Sweet Potato Rounds

Is it an appetizer or an Hors-d’oeuvre? That depends are how you are serving them. Appetizers represent the first course eaten when seated at the table. Hors-d’oeuvres literally translates to “outside of the work” and are bite-sized finger foods offered at parties and receptions served with cocktails. Either way, these delicious sweet potato rounds are just about perfect for Thanksgiving. Do all the prep ahead of time and place them under the broiler for 3 minutes right before serving. Easy!

Here are my three favorite ways to serve sweet potato rounds that include a savory, a cheesy, and a sweet version to cover everyone’s taste. Ummm…. and there is no shame in enjoying all three versions!

Start by preparing the rounds. Wash and slice 4 sweet potatoes. Lay on a rimmed baking pan in a single file. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with my smoked salt seasoning. Pop in a 375°F. oven for 30 minutes, or until the potato is fork tender.

Cheesy Version: In a small bowl, combine 4 ounces of crumbled gorgonzola, 1/3 cup chopped pepitas, and 1/4 cup fresh chopped cranberries. Spoon over the prepared potato rounds. Broil for 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

    I love the idea of the pumpkin spice and brown sugar on sweet potatoes. Do you have a recipe for pumpkin spice at all, or a particular brand you would recommend?

      Thanks so much for asking! I always try to make my own blends if I have all the ingredients in my spice cabinet. If I have to go out to buy a needed spice I’ll just buy the blend. I love spice island for sentimental reason but always try to go organic.

      To make homemade pumpkin pie spice: 4 tsp. gd. cinnamon, 2 tsp. gd. ginger, 1 tsp. gd. cloves, 1/2 tsp. gd. nutmeg. Mix. Will keep up to 6 months. 🤗💙
