Curried Sweet Potato Rounds with Honeyed Walnuts, Cranberries and Blue Cheese |

In twenty-seven days I will be saying it is Christmas eve.

So crazy.

Today I have a little last-minute appetizer/snack/side dish for you guys. It is a triple threat.

And they are super easy, cute and actually pretty healthy. Which obviously just means more room for pie!

I really hope you guys are still looking for a good appetizer for tomorrow because these are so good.

Yes, they may be simple, but there is so much flavor here.

The sweet potatoes are tossed in coconut oil and curry and then roasted in the oven where they are going to get caramelized and fluffy. The sweet potatoes alone are so good.

But I wanted to add a little color and texture.

Enter the honeyed (yes it is a word! I looked it up) walnuts and cranberries.

Perfect combo to go with the sweet and slightly spicy sweet potatoes.

And then the cheese… well you know how I feel about cheese, but the cheese on these is the ultimate final touch.

Kind of like the flaked sea salt on these cookies. It just ties everything together. If you are not into blue cheese I would recommend swapping for goat cheese. I have done this and the curry and goat cheese combo is equally as good!

Ok, so kind of a short post for you guys today.

I have to prepare. People are flooding in by the minute, all three fridges are nearing their empty state and I have to go to the grocery store on the day before Thanksgiving! Send help.

I need it.

Oh, but if you are like me and very unplanned this Thanksgiving, I do have a few ideas for you.

Let’s do a little blast from the past. I made this Sage Pesto Pumpkin Soup, this Kale and Wild Rice Casserole, this Buffalo Cheddar Beer Bread Stuffing, these EASY nutella turtle cookies, these EASY peanut butter snickerdoodle chocolate cups and this Fudge Brownie Creme Brulee Pie!

  • Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the melted coconut oil, thai red curry paste, curry powder, cumin, ginger, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth.
  • Place the potato slices on the parchment and drizzle curry mixture on top. Rub the mixture on both sides of the slices, place in a single layer, then bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip the slices. Bake for another 15-20 minutes until golden brown and caramelized. Remove from the oven and let cool at least five minutes before topping.
  • At the same time you roast the sweet potatoes add the walnuts to a small baking dish and toss with the honey. Bake for 10 -15 minutes or until lightly golden and toasted. Remove from the oven and immediately spoon the walnuts onto a parchment lined plate in a single layer so they do not stick to each other. Once the walnuts have cooled for about five minutes toss them with the cranberries.
  • To assemble the bites top each sweet potato round with a little bit of the walnuts and cranberries. Sprinkle each round with blue cheese and garnish with one sage leaf. Drizzle with honey if desired.


These can be made ahead and served at room temperature. Just make sure to drizzle on the honey right before serving. You can also serve these warm by fully assembling them (minus the honey) and placing them on a baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove and then drizzle with honey.

  1. 5 stars
    I made this delicious appetizer to take a party and everyone loved it. All flavors and textures came together so perfectly delicious. I added sprinkled pomegranate seeds on top.

  2. Made these, but subbed raisins for craisins, and didn’t have nuts or curry paste. Still came out absolutely delightful!

  3. Girl, when are you getting your own show? Because you are like a kitchen genius and I would love to watch you work your magic! These sound crazy awesome good!!!

  4. I made these for an appetizer on Thanksgiving and they were a HUGE hit! I used goat cheese because most people in my family aren’t big fans of bleu and ended up running the cheese, honeyed walnuts and dried cranberries in a food processor before topping the sweet potatoes and it simplified plating in a very chaotic kitchen. Thanks for the great recipe. 🙂

  5. I love putting a savory spin on sweet potatoes – fab appetizer idea. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! 🙂

  6. Are you a mind-reader? YOU’RE A MIND-READER. I was just dreaming about making up sweet potato h’or d’oeuvres with candied nuts, cranberries, and (gorgonzola) cheese, no joke. Instead of making them now though, I’ll settle for a Thanksgiving invite to your place. What a wonderful menu, have a really great one–thankful, indeed!

  7. Tieghan, I think I might have to replace the turkey, mashed potatoes, etc with these so can I just load up on pie. Yeah, I think that sounds like the right move. 🙂

  8. wow, you’re totally right. i can’t believe it’s that close to christmas..this year, what the heck! these bites are perfect for entertaining…like tomorrow!

  9. Well look at these little tasty bites. And really didn’t need the Christmas countdown reminder LOL…now that I have a baby, the countdown actually mean something!

  10. Perfect way to start the Thanksgiving feasting! I do not envy your trip to the grocery store today….good luck!

  11. I can’t believe how these last months have flown by. I just can’t. Though I’m excited to see holiday party invites coming in. Yay for parties! Speaking of parties. Next one I have, I’m totally making these! They look darn good!

  12. Ahhh! You’re grocery store shopping today?! That’s my worst fear ever. Haha! Luckily, I actually don’t cook much food on Thanksgiving. We always go to friends–and I just end up doing the pies. It’s sort of nice to have the day off 😉

    These sweet potato rounds look so tasty!!!

    1. I know! Who grocery shops the day before Thanksgiving! It was terrible! LOL!
      Thanks Laura Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

  13. This looks awesome! I will be making the topping for these but putting them into mini phyllo shells. Sooo good! Thanks Tieghan!

  14. There is so much yum in this posting, I don’t even know where to begin! From the sweet potatoes, to the curry, to the nuts and then cranberries and cheese? Yes please. The only thing I am not digging is the whole “snack/appetizer” idea..I want this for my meal please! Pinned!
