Combining two of my favorite dishes roasted sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce. This is the perfect side dish for any weeknight meal.
Full time: 45 minutes
You will need:
2-3 large sweet potatoes, diced into 1/2" pieces
1 small onion, diced fine
1 cup fresh cranberries
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tbsp butter, diced into 8 pieces(for roasting)
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Let us begin:
Preheat oven to 350'.
Place sweet potatoes in a deep baking dish and top with butter.
Roast potatoes for 25-30 minutes or until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork.
While the potatoes cook. In a small pot melt butter along with salt and pepper, over medium high heat.
Add in onions and cook 4-6 minutes or until they begin to turn translucent.
Add in orange juice and maple syrup, stir and cook for 1 minute.
Add in cranberries and bring liquid to a boil.
Once boiling reduce to a simmer and stir in Dijon mustard.
Cover and allow to cook 10-15 minutes or until cranberries begin to pop open.
Once the potatoes are fully cooked, carefully remove them from the oven.
After about 10-15 minutes, the cranberries will have cooked down nicely into a sauce.
Pour sauce over potatoes.
Stir to combine, serve, and enjoy!
