I absolutely love this Sweet Potato Goat Cheese Appetizer. They’re so good I have to make myself not eat too many! Sweet Potatoes make a great companion to your holiday meals as either mashed, candied, sweet or savory and can be enjoyed in recipes from breakfast to dessert too. But today, I’m sharing a way to make sweet potatoes as an easy appetizer. These rounds are the perfect bite-sized snack and are a bit on the healthier side so you don’t need to feel guilty having a few.
As I was making, I was thinking of some ways you could change them up a bit which of course I did. If you aren’t a fan of goat cheese, try replacing with regular cream cheese. Walnuts could replace the pecans and dried apricots could be used for the dried cranberries. For those that might want a bit of tanginess, try using a balsamic glaze drizzle. The rounds are your starters and just use your imagination to create your own version. For sure you will love the roasted sweet potatoes since they are the star of the show!
Once you have topped your rounds with the creamy goat cheese mixture, candied pecans and sweet apricots, be sure to give them a drizzle of honey. That provides a nice bit of sweetness.
Yum! I’m guessing these will be one of your go-to appetizers this holiday season! They are definitely going to be on my menu.
