Smoked paprika plays off the natural sweetness of the roasted sweet potatoes and gives the butter mixture a rich garnet color. Because of the sheer number of dishes available at Thanksgiving, we keep the serving size to a more modest one-half of a potato per person. You could also use small (4-oz.) sweet potatoes or cut the roasted potatoes crosswise into large pieces before drizzling with the butter mixture.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork; rub with oil. Place potatoes on a jelly-roll pan; bake at 400°F for 1 hour or until tender. Slice potatoes in half.

Step 3

Combine butter, honey, and smoked paprika in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at high 1 minute, stirring once after 30 seconds. Drizzle butter mixture evenly over potato halves. Sprinkle potato halves with cilantro and salt.
