Default Sweet Potatoes

Baked Sweet Potatoes

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 large sweet potatoes
2 pinches dried oregano
2 pinches salt
2 pinches ground black pepper

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat the bottom of a glass or non-stick baking dish with olive oil, just enough to coat.
2. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Cut them into medium size pieces. Place the cut sweet potatoes in the baking dish and turn them so that they are coated with the olive oil. Sprinkle moderately with oregano, and salt and pepper (to taste).
3. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 60 minutes or until soft.

Note: I have not tried the Sweet Potatoes with Praline Sauce. I don't expect the Spenda/water to brown. This apparently is a recipe that somebody converted and just replaced the Splenda with the sugar in the recipe....so I'm not sure how the final recipe will turn out. I think I will buy some DaVInci Toasted Marshmallow sugar free syrup and try that instead.
