Thyme Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Thyme Roasted Sweet Potatoes

"Sweet potatoes at their easiest! The potatoes slices need to be in single layer against the pan, not on top of one another. Great for a dinner party! Herbes de Provence with thyme or rosemary sprigs can be used instead of just thyme leaves. Serve warm or at room temperature with sprigs for garnish."

I cubed the sweet potatoes instead of cutting into rounds. These were a BIG hit at Thanksgiving. These potatoes will definitely be served regularly at my house.

I liked this a lot. I cheated for time sake, and fried wedges of sweet potato with other ingredients and it turned out great.
