Roasted Sweet Potatoes

This is my favorite way to prepare sweet potatoes because it is so easy!

Sweet Potatoes
Olive Oil
Kosher Salt

Preheat oven to 350.

Wash whole sweet potatoes and place them in a roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Cover the roasting pan and place in the oven.

Check on them in 45 minutes.

Cut into pieces to serve.
