Beets N Sweets

I have had a bunch of beets sitting in my fridge all week waiting for some attention, so tonight I am bringing out the beets. Allrecipes.com is my first go to recipe site because it has such a large library of recipes, and the comments and pictures are super helpful. I picked Beets N Sweets because well, I had all the ingredients, and I thought it would go well with the Carne Asada from Trader Joe's I am cooking tonight. I will report back after I test it out on the family.

Beets N Sweets
3 tbspn olive oil
1 tsp garlic salt
3 beets ends cut and peeled, cut in cubes
1 large sweet potato - peeled and cut in cubes
1 sweet onion - cut in cubes
1 tsp sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 400. Toss beets in olive oil and lay out in single layer on cookie sheet - cook for 15 min alone. Meanwhile - toss rest of ingredients in a bowl and add to cookie sheet to bake for another 35-45 minutes.
