Not-Crispy Crispy Sweet Potato Roast

We celebrated Christmas with my grandma and family today. Whew, the holidays are officially over!

I made this Crispy Sweet Potato Roast from Smitten Kitchen. The flavor was great, but it wasn't crispy. I'm pretty sure that's my fault. I used a Dutch oven with tall sides, which probably trapped a bunch of moisture in... and then I pulled it out early because we had to leave... and then I put the lid on and it probably kept steaming in its own heat until we ate it.

I also forgot to take a picture, which is sad, because it was pretty with all the thinly sliced sweet potatoes arranged in circles. Maybe I'll try a do-over and see if I can't get it crispy next time.
