Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

This is another recipe that seems to be going 'viral' on Facebook. Everyone posts/shares it, but no one says if they've tried it or not. Well, I did! These are really good!! My only suggestion is to try to get the cubes of potatoes as close to the same size as possible so they cook the same.  Could become my fav tater!!!

ROASTED SWEET POTATOES
Makes 6 Servings @ 2 PointsPlus™
OR
Makes 4 Servings @ 3 PointsPlus™

 
3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size cubes (@3 cups)
2 tsp olive oil
1 TBSP light butter
1 TBSP brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
sea salt (to taste)


Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Spray 8 x 11” baking dish.

Place potatoes in the baking dish. Melt the butter in a microwave and pour over potatoes along with the other ingredients.



Bake 60 minutes, turning once or twice.


Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
