Caramelized-Onion and Sweet Potato Skillet

I totally lifted this recipe from the Green Giant website. It rocks. My husband made it last night, and was skeptical because it "looks to simple to be any good". Trust me, it IS easy and simple, and it is fabulously tasty. It throws together quickly with few ingredients, and is just as good cold as it is warm. Try it. I did not have jerk seasoning laying around the house when I made this the first time, so I searched for a homemade jerk seasoning recipe. Feel free to make your own (mine is great) or buy a commercial one.

Caramelized-Onion and Sweet Potato Skillet

1 t vegetable oil (I use olive or safflower)
1/4 large sweet onion, sliced
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
2 T brown sugar
1/2 t jerk seasoning
1 T chpd fresh parsley (optional)

In 10" skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and sweet potato, cook about 5 minutes stirring occasionally until light brown. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 10-12 minutes until potatoes are tender. Stir in brown sugar and jerk seasoning. Cook uncovered about 3 minutes until glazed. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
