Crispy Cinnamon Roasted Potatoes

Roasted New Potatoes with Saigon Cinnamon and Sea Salt

Roasting root vegetables brings out a natural sweetness that works well with a wide variety of spices. Still, when most people think of roasted potatoes, they consider little more than olive oil, salt, and pepper. Sure that can be delicious, but don't you want something a little less dull on occasion?

Use a cinnamon stick to spice things up! It may be surprising, but cinnamon and potatoes work wonderfully together. That festive spiciness l
ends itself beautifully to that natural sweetness we mentioned earlier. Plus, the cinnamon stick contributes additional sweetness and a mild, woody flavor with hints of citrusy notes.

We found that the perfect cinnamon to potato ratio is 1 stick for 1 pound of potatoes. You can break the cinnamon stick to intensify the flavor or leave it as it is for just a hint of cinnamon goodness.

This dish is a fantastic side to just about any protein, whether cooked on a grill, in the oven, or any other way. They are even a good stand-in for country potatoes or hashbrowns with breakfast!
