I got this crazy idea to try and recreate a sweet potato and pecan pie as a healthier side dish for our Sunday Pork Roast. I’m kind of new to using sweet potatoes still, so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out.
It actually just started as roasted sweet potatoes, but as I started cutting the sweet potato up, I thought I didn’t really want to turn on the oven. That was followed by trying to decide what spices to use. When I tossed in cinnamon and sugar, that’s when the idea of pie popped into my head. So I hit the cupboard and found my bag of chopped pecans. It all came together so nicely.
The cinnamon and sugar added a nice little extra sweetness, that helped the kids enjoy the potatoes. YAY!
I hope you enjoy these as well. I wish I could tell you exactly how to make the cranberry gravy I had with this as well, but since it came off the pork roast and I just thickened it up, I’ll have to try and recreate it soon.

Mmmmmm….now that's the way I like my sweet potatoes prepared!
I found a 13 x 4 inch non-stick tart pan with a removable bottom at Williams-Sonoma: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/gobel-standard-nonstick-rectangular-tart-pan/?cm_src=AutoCSLPIP
Standard versions are available on Amazon, but I prefer non-stick.
Thank you for the link to the pan!

I LOVE Sweet potatoes but not really when they are made sweeter… I might omit the sugar portion but still add the cinnamon.
