  • 2 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

the instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  4. Lay the slices out on the baking sheet in a single layer, spray the tops with more cooking oil if necessary.
  5. Place on the middle rack in the oven and bake for 10 minutes then flip them over and bake for another 8-12 minutes or until tender.
  6. While the sweet potatoes bake, use a stand mixer with the whisk attachment or handheld mixer to whip the goat cheese, milk, rosemary, salt and pepper until smooth and fluffy.
