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.
