Sometimes, something so wonderful comes along, and you think to yourself, “How have I lived for over 30 years and never experienced this before?”
For me, that thing was tonight’s dinner.
I’d planned tacos for tonight (taco salad for me) but hubs had dental work today and said all he wanted for dinner was canned soup and grilled cheese. I took this as an opportunity to try something that I knew he wouldn’t like: sliders with sweet potato buns.
Y’all. I had no idea what bliss awaited me at the end of my 30 minutes of cooking. I’m just gonna show you first…
To make the buns, I cut a sweet potato into 1/2 inch slices (I used the first slice I cut to kind of gauge the others) and laid them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then I used my Misto olive oil mister to spritz both sides of the slices, and sprinkled a little cinnamon and garlic salt on them (I know– weird combo, but it was actually very tasty!). I popped those into my new convection oven at 400 degrees and baked for 30 minutes, flipping the “buns” at the 15-minute mark.
In the meantime, I grilled up some chicken pieces using my grill pan. When all was done, I added some lettuce, mustard, bacon, and a pickle, and omg. It was heaven!!!
I think next time I’ll try it with pulled pork. Which might be sooner rather than later!!
