Simple Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I love to make these all year round.  I grilled 2 Pork Tenderloins on Thursday night.  We ate the smaller of the 2 and I was able to reheat the larger in the oven for about 20 minutes.  These potatoes were a perfect compliment to the leftovers.  Preheat oven to 350.  Peel and cut 2 Sweet Potatoes to similar sized chucks.  Add 3 Tbl Olive Oil to ovenproof skillet.  Toss potatoes in oil and place in oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes total.  After about 30 minutes turn potatoes over recoating with oil and rotate the pan.  After another 30 minutes, turn potatoes over again and Salt to taste.  I usually don't add Pepper but you can.  Cook for another 10-15 minutes. 
Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.  These offer a nice compliment of salty and sweet plus the color is always fabulous!  Great with all meats!
