Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy clean up.
Spread the sweet potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet and pour the melted butter and olive oil over the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle the brown sugar and ground ginger. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
Roast in the oven, for 40 -45 minutes or until tender and the edges are lightly brown, turning them with a spatula once during the cooking process.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and sprinkle with the pecan topping. Bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
I use unsalted butter. However, you can use salted butter if that is what you have handy. Just season the sweet potatoes lightly with salt.
