to and revere as comfort food at its finest. It also acts as lovely transportation for ketchup to hop on. They’re orange, they’re spotted, they’re cheetah taters:
To start, I try to find a sweet potato that’s the size of my foot:
Then I clean it, I swear.
-Pre-heat oven to 450*
-Line baking sheet with aluminum foil; spray with non-stick spray
-Cut sweet potato into desired shaped. I enjoy the half-moons best.
-Place evenly on baking sheet; lightly spray tops with non-stick and sprinkle with desired spices. I usually don’t add spice, but garam masala or cinnamon work brilliantly.
-Bake for 15 minutes. Flip. Bake for 15 minutes more, or until spots develop.
***Also, when the air starts to smell sweet and caramelly, you’re getting close!
-Take out of oven, plate, serve with 1/2- 1 C ketchup. Kidding. Kinda.
Enjoy the sweetness:
And if you should ever tire of just plain cheetahs (which you won’t), turn to this incredible Cinnamon Maple Sweet Potato Cream Cheese Toast:
On toasted bread:
-Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
-Layer of cheetahs
-Sprinkle of cinnamon
-Drizzle of maple syrup
But of course, old faithful never disappoints. Now go make spots!
