2 (1 ounce) packages
dry onion soup mix
sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
This came out wonderfully! I added an onion and used olive oil instead of vegetable oil... and cooked until well done.. I will be making this often!
I scaled the recipe down for 1 sweet potato...I used about a third of the packet of soup mix. I lined my pan with foil, and tossed the potato chunks, the oil and the soup mix in the pan to save on clean-up. I stirred about every ten minutes. I didn't have any problem with sticking, but like some other reviewers mentioned, many of the onion falkes burned pretty badly. The result still tasted OK, I picked out the most charred pieces...but I definately wouldn't serve this to anyone I love!
These are really, really good! I liked that they were different from the usual cinnamon flavor you find in most sweet potato recipes. I used EVOO instead of veg oil and lowered the oven temp to 400. No problems with burned onions...just perfectly cooked yummy potatoes. Thanks Jessica!
Mix sweet potatoes and white potatoes for another wonderful side dish!
These didn't need the full cooking time and i took them out after about 25 minutes so they didn't burn. They were lovely, a great side dish
Excellent recipe that's a welcome change from all the typical sugary sweet potato recipes! I cut the recipe in half and used olive oil vs. veg. oil. I also left the skin on the potatoes. This was so easy, yet so tasty! I cut back on the cooking time - more like 30 minutes and tossed this a couple of times during cooking. I would definitly make this again and perhaps do a combination of russet and sweet potaotes.
I've done this same recipe using red potatoes, the soup mix gives it an awesome flavor. Good recipe. I may try the boxed vegetable soup mix and oil on cut up russet potatoes now too. Endless.
I liked the flavor overall, but watch the little onions; they will burn.
