2 of my favorite veggie eats right now

  I have been having one of them plus protein for dinner all this week.

Sweet potato slices
(this is a basic recipe that was stolen and tweaked from scroll down to sweet tater recipe)
  • Slice sweet potato into half inch slices.
  • Lay aluminum foil on baking sheet.  
  • Spray Pam on foil then lie down sliced potatoes.
  •  Spray Pam on the slices then sprinkle with sea salt. 
  •  Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.  
  • Take out and flip slices and respray Pam and sprinkle sea salt. 
  •  Bake in 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes
This makes the sweet potatoes taste like candy  The natural sugar in the potato caramelizes and almost forms a crispy crust on top (if eaten while HOT) After they cool the flavor is still amazing they just melt in your mouth.  
I always eat the leftovers cold the next day so I don't know how it reheats.  LOL
2 thumbs up!

Sauteed cabbage with bacon
(this one is 100% mine but I am sure there is a recipe that does the same thing as it is really basic. The salt of the bacon pairs so well with the flavor of the cooked cabbage)
  • Core and slice one cabbage into 1/4 in shreds.  
  • Add 2-3 pats of butter to large pan and turn heat on med high.
  • Add cabbage and slowly saute to bring out the natural sweet/savory flavor cabbage can have.
  • Take cabbage out and place in bowl for now.
  • Take a pack of bacon an rough chop into 1 inch chunks.
  • Fry bacon till your desired crispness
  • Serve pile of cabbage with a few chunks of bacon as garnish.
  • When putting food away add bacon into cabbage mixture.  
Reheats very well.  
2 thumbs up!
