Maple roasted sweet potatoes are the perfect side to some slow roast pork belly or any other roast meat. They’re sweet, soft and fluffy and should be served with lime wedges to cut through the sweetness a little. The perfect autumn or winter warmer, but also ideal during baked on a barbecue, summer or winter! They are ready in under an hour, but are so worth the wait. This recipe is a spin that takes baked potatoes to a new level that the whole family will love. Delicious!
