Rather than a sweet potato casserole, create this classy sweet potato appetizer with sage and crispy prosciutto. Serve with a lemon aioli for extra flavor.
We’re all used to seeing loads of sweet potatoes this time of year. And it’s in all the same old ways. Marshmallows, casserole, brown sugar & walnuts….you know what I’m talking about. I wanted something different.
Sliced thinly, then a little olive oil drizzle, salt, pepper, prosciutto, and sage…then into the oven they go. I’m calling that three ingredients – not bad!
As an appetizer, these stacks are tasty on their own, but I liked dipping them in a lemon garlic mayo. Totally yum!
