Can anything really not taste good with honey and cinnamon? Or something prepared in cast iron? Nope! Cast Iron Sweet Potatoes with Honey and Cinnamon is right up that alley.
Honey Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes are a cast iron recipe that utilizes just a few simple ingredients. Sweet potatoes, honey, cinnamon and butter are all it takes for this verstile side dish recipe.
A few weeks back I asked a couple of neighborhood friends to bring over their favorite fall dishes in anticipation of Thanksgiving. Tiff hauled over her giant cast iron skillet filled with sticky sweet sweet potatoes tossed with honey and cinnamon.
Even though we were serving Honey Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes as a side, they could have just as easily been a dessert dish, they were SO good!
Cast iron is perfect for this sticky side dish recipe because it doesn’t stick and the heavy, thick bottom prevents sugars from burning. Plus, cast iron cooking is just plain cool. You can even serve your Honey Cinnamon Potatoes in the skillet.
The ultimate stove to table dish! This side dish is also so verstile it can be served with virtually any protein and anytime of the year.
