Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

These nutrient rich, crispy potatoes are the perfect side dish in any meal. They are particulary delicious with my Gyro Style Burgers because they taste delicious dipped in the tzatziki sauce. I also like to top them with poached or over-easy eggs for a tasty breakfast.

3 medium Sweet Potatoes (cleaned with a damp paper towel)
1 small Yellow Onion (peeled)
1 tablespoon Honey
2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Chop the sweet potatoes into 2 inch chunks by cutting each twice length-wise and 4 to 5 times width-wise. Add to medium sized mixing bowl. Chop the onion into smiliar sized and add to bowl. Add salt, honey, and olive oil to potato and onion mixture and mix well with hands. Spread mixture onto baking sheet in one layer. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, tossing once during baking.

Servings: 4, around 165 calories per serving
Additional Suggestions: try using different types of potatoes, and instead of honey add fresh herbs or spices in order to change up the flavors and feel of the dish.
