Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Ham

6 WWPP Posted by 3 years ago 6 Comments

This is my new favorite dish! I made it the night before a competition this weekend and then made it again Sunday for something quick to grab out of the fridge.

I don’t normally add lots of things when I roast veggies but the addition of the maple syrup and spices really compliment the sweet potatoes and ham. I roasted it just to the brink of burnt, helping the caramelization process and really drawing out even more flavor.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and HamOf course no one in the house likes this but me. I think I can convert the kids in time but The Husband’s indifference towards sweet potatoes is here to stay. He’s just not a fan.

Here’s what I did…

  • 2 sweet potatoes, cut into about 3/4-inch cubes (600g)
  • 10 oz ham, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil (14g) (Your favorite oil will be fine)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (20g)
  • ~1/4 tbsp molasses (5g)
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp allspice

Preheat the oven to 425 Degrees.

Throw everything in a bowl and toss to coat.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    What type ham?


      December 10, 2014

      This time I used what was labeled "Cottage" ham but I've used just plain old deli ham cut into cubes. You can really use anything you like.

    I just made this tonight and it was so good! I used Hormel Extra Lean ham (just because I had it) and fresh rosemary, and it was so flavorful. Loved it. Thanks Ronnie, and I appreciate the PP values too.
