Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Bananas

September 11, 2009

Sweet but with a touch of savory, this side dish is a tropical treat. I like it with pork or spicy chicken.

  • 3 or 4 Yams or Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 or 3 Bananas
  • Brown Sugar
  • Rum (dark would be better but I only had white on hand)
  • Cumin
  • Cinnamon
  • White Ground Pepper
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Butter
  • Pecan Pieces


Melt the butter. In the meantime, peel the sweet potatoes.


Slice them into rounds.


Cut the bananas into chunks.


Sprinkle with a bit of brown sugar, maybe 1/3 of a cup.


Add a teaspoon each of cinnamon and cumin and a dash or two of white ground pepper.


Add a splash of rum…


…the melted butter…


…and a handful of pecans.


Stir it until every thing is well coated.


Spread it onto a baking dish and bake at 350 until the sweet potatoes are soft and tender, maybe 30 to 45 minutes? I really forgot to look at the clock.


Take it out of the oven and let it sit for a few minutes before moving to serving dish.


Stir it all together and serve.
