Sweet Potatoes with Herbed Ricotta and Wildflower Honey

Everyone’s had green bean casserole, pickled beets, and stuffing; show off your creative side vis-à-vis a deceptively easy to make recipe. This seasonal fare is super quick to make and will impress people from first glance. From the earthiness of the sweet potatoes and roasted pumpkin seeds, to the sweet creaminess of the herbed ricotta and cranberries, this dish will be a major hit.

I used Savannah Bee Company’s Wildflower honey, artisanal and reminiscent of Georgia. This robust honey stands up to the piquancy of the herbs and seasonings with ease.

Give these handheld treats a go for your next potluck, quick dinner, or just as a snack. You’re gonna love ‘em.
