If you’re looking for an easy to prep side, melted sweet potatoes are the perfect recipe for this holiday season.
Roasted at high heat in butter, chicken broth and herbs, then topped with maple syrup at then end. They’re sweet, savory and hard to keep your hands off of. What more could you ask for?
If you’re like me during the holidays, there oven is on overtime to get meals on the table. When trying to time a meal to come out at the same time when multiple dishes need baking is the bane of my existence.
My DeLonghi’s Livenza Digital Compact Convection Oven is coming in clutch right now since it can hit temps up to 450 F. Having a chicken roast in the oven, then cooking up these melted sweet potatoes that require high temps is something I couldn’t do without an additional oven.
The Livenza Digital Compact Convection Oven has 9 different cooking function, and since it uses convection heat, circulating hot air, meals cook up to 40% faster and evenly.
I like using the convection mode for this melted sweet potato recipes, since the constant hot air circulating gives the potatoes nice crispiness on the outside, and amazingly soft on the inside.
These melted sweet potatoes should almost be illegal. They’re decatant, full of savory goodness from the butter, chicken broth and herbs.
But just the right amount of sweetness from the natural flavor of sweet potatoes, but with a little something extra, by finishing them off with a little maple syrup.
Yes. Maple syrup. SO. GOOD.
Be sure to head over to De’Longhi to learn more about the Livenza Digital Compact Convection Oven.
It’s spacious enough to fit in a chicken, pizza or a batch of melted sweet potatoes, yet compact enough to complement any kitchen.
Exactly what a kitchen appliance junkie like me loves!
