Jerked Sweet Potato Discs

We all sometimes get into a rutt of cooking certain foods the same way all the time. Rather than cook these as a mash, or with marshmallows on top, I thought I'd do them a little different. They're a nice way to do something different with the sweet potatoes, and still have the same flavors you're used to.

Butt Kickin' Blacken, Jamaican Jerk is used in this recipe, but it's not for heat. The flavors of the Jerk seasoning blend real well with the sweetness of the potatoes, and dark brown sugar that will really surprise your guests.

  • 2 Large Sweet Potatoes
  • Vegetable Oil, as needed
  • Kosher Salt, to taste
  • Black Pepper, to taste
  • Butt Kickin' Blacken, Jamaican Jerk, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Butt Kickin' Blacken, Jamaican Jerk

The day before:

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, or aluminum foil.

2. Slice the sweet potatoes into 1/2" - 5/8" rounds, and place them on the pan.

3. Drizzle a little bit of oil on each slice, then dust with the salt, pepper, and blacken. Flip them over and do the same to the other side.

Mix the dark brown sugar and blacken together, and set aside.

4. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip and sprinkle a little of the sugar mixture on top of each slice. Cook another 10 minutes to let the sugar melt.
5. You can do these, up to this point, 3 or 4 hours ahead of when you want to serve them. To re-heat, just set them back in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees while the meat is resting.
