4 sweet potatoes, diced
¾ cup crumbled goat cheese
4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) olive oil, divided
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
¼ cup walnuts (optional)
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Toss the sweet potatoes in 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, and pepper, and spread them out on a baking sheet. Roast them for 20 minutes or until the flesh is soft.

Remove the potatoes from the oven and place in a medium-sized serving bowl. Add cranberries and chili powder, as well as walnuts and bacon, if using. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil on the dish and mix thoroughly. Sprinkle goat cheese and fresh oregano on top; season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
