    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 and sweet, sweet potatoes tossed with honey and cinnamon.

    Even though we were serving her Honey Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes as a side dish, they could have just as easily been a dessert, they were SO good. Everyone kept going back for more and more!

    And the recipe was so easy! I feel like most folks bake their sweet potatoes. Whether they are whole, twice baked or in a casserole, they are rarely prepared in a skillet, let alone cast iron.

    Cast iron is perfect for this sweet side dish because it doesn’t stick and the heavy, thick bottom prevents the sugars from burning too quickly. The result is a nice caramelization vs. a bitter char. Plus, cast iron cooking is just plain cool.

    The key to that beautiful, stick-free cook is making sure your cast iron pan is well seasoned. Also, never wash your cast iron with soap and water. It takes the seasoning aka “the non-stick” right away.

    FACT: Baby sweet potato leaves and shoots are sometimes consumed instead of the actual potato!

    Do your best to cut the potatoes roughly the same size. This goes for most dishes as it means that they will cook at roughly the same rate. Translation: beautiful, even color every time.

    Once they are done, you can even serve your Honey Cinnamon Potatoes in the skillet. Grab a mitt for the handle and a trivet and you are ready to go. Did someone say fewer dishes to wash? Don’t have to ask me twice!

    FACT: Sweet Potatoes are the official vegetable of North Carolina.

    Not only that but if you are cooking these on the stove, you are freeing up that oven for other things you might be adding to the table. Thanksgiving or not, having the oven free to cook other dishes is a great thing.

    The ultimate stove to table dish! This side dish is also so versatile it can be served with virtually any protein and any time of the year.

    I almost forgot to mention. Sweet potatoes are great for you! Not only are they high in fiber, but they are packed with other great things like iron, calcium, Vitamins B & C and beta-carotene, an anti-oxidant.

    One thing is for sure, if you need a winning side dish to feed friends and family, this is going to be at the top of the list in no time at all.
