Author's Notes

You could also use a panini press or griddle for this recipe instead of a waffle maker.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and line a sheet tray with foil.
step 2
Slice the Sweet Potatoes (6) all over with a knife to ventilate them and allow the oil and seasoning to seep through. Then drizzle them all generously with Olive Oil (as needed) and sprinkle liberally with Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste). Roast them until tender for about 40 minutes, then let them cool enough to handle.
